Kevin Smith's Hit Somebody to be a two parter


There are some stories that you just couldn't contain in one film. Epic tales that bridge massive worlds and themes. Now a new story comes along that cannot be confined to the running time of a single film. No, Kevin Smith's upcoming comedy about hockey, Hit Somebody, is just too large to even think about being one film the director revealed.

At a recent Red State screening, Smith said that the first film would be about the childhood of Buddy, a kid who dreams of one day scoring a goal in the NHL. The second film with then be about Buddy in the NHL. You can understand from this why it's a good thing Smith has ditched the studio system because there is no way in hell anyone exec would greenlight a four hour comedic NHL epic from a director whose movies haven't really been grossing that much money. This way he gets to make what he wants however he wants to -- for better or worse.

I'm sure all of Canada will turn out for both films, but what about all our non-Canadian readers? You interested?
