Kevin Smith’s horror feature Tusk hits theaters in a few weeks, but the director has already lined up his next project, and it’s set to star his daughter and the daughter of another famous Hollywood dad, Johnny Depp.
Titled Yoga Hosers, the film will star Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp, the teenage daughters of Smith and Depp, respectively. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project will begin shooting this week and is envisioned as the second installment of Smith’s “True North” trilogy of films based on Canadian legends and culture.
The film is written by Smith and features a pair a teenage girls in Manitoba who must use their extensive knowledge of yoga to battle an “ancient evil” that emerges from the earth and endangers their ability to attend an upcoming party. They’re assisted in their mission by a feared hunter named Guy Lapointe, who will be played by Depp.
“People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?'” said Smith in a statement accompanying the announcement. “This is it — but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls.”
While Yoga Heroes offers a decidedly different tone than Tusk, much of the latter film’s cast will return for the teenage action-adventure movie. There’s no word on a release date for the film at this point, but quite a few other recurring actors (and possibly a few characters) from Smith’s previous films are expected to make cameos in the film.
