“I tried with a text and Johnny Depp answered me back with a….yes”



Kevin Smith Kevin Smith 2     must be for sure a very funny man. Very talkative and chatting, in an interview with a journalist of SPINOFF he largely talked about his latest production, Tusk and the involvement in this low-budget production of Johnny Depp.

Friends from a life, their existences? Two different universes according to Kevin Smith.

Johnny Depp’s life projected in the Olymp of big and blockbusters movies from ten years at this part with all the asperities and joys that this condition bring with itself, Kevin Smith working with more tranquility on indie movies without spending too much but at the same time having a lot of fun.

The two have in common a long friendship. They met each other the first time when Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradise stayed most of their time to Los Angeles. Lily-Rose Melody Depp went to school with Kevin Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn.

A great friendship. Without any idea that one day maybe it would have meant work as well.

Tusk is a horror movie and the reviews,  very positive ones because of the originality of the thematics treated by Smith.

A work this one of Tusk born thanks to a podcast and realized, writing the script, once other people started to appreciate his story.

The movie told Kevin Smith was born firstly as a story after that he had read an article appeared online. Smith loves Canada so he thought that it would have been amazingly beauty to set up the story in that location.

Kevin Smith talking of the actors he loves so badly said to SPINOFF: ” The actors I love from now until the day I die? I’ll put them in anything, and I will always give them work because they were brave enough to say: yeah, it’s a very good and weird script.”

Talking of his career and the human changes  of becoming adults, Smith confessed to SPINOFF: “I ran out of personal shit to say. I stripped my personal life for the early movies, so I don’t have anything new. You’ve got like 20 years of experience in knowing how to doing the job. Maybe not well, but well enough to mount an entire production, but you don’t have the same anima that you used to have that made you go in the beginning“.

The new Smith wants to be a story-teller because he said: “I’ve got the ability to tell a story“. Conclusion: “Let me try to tell made-up story, the same kind I loved when I was a kid.” Horror ones the best to the director.

The journalist later wanted to discover much more about the involvement in these productions of Johnny Depp 003 40655894_l in the character of Guy Lapointe1781868_329887263851590_4311188045477345044_n  10653325_329887290518254_3996203004317432376_n  1606987_330300880476895_5860477699411973563_n   .

Kevin Smith has remarkable words for Johnny Depp considered by the director: “A lovely human being” In common the friendship of their daughters.

Smith describes what happened when he interacted with Johnny Depp: “We talked about movies, but we never went like we should work together because he works in a way different stratosphere“.

A stratosphere evidently not too much distant from the one of Kevin Smith.
In fact one day when the character of Guy Lapointe was written the director thought: “Depp would fall in love for this character. He would crush the fake Montreal, Quebec accent. All this would be amazing.”

Kevin Smith texted to Johnny Depp thinking, added Smith “Dude – hi. You know, I never wanted to be this guy, but I’m going to be this guy, man.

Smith revealed the text: “I’m making a movie, and boy, there’s a part you’d be great at. Before you turn your phone of, here’s the blog that I wrote about it ”. Depp answered back: “I love it“.

Thirty pages of dialogues for two days of work in California with Johnny Depp while the rest of movie was filmed in North Carolina.

He’s a great performer. We blew through like 30 pages of dialogue in two days. Now, he’s sitting in one place, so you’re not doing a lot of camera movement and stuff, but my Lord, it was fun” revealed Kevin Smith talking of the two work days with Johnny Depp.

Talking of Johnny he add: “He’s a genius. He does it all. Johnny Depp gave us the same performance he’d give when he is paid $20 million bucks. A $100 million performance in an under-budget movie He came to play, and he had such a good time“.

Kevin Smith remembers like a dream the instant before his text message reached Johnny Depp. And his personal thoughts.

They’re funny considerations. Smith thought: “Don’t be that guy. Everyone does this to him.

Later he thought: “You know what, man? He’ll say no. If he wants to say no, he’s such a class act, he’ll say no in a way that makes you think, he could have done it, but he just can’t because of his schedule. You’ll be able to see him again in public. It won’t be weird like that. I’m sure he gets asked all the time.

Johnny Depp called back him immediately saying: “I’ve always wanted to do a French Canadian accent – I have an internal dimmer, and I can dial it up or as low as you want!
