Writer/director Kevin Smith will officially make his first comic book film with Yoga Hosers starring his daughter Harley Quinn Smith and Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose Depp. StarStream Entertainment’s on board to finance and produce the horror comedy which will also feature Depp and the cast of Tusk: Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach and Harley Morenstein. The Yoga Hosers cast also includes Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Jason Mewes.
“People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?’” said director Smith. “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 fifteen year old girls.”
“I’m absolutely in love with the StarStream team and to say I’m tickled to be making a movie with my only begotten kid is an understatement. Also happy to report that this will be the first PG-13 horror movie I’ve made since Jersey Girl,” added Smith.
“We are thrilled to be making a teen comic book movie with Harley Quinn Smith and Lily-Rose Depp,” stated StarStream Entertainment’s CEO Kim Leadford. “The timing couldn’t be more perfect as so many production companies are struggling to find content to fill a serious void in the market of female superheroes and antiheroes. And, it’s pretty exciting to have their dads making the film with them.”
15-year-old yoga-nuts Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie love their smart phones and hate their after school job at Manitoban convenience store Eh-2-Zed. But when an ancient evil rises from beneath Canada’s crust and threatens their big invitation to a Grade 12 party, the Colleens join forces with the legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe to fight for their lives with all seven Charkas, one Warrior Pose at a time. Depp, Depp the younger and Smith the younger are returning in the roles they created for Tusk.
