Yesterday, Kevin Smith revealed some details to SciFi about the space project he hopes to tackle after his horror film Red State. Smith was quoted as saying that he would be making a “science fiction superhero movie” based on “an original superhero” that he created.
“It’s stewing right now. I want to do it, though, and, God willing, it will star Seth Rogen.”
Some websites connected the dots to a project that Smith has been referring to for a few years as Ranger Danger. I contacted Smith to get clarification and here is what he said:
1. “I don’t think I’ve ever called it a ‘sci-fi superhero movie’; I’ve always referred it a ‘space comedy’.”
2. Smith also confirmed that the space film and Ranger Danger are two entirely different projects.
So there you have it. The only other detail we know is that at Comic Con he said that the film “will test [his] abilities as a visual filmmaker.”
