#WalrusMaybe: Kevin Smith Reveals Possible Tusk Sequel Ideas

It's that time again where we finally have a piece of news that isn't about something getting delayed by the Covid-19 crisis. While everything else is slowly starting to reopen, studios are developing and looking into whatever they can make when things get back to normal again. Yep, these stories will keep happening as the world tries to return to normal. Right now, we are looking into a potential Tusk sequel. Yeah, it's the movie where the man got turned into a walrus. That old cliche.

During a Twitch stream with Jason Mewes this week, Kevin Smith talked about how Tusk came together as a movie and where it could go next in a potential Tusk 2

“I’m shocked we got away with Tusk  but I’ll be honest with you, I do have a story for Tusk 2,” Smith revealed. “The great Michael Parks, who played Howard Howe, the guy who turns Wallace into a Walrus, sadly passed away a couple of years ago. Amazing actor that I got to work with twice. But, in the ending of Tusk, if I wanted to be a commercial filmmaker which apparently I’ve never wanted to be, I would have ended the film when Guy La Pointe comes in and raises his shotgun and you’d just hear the walrus and we cut to black.” 

He continues:“There’s a version of Tusk 2 that you do where… you cut to the present, and somebody else gets sucked into the spider’s web. The house, you hear stories, and when you get to the house, the new Howard Howe is Wallace, who has gotten out of the walrus trappings and stuff and is obviously disturbed by his entire ordeal and is now doing it to others. So there’s a way to do Tusk 2 where Justin becomes Michael Parks’s character. Wallace becomes, sort of, the new Howard Howe. So yeah, that’s possible. Tusk 2 is possible. Obviously I’ve thought about it.”

Tusk was a passion project for Smith, born out of a routine on one of his podcasts. The film was fast tracked and released in 2014 by A24 to mixed reviews critically but audiences appreciated his willingness to exit his comfort zone. For the Tusk fans, these words offer them hope for more human-walrus shenanigans. For the Tusk haters, it could be worse. It could be Yoga Hosers 2.
