Kevin Smith Shooting His Hockey Movie 'Hit Somebody' Soon?
You may remember hearing about Kevin Smith's upcoming hockey movie Hit Somebody once or twice before, as we've written about it a few times previously. Basically, Smith decided to adapt a Warren Zevon song called "Hit Somebody" into a hockey movie for one of his next features. When knew it was something he was working on coming up, but it sounds like it may be moving a lot quicker than we originally thought. A new video showed up on View Askew recently showing Smith and song writer Mitch Albom going around Joe Luis Arena in Detroit, home of the Red Wings, talking about hockey and shooting this movie up there.
The weird thing is that even though there's 10 minutes of footage, there was never a line in it spoken about shooting Hit Somebody this year. But a lot of websites, including Collider and The Playlist and Pajiba, are reporting this as news that Smith is, I guess, scouting locations (including Joe Luis Arena). He does say that "Hit Somebody makes sense" and that he'll "be spending a lot more time [at the arena] in the next year." I'm hoping that's the case, cause I'd love to see this movie. So if you're not looking forward to Kevin Smith's Cop Out, then it sounds like Hit Somebody may be ready in 2011, if all goes planned. Stay tuned for any updates.
