Kevin Smith's Tusk picked up by XYZ Films, heading to Berlin

XYZ Films has partnered with Demarest Films and A24 on Kevin Smith’s TUSK, coming aboard to handle all international sales rights. The film, also written by Smith, stars Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Michael Parks. Demarest (A MOST WANTED MAN, MACHETE KILLS) financed and produced TUSK in partnership with New York-based distributor A24 (SPRING BREAKERS, THE BLING RING), who will release it wide in the third quarter of 2014.

TUSK is a modern-day monster movie that follows a journalist named Wallace (Long) who finds the story of a lifetime in Mr. Howe (Parks), a worldwide adventurer with amazing tales and a curious penchant for walruses.

Demarest’s Sam Englebardt commented: “XYZ Films has incredible taste, particularly in the world of horror, so we are thrilled that they will be our partner on this groundbreaking film from Kevin Smith.”

XYZ will be introducing the project, currently in production, to international buyers at the European Film Market in February.
