Kevin Smith Unleashes Rapture Through ‘Helena Handbag’

Despite threatening to retire from filmmaking, it appears Kevin Smith isn’t done behind the camera quite yet. The Red State director, currently at work on the horror film Tusk, has announced yet another new project: Helena Handbag, inspired by an episode of his SModcast podcast called “The (C)Rapture.”

In Helena HandBag, Smith and frequent collaborator Scott Mosier have written a story that sees “mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus.” Sounds about right, coming from the guy who gave approximately zero genitals to naked angel Alan Rickman in Dogma.

Helena Handbag is “a ways off,” according to Smith’s announcement. After Tusk, the director plans to start shooting Clerks III, with May 2014 being eyed for the start of production.

    Hee Hee Hee… As a fan of SModcast from the very beginning and a fan of kevin Smith for a decade, i’m so happy to see Smith entering this phase of his career. The only thing i look forward to more than the flick, is the internet’s reaction to a director doing something they’ve been demanding he do for years, and no doubt bitching about it regardless.
