Kevin Smith confirms Tusk spin-off

Kevin Smith has confirmed his yet-to-be-released film Tusk will be getting a spin-off.
The writer and director's horror movie will be unveiled later this year, but Kevin told Screen Daily that he already has plans for a standalone movie focusing on two minor characters.
The film will be called Yoga-Hosers and shooting will start in the coming months.
"Like Tusk, [Yoga-Hosers] sprang out of a podcast," he explained.
"There are two characters in a convenience store in Tusk that you see for five minutes, very much Rosencrantz and Guildenstern.
"I've built a whole movie around them and I have brought one of the other characters from Tusk back."
Tusk was inspired by a real-life classified ad from a man asking for a roommate who would dress and act as a walrus, and follows a couple who make a horrific discovery when they search the backwoods of Canada after their friend goes missing.
It stars Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and Michael Parks.
