Kevin Smith’s New Movie Will Star His and Johnny Depp’s Daughters as a Pair of Yoga-Obsessed Teenage Girl Superheroes
And Scott McCall from Teen Wolf will be there. I don't know what to say.
In case you couldn’t tell from the title, this new movie with Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith sounds pretty weird. To start: It’s called Yoga Hosers.
Via The Hollywood Reporter, Yoga 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 ([Johnny] Depp) to fight for their lives with, according to the producers, “all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time.”
So… OK then.
Smith, who is directing and writing the film, calls it his entry into the comic book movie genre. But, he explains, “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.”
It’ll be Smith’s follow-up to the horror film Tusk, premiering at this September’s Toronto Film Festival and about “a man [who is] captured by a maniac and tortured, physically and mentally, into becoming a walrus.” Don’t scoff—it happened to a friend of mine. The entire cast of Tusk, including Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment, will be in Yoga Hosers, as will new cast members Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Jason Mewes (of course), and Teen Wolf star Tyler Posey. The film will be the second part of Smith’s True North trilogy, which has “Canadian myths and culture” as its through line.
So, to recap: This is Johnny Depp, Johnny Depp’s daughter, and Kevin Smith’s daughter in a Canadian-themed horror film about teenage antiheroines who fight forces of elemental evil. Using yoga. And ray of sunshine Scott McCall will also be there.
I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t really know what to think about this. But according to THR principal photography starts this week, so hopefully we won’t have long to wait to see how it turns out. Until then, this will have to tide you over:
