Welcome to this week’s edition of The Digital Wire. Hope you all had a wonderful and scare-tastic Halloween because by the sound of the Christmas songs starting their yearly infection of the radio airwaves, an even more frightening time of year is upon us.

As a director Kevin Smith has distanced himself from the comedy movies he’s best known for, and has instead embraced much smaller budget independent projects as of late.
After his first indie effort, the very un-Smith-like horror flick Red State, he took some time off from features to focus on various other things he has going on. But lately he’s been quite busy. Smith just finished a second indie horror titled Tusk, which is set to premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival, and he’s already moving into his next movie, titled Yoga Hosers.
Now comes word that Johnny Depp will be appearing in the movie, which stars his daughter Lily-Rose Depp and Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith.
The first official trailer for the upcoming horror flick from writer and director Kevin Smith, titled Tusk, is here for all to see.
The movie follows a man (Justin Long) who goes missing in the backwoods of Canada while interviewing a mysterious gentleman (Michael Park) with promises of tales of the sea, leading his best friend and podcast co-host (Haley Joel Osment) to team up with his girlfriend (Genesis Rodriguez) to try to find him.
The Kevin Smith-directed horror movie Tusk is set to release later this year, and the experience making that movie went so well that he’s decided to hang on to his cast for his next project, titled Anti-Claus.
According to reports out of the Cannes Film Festival, Tusk stars Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, and Michael Parks will all continue hanging out with Smith for Anti-Claus, a Christmas horror movie following the mythical Krampus.
