Tusk was the first chapter in director Kevin Smith's True North trilogy, which consists of three Canadian set horror movies. The next installment, which has already wrapped, is called Yoga Hosers, and everything will come to an end with Moose Jaws. Up until now, these three movies did not appear to be a part of Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse, which consists of such neo-classics as Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy. The one thing that has always connected the Askewniverse is the omnipresence of Jay and Silent Bob. Now, it seems they will bring everything full circle, appearing in the climax of Moose Jaws. But as Kevin Smith explains it, it's not going to end quite so pretty for one of the dynamic duo.
Over the years, Kevin Smith has become easily identifiable by both his Silent Bob character and his tent sized hockey jerseys. While it doesn't seem like he'll ever retire his personal style, it sounds like he's ready to bury Silent Bob for good. Yes, the character who first appeared in 1994 with a cameo in the director's feature film debut Clerks, is going to be put to rest in glorious fashion. And there will be blood, sweat and a lot of tears.Read More
You may recall that, back in April, Kevin Smith revealed MallBrats would be his next movie, with production slated to begin in late 2015, as opposed to the original plan, where the sequel would shoot in early 2016. The filmmaker also said in April they had found a mall that was "going away" soon, which meant the production had to be moved up so they could shoot there before it went away. Now that production has been moved back to January 2016, it isn't known if the Exton Square Mall is the same mall he was referring to in that original report.
The confirmed cast members for MallBrats include Kevin Smith (Silent Bob), Jason Mewes (Jay), Jason Lee (Brodie), Stan Lee (Himself), Michael Rooker (Mr. Svenning), Shannen Doherty (Rene), Jeremy London (T.S.), Renée Humphrey (Trish), Joey Lauren Adams (Gwen), Sven-Ole Thorsen (LaFours), Ethan Suplee (William), Bryan Johnson (Steve Dave), Walter Flanagan (The Fanboy), Brian O'Halloran (Gil Hicks) and Scott Mosier (Roddy). It isn't known if Claire Forlani (Brandi Svenning) or Priscilla Barnes (the topless psychic Ivannah) will reprise their roles. Kevin Smith also hopes to have Ben Affleck join in just for a very small cameo, but he has never been confirmed to join the cast, due to his Batman commitments at Warner Bros. The director hasn't announced any new cast members yet, but now that a production schedule has been locked in, perhaps we'll be hearing about new additions to the cast soon.Read More
Kevin Smith has tweeted out an update on his Twitter page, revealing that he has wrapped production on Yoga Hosers, the next installment in his True North Trilogy. The director also revealed that he will debut the first trailer at Comic-Con, during his annual Hall H panel, and that he hopes to premiere the film at the Toronto International Film Festival, just like he did with the first True North Trilogy movie, Tusk. Kevin Smith said that he watched the finished film last night, complete with 95 visual effects shots and full credits. And he loves it!
In response to a fan's question, Kevin Smith also posted an image of the Yoga Hosers credits, which confirms that "The Colleens," played by the director's daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp, will both be back for the final installment of the True North Trilogy, Moose Jaws. Both characters had small roles in Tusk, but they have much bigger roles in Yoga Hosers, as two convenience store clerks who team up with a mysterious hunter (Johnny Depp) to stop an evil supernatural force. It isn't known what other cast members from Yoga Hosers will be back for Moose Jaws.Read More
Jim Jacks had always wanted to make a sequel to the original Mallrats. Saldy, he passed away a little over a year ago. His untimely death helped motivate and push Kevin Smith to see the film become a reality. At this time, the sequel does not have a release date. It will begin shooting sometime before the end of the year, possibly before the end of summer.
The confirmed cast members for MallBrats include Kevin Smith (Silent Bob), Jason Mewes (Jay), Jason Lee (Brodie), Stan Lee (Himself), Michael Rooker (Mr. Svenning), Shannen Doherty (Rene), Jeremy London (T.S.), Renée Humphrey (Trish), Joey Lauren Adams (Gwen), Sven-Ole Thorsen (LaFours), Ethan Suplee (William), Bryan Johnson (Steve Dave), Walter Flanagan (The Fanboy), Brian O'Halloran (Gil Hicks) and Scott Mosier (Roddy). Claire Forlani, who played Brandi Svenning, is being targeted for lockdown, and it's possible that Priscilla Barnes will return as topless psychic Ivannah. Kevin Smith also hopes to have Ben Affleck join in just for a very small cameo, but doesn't know if the actor will be able to do it due to his Batman commitments at Warner Bros. While we await the next cast confirmation, take a look at the director's tweet:
20 years in the making. 113 pages fulla old friends & new jokes. This is for you, Jim. Wish you were here. #MallBratspic.twitter.com/O6HfIWbRY6— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) May 11, 2015Read More
