Unlike Steven Soderbergh, Kevin Smith seems to be taking his retirement plans seriously. The Clerks and Red State director claims that Hit Somebody, about the epic rise of a hockey player, will honestly be his last film.
Back in August, Kevin Smith decided that he would make two movies out of Hit Somebody. Today, though, that is no longer the case. As he is back to writing just one epic screenplay. He took to his Twitter account to announced this decision. Check out his comments below.
"Writing script two, but now gonna make one big movie instead."
Kevin Smith then went onto reveal that the film, which will hopefully begin shooting this June, will clock in at 150 minutes with credits. And that he hopes to debut Hit Somebody at Sundance 2013. He then made this statement.
"Makes more sense, anyway: the movie's about taking one, good shot."
Hit Somebody is in development and stars Nicholas Braun, Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano. The film is directed by Kevin Smith.
