Before embarking on the long-awaited sequel Clerks III, director Kevin Smith has decided to tackle a Canadian horror trilogy that started with Tusk, continues with Yoga Hosers, and ends with Moose Jaw. The second film is currently shooting in Los Angeles and should be in theaters next year. THR has our first look at the horror comedy, which teams his own daughter Harley Quinn Smith with her real-life best friend, Johnny Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Melody Depp.
Appearing alongside Johnny Depp as a Quebec police detective, all three will reprise their roles from Tusk, forming the connective tissue for this creepy tale of two convenience store clerks who get wrapped up in an ancient Manitoba curse.
Kevin Smith wrote and is directing Yoga Hosers, which continues the Clerks tradition as it focuses on these two high schoolers and their after-school job at a Eh-2-Zed. When a supernatural evil threatens to crash their 12th grade party, these two yoga nuts must team up with legendary man-hunter Guy Lapointe using all 7 chakras, one warrior pose at a time, to save the day.
As you can see in the picture, the two girls have a certain kind of chemistry, and that should come as no surprise. The 15 year olds have been life-long friends and have known each other since the first grade. Kevin Smith explains:
"Acting is a job of making choices, and Harley and Lily were making their own character and delivery choices from day one on the flick. At one point, I pulled them both aside to ask, 'You are making excellent choices without me saying anything. What adult is telling you to do these things behind my back?' The girls said they'd simply learned to act from watching movies and TV shows their whole lives. But in their case, acting and goofing around is in their blood. And it was thrilling to watch them both take their first steps in what's bound to be a lifelong passion for performance."
Take a look at this first image, as it may be some time before we see the first footage, which isn't expected to make its way online until sometime this February:
