Kevin Smith made his annual appearance at the San Diego Comic Con this past weekend, and he brought along a new trailer for the film The Dirties. This is a Slamdance Grand Jury Prize winner (for Best Narrative Film) that will be released by Phase 4 and the Kevin Smith Movie Club.

The film, co-written and directed by Matt Johnson and starring Johnson and Owen Williams, is about a couple of high school kids that set out to make a film about giving bullies a taste of their own medicine.

Joel Schumacher has confirmed in an interview that Halle Berry is in talks to take the lead in the tentatively titled The Hive, about “a female emergency line operator who, in trying to help a young girl, comes up against a killer from her own past.” While nothing is official at this point, the director said, he and Berry are both interested in working together and the producers of The Hive seem to be on board with hiring her.

The thriller is expected to begin shooting in February, though Schumacher has said that he may shoot another, smaller film before that. Berry will next appear in Garry Marshall’s limp-looking ensemble romcom New Year’s Eve, and is currently shooting Cloud Atlas with directors Tom Tykwer, Andy Wachowski, and Lana Wachowski.
