While it may still be Kevin Smith‘s last film as a director, as he has consistently stated to date, the formerly two-part hockey epic Hit Somebody will now be a single swan song for the independent filmmaker of Clerks, Chasing Amy and Red State. Smith casually dropped the bit of information into a conversation on Twitter.
When asked when he was going to start shooting, Smith casually replied “June, I’m thinking. Writing script two, but now gonna make one big movie instead”.
He went on to say “Makes more sense, anyway: the movie’s about taking one, good shot.” The running time would be a “max” of 150 minutes, adding that he is “more of an editor than director…”. Of course, it is early days yet.
He hopes to premiere the film at Sundance 2013.
