Nicolas Cage Kevin Smith Tim Burton

Back in the 1990s Batman director Tim Burton signed on to direct a new Superman movie penned by Mallrats writer and comic book enthusiast Kevin Smith and starring Nicolas Cage, but sadly the film never made it to the big screen. Now Superman Lives, the man of steel’s adventure which failed to take off, is once again being resurrected, this time in a doc exploring why the film never got off the ground.

Nicolas CageFootage of Nicolas Cage testing a Superman suit is making waves online.

Kevin Smith has announced there will be a sequel to Mallrats. Mallrats, the 1995 romantic comedy which starred Smith, Ben Affleck, Jason Lee, Shannen Doherty and Jeremy London, was a prequel to the 1994 film Clerks. The films both flopped at the box office but have since achieved cult status.

Justin Long's Agent Tried To Warn Him Off Kevin Smith's 'Tusk'


Justin Long Kevin Smith

The idea for Kevin Smith's new horror movie Tusk starring Justin Long was born from a podcast and most critics agree that it should have remained in its infancy. Long plays a podcast who is targeted by a sadistic killer while attempting to land an interview with a misanthropic adventurer - an original idea for sure, but Tusk never fulfils its potential. 

Tusk

"There's too much forced winking in it; everything is a goof, a lark, a Smith-style in-joke for the in-crowd," said Stephanie Zacharek of Village Voice.

Everything You Need To Know About Kevin Smith's And Johnny Depp's Film Yoga Hosers


Johnny Depp Kevin Smith Michael Parks Haley Joel Osment Tony Hale Jason Mewes

After a run of poorly received films that have dented Johnny Depp’s reputation as a box-office magnet, the Hollywood superstar must be keen to move onto pastures anew. For his newest venture, Depp has teamed up with cult filmmaker Kevin Smith in a high-concept action movie based around the exploits of a pair of teen yoga fanatics and their fight against evil spirits. Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose and Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn will take the lead roles whilst Depp will co-star in the curiously entitled project, Yoga Hosers. 

Johnny DeppIn recent years, Depp's box-office status has tailed off after some poor performances.

Set in rural Canada, Smith has written the film and will direct it when it begins production. The story will follow the two girls as they battle a mysterious and ancient evil that threatens a planned party by rising from the underground, penetrating through a spiritual netherworld to usurp the two girl’s weekend plans to attend the coolest party in town. It will mark the second venture by Smith in a trilogy of films, nicknamed the “True North Trilogy” set in the vast and spacious Canadian countryside. The first, Tusk, is currently scheduled to do the rounds in the Autumnal film festival circuit and features largely the same cast as Yoga Hosers. Harley Quinn and Lily Rose also appear in Tusk in roles that are synonymous with Smith’s directorial oeuvre: convenience store clerks. For Yoga Hosers, however, the girl will take on much more pro-active roles.

Kevin Smith Johnny Depp

So Kevin Smith is collaborating with Johnny Depp on a movie. Beware, this could get very, very weird. So, Yoga Hosers. According to The Hollywood Reporter, principal photography begins today on what has been described as a “comic book movie.” Not only will Depp star in the film, the cast also includes his daughter Lily-Rose Depp, as well as Smith’s own daughter Harley Quinn Smith (that’s not a stage name, by the way.)

Kevin Smith
Filming has begun on the latest from Kevin James.

The movie is part of Smith’s True North trilogy about Canadian myths and culture and the sequel to Tusk, which is set to premiere at the Toronto Film Festival this September. Hosers  will see a return of the entire Tusk cast, with a few notable additions besides Lily-Rose and Harley.

So, What CAN Kevin Smith Tell Us About His Visit To Star Wars Land?


Kevin Smith Jj Abrams

We know a few things from Kevin Smith’s trip to the Star Wars Episode VII set. He cried, we saw that in the selfie, and he gave a strong hint that Stormtroopers would make a return for the reboot. So, having signed a confidentially agreement, what else do we know about his visit?

Star Wars Episode VII

"I saw uniforms; I saw artillery that I haven't seen since I was a kid," he continued. "I saw them shooting an actual sequence in a set that is real – I walked across the set; there were explosions – and it looked like a shot right out of a fucking Star Wars movie," he said.

No 'Star Wars Episode VII' News Means Kevin Smith Takes Centre Stage


Kevin Smith Star Wars Jj Abrams Harrison Ford

Star Wars Episode VII has done a pretty good job of churning out fairly newsworthy stuff since it was announced following Disney’s acquisition of LucasFilm and everything related to a galaxy far, far away.

Star Wars

Yes, ‘this person is starring as this thing,’ or ‘this old guy broke his leg doing this, or even ‘this man is in charge of another thing do to with this thing’ – they all happened and they were just about newsworthy. But with nothing that important taking place, it looks like we’ll have to talk about Kevin Smith, who took a photo of his own face while being around all the Star Wars things going on.
