Kevin Smith's final film 'Hit Somebody' will be a 2 part farewell?
Indeed, according to this Hour Montreal report from his recent Red State screening/Q and A:
During the Q&A portion of tonight’s Montreal stop of the Red Provinces Tour, Kevin Smith‘s Canadian series of screenings of his flick Red State, he dropped a juicy tidbit of information:
Hit Somebody, his next and final film, will be a two-parter. The filmmaker revealed that while writing his screenplay, which is based on the Mitch Albom-pennedWarren Zevon song about Buddy, a Canadian kid who dreams of becoming a hockey player even though he’s “not that good with a puck,” he realized that it was getting way too big to fit into one movie. He thought of turning it into a HBO series, but finally settled on doing a two-part film, à la Kill Bill.
From what he said, it seems like the split will happen when Buddy finally makes it into the NHL; the first part will mostly be about his youth in Canada.
-Joey's Two Cents: More on this as it develops, but from the bit of the script I've seen and the song it's based on...it's one epic project. Thoughts?
