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").

The timing was especially compelling, as the January post arrived just one month before the five-year anniversary of the film’s first announcement.

Set moustaches to curled Based on the beloved novels by Kyril Bonfiglioli - namely Don't Point That Thing At Me, After You With A Pistol, Something Nasty In The Woodshed and The Great Moustache Mystery - Johnny Depp's latest is a right royal romp of the highest order, with Depp playing an anarchic aristocratic art dealer named Charlie Mortdecai, and Paul Bettany his valet, Jock.
