It's almost done...
The Wrap reports that Kevin Smith's horror film Tusk will be distributed by A24 and Demarest Films. The movie will arrive in the third quarter of 2014.
The film stars Justin Long, Michael Parks, Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment. It's based on an idea Smith had on a SModcast, which he also wrote. It's currently in production. It stars Long as a journalist who finds a story in Mr. Howe (Parks), a worldwide adventurer with a strange love for walruses. Demarest's Sam Englebardt and David Greathouse are producing with Shannon McIntosh.
A24 said: "We had the privilege of visiting Kevin on the ‘Tusk' set and seeing some of his early footage. We can say with certainty that this movie will blow people's minds. Truly one you'll have to see to believe."
Smith added: "I'm as happy as the day Miramax bought Clerks back in '94! We're so lucky A24 fell in love with our walrus picture and jumped in the pool with us. I was a big fan of how they released ‘The Bling Ring' and ‘Spring Breakers,' so I was praying ‘Tusk' would take root there. If anyone knows how to bring this flick to the masses, it's them!"
Englebardt said: "We're thrilled that A24 has joined us in backing Kevin's wild, deviant vision. ‘Tusk' will be a horror movie for the ages and we couldn't imagine a better partner in bringing it to the world."
