Johnny Depp and Daughter Lily-Rose Tapped for Kevin Smith's 'Yoga Hosers'


Smith's daughter Harley Quinn Smith is also cast for the 'Tusk' follow-up which will center on two minor characters from the first film.

Kevin Smith's next project "Yoga Hosers", a follow-up to his upcoming horror flick "Tusk", has found its main cast members. Johnny Depp and his daughter Lily-Rose Depp are confirmed to star in the action adventure film. Smith's own daughter Harley Quinn Smith also plays a role in the movie.

"Tusk" cast like Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman and Harley Morenstein are back for the second pic. They are joined by new members such as Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler, Adam Brody, Tyler Posey and Jason Mewes.

"Yoga Hosers" will follow two minor characters from "Tusk" which is due September 19. The story written by Smith "sprang out of a podcast" like the first film which was inspired by an article he read on his podcast about a Gumtree ad where a man rents out his house for free if the lodger agrees to dress as a walrus. A third movie is expected to follow to complete his "True North Trilogy" which taps into Canadian myths and culture.

The second film will center on 15-year-old yoga nuts Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley), 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 (Depp) to fight for their lives with, according to the producers, "all seven Chakras, one Warrior Pose at a time."

"People always ask me 'Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?' " Smith said to The Hollywood Reporter. "This is it - but 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."

Smith previously wrote titles for Marvel and DC Comics. He also once wrote a script for a Superman movie that never came to fruition.
