If you've been following that latest works of Kevin Smith, you know that he recently finished the script for "Clerks 3," but he is now waiting for the green light on that project. As he told MTV News at San Diego Comic-Con, that holding pattern doesn't agree with him and his work flow. That's why he decided to do something big with the waiting period.
"So I'm back in this weird period where I've hurried up, like 'Oh my God. It's all there. It's right there.' And you submit it, and now you have to wait there for somebody to say 'yes' or 'no,' " Smith told us. "I'm back to a gatekeeper place, which I can't stand, so rather than sit there and stare at the phone and wait for it to ring. I decided to start writing something else. I started writing this movie called 'Tusk.' "
"Tusk" began its life as a post of Gumtree, a UK-based Craigslist of sorts that finds people housing. A listening on the site went viral and wowed Smith, who recalled the post for us.
