When director Kevin Smith revealed at Sundance that he is self-distributing his horror movie Red State, he also announced that Hit Somebody will be his final movie as a director. Earlier today, Kevin Smith announced that he plans to bring back actors Ben Affleck and Matt Damon for cameo appearances in Hit Somebody. Here’s what he had to say about the actors portraying Boston hockey players in his movie.
“They’re all coming back. It’s like The Muppet Movie. You’ve got your core cast, and then a zillion cameos. It’s going to sum everything up. We’ll have a team in Boston, and who do you think I’m going to call? Both of those dudes.”
He even said that he would extend an offer to Bruce Willis, who starred in his movie Cop Out, to cameo in Hit Somebody.
“I’m not even ruling out Bruce Willis at this point. I’d duck, but I’d put a stick in Willis’ hand.”
Hit Somebody, which is based on the song by Warren Zevon, will center on a hockey enforcer who aspires to be more well-rounded player.
