Kevin Smith to direct female-led action film 'Yoga Hosers'

August 19, 2014

Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp have teamed up on new action film Yoga Hosers.

Smith will direct Depp in the feature, with Smith's daughter, Harley Quinn Smith, and Depp's daughter, Lily-Rose Depp, as stars. The cast will also include Michael Parks, Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Ralph Garman, Jennifer Schwalbach and Harley Morenstein from Smith's movie Tusk.

Yoga Hosers follows Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith), 15-year-old yoga enthusiasts who work at the Eh-2-Zed convenience store in Manitoba. The teenagers team with legendary man-hunter Guy Lapointe (Johnny Depp) after an ancient evil rises and threatens the world.

"The timing couldn't have been 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," production company StarStream CEO Kim Leadford said in a statement. "It's pretty exciting to have their dads making the film with them."

Production on Yoga Hosers is scheduled to begin next week. Smith's latest movie, Tusk, will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
