Man-walrus! A tease from Kevin Smith for his horror movie Tusk starring Justin Long

Nov. 19, 2013by: Jesse Giroux

Kevin Smith has been posting pictures from his upcoming movie TUSK on his Instagram like a twelve-year-old with a new iPhone, and one of his latest updates is this anatomically correct-ish tease of the man-walrus featured in the film.

TUSK is inspired by the true story of an advertisement from a man looking for someone to dress as a walrus and play with him after he grew attached to the animal while stuck on a deserted island.

Synopsis:

When his best friend and podcast co-host goes missing in the backwoods of Canada, a young guy joins forces with his friend's girlfriend to search for him.

Justin Long will play the podcaster who goes missing in TUSK, and it also stars Haley Joel Osment as his best friend, Genesis Rodriguez as Long's girlfriend, and Michael Parks as the man who posted the advertisement. In his Instagram posts, Kevin Smith says production for TUSK should be finished by the end of the week, and he's already edited some footage for the film.

TUSK sounds quite twisted, and for the first time in what feels like forever, I'm pretty excited for a new Kevin Smith movie. Although it's being described as a horror movie, I wonder if it will be purely a horror flick, or if there will be some comedic elements. Smith previously compared his movie to THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE, and if it's anywhere near the level of f*cked up as that film, we could be in for a real treat with TUSK.

TUSK should be in theaters sometime in 2014.

I am actually excited to see what Smith does with this. I enjoyed Red State far more than I expected and this sounds quite twisted.

Walrus Yes. So much Walrus Yes.

Look, I don't get why anybody wouldn't want to see Justin Long being mutilated.

If they do those $1 Stars for charity that you can write your name on and they stick all over the theater, I will buy one for each of you.

- Calm me a Kevin Smith apologist or whatever, I just want to see a fucked up movie where Michael Parks turns Justin Long in to a Walrus. Hopefully this one won't botch the ending like Red State did.

So people who like smith's work, myself included, are sheep? Movies are subjective, sorry if some of us disagree with you BIGGER BOAT since you clearly are the definitive voice on what films are worthy. Please help us be better in the future with your all knowing comments.

I'm sorry but for all the great movies he gave us, his past few have been shit. You're fooling yourself if any movie other than Zach and Miri (which was meh) that he's directed in the past 12 years hasn't made you want to scratch your eyeballs out.

Bigger boat, just curious but did Kevin Smith hit your dog with a car or something? The subject seems to be personal for you.
Jomygod, I enjoyed Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Clerks2, and Red State and didn't enjoy his other movies of the past 12 years... Please explain to me why I didn't fool myself into liking the others as well.

I wonder how seriously they're going to take it, but I have to admit, that artwork is cool and ever so slightly creepy.
