Kevin Smith to make hockey movie
Kevin Smith is working on a new ice hockey movie, inspired by the novelty song Hit Somebody! (The Hockey Song).
The Clerks star revealed in an interview with his website View Askew Productions the film would be based on the Warren Zevon song about a Canadian farm-boy who dreams of stardom with a stick and a puck, but has no talent except he's good at hitting people.
Smith said: "I don't know if anybody's going to want to do the hockey movie, because name one hockey movie that people made money off of in its theatrical release - it's tough."
But he added: "When all is said and done, when that movie's done, I guarantee you it's gonna impact, it's gonna hit people, even if you don't like hockey it's gonna hit you in a very personal place.
"The movie I see in my head, and more than that the movie I feel in my heart, oh God, it's gonna be good."
