Johnny Depp to Star in ‘Yoga Hosers’ With Daughter Lily-Rose Depp, Director Kevin Smith’s Daughter Harley Quinn Smith And ‘Tusk’ Cast

Johnny Depp will star in a comic book movie entitled "Yoga Hosers" to be directed by Kevin Smith, Hollywood Reporter reported.

Written by Smith, the story of "Yoga Hosers" revolves around 15-year-old yoga enthusiasts with an after-school job at a Manitoba convenience store called Eh-2-Zed.

The teens are named Colleen Collette to be played by Depp's daughter Lily-Rose Depp and Colleen McKenzie to be played by Smith's daughter Harley Quinn Smith.

"People always ask me, 'Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?' This is it. But instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls," said Smith who has written titles for Marvel and DC.

Along with the two teenage yoga enthusiasts, Depp's "Yoga Hosers" character Guy Lapointe and the characters of the convenience store clerks also appear in "Tusk," which is set to premiere on Sept. 19 at the Toronto Film Festival, Comic Book Movie reported.

At Comic Con, Smith said "Tusk" is the first installment of "The True North Trilogy" with stories about Canadian culture and myths, Slash Film reported.

Also starring in the second installment "Yoga Hosers" is the entire cast of "Tusk" including Haley Joel Osment, Michael Parks, Justin Long, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman and Harley Morenstein.

New members of the cast include Adam Brody, Tyler Posey, Tony Hale, Natasha Lyonne, Austin Butler and Jason Mewes.

In collaboration with Abolitta Productions, Invincible Pictures and Smith's SModcast Pictures, StarStream Entertainment will produce and finance "Yoga Hosers."

With Abolitta Productions' Tim Nye and XYZ Films' Nate Bolotin and Aram Terzakian, the film will be executive produced by StarStream's Charles Bonan and its CEO Kim Leadford.

"The timing couldn't be more perfect as so many production companies are struggling to find content to fill a serious void in the market of female superheroes and antiheroes. And it's pretty exciting to have their dads making the film with them," Leadford said.
