Kevin Smith is teaming up with Johnny Depp for his new project entitled Yoga Hosers, which starts production next week and will be the second entry in the director's "True North Trilogy," following next month's Tusk. Both the filmmaker and the actor's daughters, Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Melody Depp, are starring along with Johnny Depp and the entire cast of Tusk.
The story follows 15-year-old friends Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Melody Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith) who both have after-school jobs at a convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. The girls' plans to attend a big party are dashed when an ancient evil begins to rise from the Canadian surface, and they team with a legendary Montreal hunter named Guy LaPointe (Johnny Depp) to defeat this evil force with, "all seven Charkas, one Warrior Pose at a time." Both Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Melody Depp's characters briefly appear in Tusk, which hits theaters this September.
Kevin Smith is directing from his own script, with Elizabeth Destro, Jordan Monsanto and Jennifer Schwalbach Smith producing. Tusk co-stars such as Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach Smith and Harley Morenstein have signed on, along with new cast members Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Robert Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Jason Mewes.
StarStream Entertainment is providing the financing and producing the film in association with Invincible Pictures, Abbolita Productions and Smith's SModcast Pictures.
"People always ask me 'Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?' This is it - but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two fifteen year old girls."
StarStream CEO Kim Leadford also released the following statement.
"The timing couldn't be more perfect as so many production companies are struggling to find content to fill a serious void in the market of female superheroes and antiheroes. And, it's pretty exciting to have their dads making the film with them."
