Johnny Depp Joins Daughter Lily-Rose in Kevin Smith's 'Yoga Hosers'

Yoga Hosers

It remains to be seen whether Kevin Smith's bizarre walrus horror-comedy Tusk is as fun as the trailer makes it seem, but whatever's going on in Smith's creative life right now, he certainly seems to be having a good time -- and he's already moving on Tusk's follow-up, the second chapter in what he's calling his True North trilogy (so named because, as the Hollywood Reporter points out, it's "steeped in Canadian myths and culture").

That film, titled Yoga Hosers, is building out its cast now -- and aside from the entire Tusk assemblage, which includes Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, and Genesis Rodriguez, that cast will also include Johnny Depp. Not a bad bit of star wattage, but Smith's stars are a pair of (relative) unknowns: Depp's daughter Lily-Rose and Smith's daughter Harley Quinn.

According to THR's synopsis, Hosers "centers on 15-year-old yoga nuts Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith), who have an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed. 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 a legendary man-hunter from Montreal named Guy Lapointe (Depp) to fight for their lives with, according to the producers, ‘all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time.’"

Smith is calling this his version of a comic-book movie, which is fitting, given how interconnected everything seems to be; in fact, both Depp and Smith appear in Tusk, as you can see briefly in the trailer. "People always ask me ‘Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?,'" he told THR. "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."
