Kevin Smith wants Michael Parks and Quentin Tarantino to star in Tusk, his "walrus centipede" horror film
All right, so I'm sure you've come here for the crazy, so let's jump in shall we? Apparently, Kevin Smith dropped the news that while perusing the news one day (and likely high) he came across a story that intrigued him so much that the turned it into a horror script called TUSK. So, what in the hell is TUSK? I'm glad you asked. TUSK is described by Smith as "a cuddly HUMAN CENTIPEDE" which will take the true-life story of a man stranded on an island with a walrus, whom he misses so much after returning home that he puts an ad in the paper for a roommate...a walrus roommate. No, not a real walrus, mind you, but an actual human being who will "dress like a walrus" for 2 hours a day and basically play the part. What, you don't believe me? Take a look at the original ad and then come on back.
Smith called this “the most f**ked-up, absurd movie ever” during his panel in Hall H during Comic Con. Smith also said that he has sent the script out to his RED STATE star Michael Parks and that he wants Quentin Tarantino to play the walrus roommate. And, according to Twitter, Smith is wasting no time with the film set to shoot in September.
So, it appears that, as many of us suspected, Kevin Smith is far from retiring anytime soon. With CLERKS 3 on the way and his long-in-development hockey project floating around somewhere, the writer/director isn't showing any signs of quitting. It also appears that he may be smoking too much weed while reading the news. That said, a human centipede-like horror flick with Michael Parks and Quentin Tarantino? Man, if that happened I wouldn't be able to resist the absurdity.
What do you think? Is this the movie you've been waiting for from Smith or has he lost his damn mind?
