After making a brief appearance in this year's 'Tusk', Lily Rose Melody Depp and Harley Quinn Smith will be getting a film all to themselves next year.
Kevin Smith is in the process of directing the second film in his new trilogy set in rural Canada. The film is a loose sequel to 'Tusk' (making its first appearance at the Toronto Film Festival this year) and contains some of the same characters. Among these are two young girls, working in a convenience store, played by Lily Rose Melody Depp and Harley Quinn Smith.
Smith is finally making the super hero film everyone has been waiting for
The girls are the fifteen-year-old girls of actor Johnny Depp and director Kevin Smith and are due to star in the film 'Yoga Hosers' next year. Between the two films, Johnny Depp will be playing the legendary man-hunter Guy Lapointe, who aids the two yoga enthusiasts in their quest to fight an ancient evil that threatens the plans of their upcoming party.
After making a brief appearance in 'Tusk', the girls return for their own feature next year
'Tusk', tells the story of a podcast host who travels from the US to Canada to interview an elderly, retired sea captain. Things go awry when the captain reveals that his life was saved by a friendly walrus, and proceeds to turn the host into an aquatic mammal in honour of the creature. Johnny Depp's character, Lapointe, is sent to find the missing host.
While 'Tusk' takes heavy inspiration from old school Hammer Horror films, 'Yoga Hosers' is supposedly the superhero movie people have been waiting for Smith to make for his entire career. After making a name for himself by surrounding his films in comic book and general geek mythology (Stan Lee and Mark Hamill have both played parts in his films), Smith was even asked to write the script for a Superman movie which was never used.
"People always ask me 'Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?' " Smith said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. "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."
