A24 has announced a September 19, 2014 release for Kevin Smith’s Tusk, while also releasing a debut trailer at the San Diego Comic-Con.
Smith also released the first image (below) for the flick depicting the film’s antagonist (Justin Long) and protagonist (Michael Parks) in what looks to be an awkward conversation.
Bloody-Disgusting has a source that is confirming Depp’s involvement in “Tusk,” but you may not even realize that it truly is him.
Depp is said to be playing the role of Guy Lapointe and he’s got a very “thick accent” and he’s said to be “barely recognizable” when in character. Smith has said nothing about Depp being in the strange horror film, but all will know for sure when it hits theaters on Sept. 19, 2014.
Inspired by The Human Centipede, Tusk is about a man (Long) who is surgically turned into a walrus by a mysterious seafarer (Parks).
