A24 And Demarest Films To Release Kevin Smith’s “Tusk”

December 11, 2013

A24 and Demarest Films have teamed up to acquire Kevin Smith’s latest film TUSK. A24 plans for a wide release of the film in the third quarter of 2014.

Said A24, “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.

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!” says Smith.

Demarest’s Sam Englebardt added, “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.

Synopsis: “Tusk follows a podcaster (Long) who sets out to interview an eccentric, reclusive old seafarer, only to find himself a plaything in the gruesome plot of a deranged killer (Parks).

Haley Joel Osment (The Sixth Sense), Genesis Rodriguez, Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers, Live Free or Die Hard, A Case of You) and cult favorite Michael Parks (Red State, Django Unchained) all star.
