Director Kevin Smith’s has opted to cast a female lead for his walrus horror, Tusk. Genesis Rodriguez (The Last Stand, Man on a Ledge) is in final talks for the role. We know very little about the film apart from that the “story follows a podcaster who sets out to interview an eccentric, reclusive old seafarer, only to find himself a plaything in the gruesome plot of a deranged killer.”
Smith has written and will direct the film, and so far it has been confirmed that Justin Long (Die Hard 4.0, Drag me to Hell) and Michael Parks (Kill Bill, Django Unchained) will star in the film.
The film is expected to play at next years Sundance Film Festival, and filming will commence in November.
