Kevin Smith’s Tusk is set to make its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in a few short days. In celebration of that, we have a newly released promotional comic panel for Tusk. You can check it out after the jump!
The idea for the film originated from director Kevin Smith’s SModacst. The concept grew from there and found Smith putting together a script and getting the project off the ground. Tusk was shot over the course of three weeks in November 2013 and is about to make its world premiere at TIFF with a theatrical release scheduled for September 19, 2014.
Kevin Smith’s Tusk tells the story of Wallace, a young man that travels to Canada to conduct an interview for his podcast. But when he arrives, Wallace discovers that his interview subject has other plans for him: Specifically, he plans to turn Wallace into a human walrus.
Tusk stars Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers) as Wallace and Michael Parks (Red State) as Howard, the walrus enthusiast.
Smith has already penned a spinoff script featuring two of the minor characters from Tusk called Yoga-Hosers. The upcoming spinoff has already confirmed that both Johnny Depp and Natasha Lyonne are gearing up to be part of the film.
