Smith made the announcement on his Twitter account Thursday:
The film stars Justin Long, Michael Parks, Genesis Rodriguez and Haley Joel Osment. Producers are Demarest Films’ Sam Englebardt, David Greathouse and Shannon McIntosh.
Originating from one of Smith’s SModcasts, it follows a journalist (Long) who encounters a worldwide adventurer (Parks) and finds himself a plaything in the gruesome plot of a deranged killer.
Smith directed from his own script, which evolved from episode 259 of his Smodcast podcast. Smodcast Pictures produced “Red State” and the animated “Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie.”
“After all the interesting and exciting movie panels are over, Hall H belongs to a middle-aged man who once worked with BatFleck!” the description says. “Ask ComiKev questions and get ready to say #WalrusYes as Kev premieres the trailer to his first film in three years: the twisted, transformative tale of Tusk!
