Lily-Rose Depp has landed her first lead role in the Kevin Smith-directed horror comedy 'Yoga Hosers,' co-starring with her famous father.
Just like her famous father, Lily-Rose Depp is embarking on a career in the movie industry. The 15 year-old girl is set to co-star with daddy Johnny Depp in the upcoming film 'Yoga Hosers, which will be directed by Kevin Smith.

This will mark Lily-Rose's very first lead acting job in a Hollywood flick, and it is expected to be a family affair as Smith has also cast his daughter Harley Quinn Smith, 15, in the other lead role, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The forthcoming film, dubbed as a "comic book movie," is a spin-off of the filmmaker's 2014 horror-comedy 'Tusk,' which is the second instalment in his True North trilogy, and is slated for a world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this coming September.

"People always ask me 'Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?'" Smith told Us Weekly of 'Yoga Hosers'. "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 15-year-old girls."
"We are thrilled to be making a teen comic book movie with Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp," Executive Producer Kim Leadford added to the mag. "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."

Lily-Rose and Harley's first acting jobs were cameos in 'Tusk,' and their characters in the second instalment in the trilogy, which began filming recently, are spin-offs from that.
