Official Announcement: Kevin Smith’s Bizarre Horror Film “Tusk”

October 10, 2013

Demarest Films (Machete Kills, A Most Wanted Man) is producing writer/director Kevin Smith’s bizarre new film titled TUSK.

Tusk, which begins shooting in Charlotte, North Carolina on November 4th, will star Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers, Live Free or Die Hard) and Michael Parks (Red State, Django Unchained). The idea evolved from Episode 259 of Smith’s long-running podcast with Scott Mosier.

Tusk’s plot “follows a podcaster who sets out to interview an eccentric, reclusive old seafarer, only to find himself a plaything in the gruesome plot of a deranged killer.

Demarest is a director-driven company, and Kevin has always been at the top of our list of filmmakers with whom we want to work,” Demarest CEO Sam Englebardt said.

Chairman William D. Johnson added, “We are hugely excited to see what results when Kevin applies his brilliant, twisted mind to classic horror filmmaking.

I can’t thank the good folks at Demarest enough for wading into weird waters with us,” said Smith. “They are the walrus. Goo-goo-gajoob.
