Michael Parks News

Kevin Smith‘s Tusk is a prime example of a filmmaker in the midst of reinvention. Every since the disaster that was Cop Out, Smith has been on a quest to become a new director. First he shunned Hollywood and self-distributed Red State, a welcome departure from his off-the-wall comedies of the past. Now he’s delving deep into horror with Tusk, the story of a man named Howard (Michael Parks) who kidnaps a podcaster named Wallace (Justin Long) and attempts to turn him into a Walrus. Much like Smith’s up-and-down career path, Tusk has a fascinating trajectory.

JoBlo - Sat, 2014-09-06 15:31

Review: Tusk (TIFF 2014) PLOT: A popular podcaster (Justin Long) on assignment in Manitoba, falls prey to a former seafarer (Michael Parks) with a fondness for walruses.

'Tusk' Trailer Debuts, Makes Us Believe in Kevin Smith Again

Tusk
It's been a frightfully long time since Kevin Smith made a movie that made us feel like watching it again (or, in the case of dreck like Cop Out, even finishing the damn thing once), and on paper, it doesn't look like Tusk -- the story of a doofus podcaster who wanders into the Canadian wilderness and gets himself mixed up with a mad scientist who wants to turn him into a walrus -- stands a prayer of breaking that dismal streak.

Watch: First Trailer for Kevin Smith's Weird Walrus Movie 'Tusk' Walrus Yes! After hosting a panel at Comic-Con 2014 for Tusk, filmmaker Kevin Smith and A24 Films have debuted the trailer online for your viewing pleasure. Or distaste, perhaps. The movie is about a man, played by Michael Parks, who wants to make another human, played by Justin Long, into a walrus. Kind of like Human Centipede but with a weird, wacky, funny Kevin Smith twist. In addition to those two, the cast includes Genesis Rodriguez as his girlfriend, and Haley Joel Osment (yea, him!) as another friend, who go on the hunt for him when he goes missing.
