Kevin Smith’s Next Screenplay “Helena Handbasket” Pits Mankind And Hell Versus Jesus

December 31, 2013

While we wait for Kevin’s Smith upcoming horror/comedy TUSK to get released in 2014, the writer/director is already focused on his next horror project, HELENA HANDBASKET, which aligns mankind with the minions of Hell for war against a giant Jesus!

The idea is to, once again, take an episode of SModcast and turn it into a movie,” Smith reveals on his Facebook page. “It’s worked out quite nicely with ‘TUSK’ (thanks largely to the cast, the crew and the good folks at Demarest and at a24, who’ll be releasing the flick this fall), so I wanna see if I can do it again.

Speaking on the plot, “Granted, this time the plot of the movie concerns mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus – which means the budget has to be LOW, because NOBODY’S gonna wanna make that movie. At all. And I know this going in, so I won’t be heartbroken if it never goes beyond the script. But… if the script is funny enough? Who knows? That walrus movie seemed pretty daffy and far-fetched until we were standing on the ‘TUSK’ set bringing that shit to life four months and change after first making it up in episode 259 of SModcast.

Sounds pretty bizarre and interesting, but I’m still looking forward to Clerks 3.
