How exactly do you go about making a film in which one man attempts to turn another man into a walrus? That it is not a question any member of the human race ever considered for hundreds of thousands of years. Then writer, director, and semi-professional pothead Kevin Smith decided his next project, Tusk, would tackle that exact subject.
This hilarious, gruesome, and strangely haunting film is released September 19 and stars Justin Long, Michael Parks, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, and an uncredited but extremely famous movie star whose name we won’t reveal here. We can, however, give you a flavor of how exactly Smith and company went about making the movie in the exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette below.
For more on Tusk, tune in to Entertainment Weirdly on Entertainment Weekly‘s Sirius XM channel at 1 p.m. EST this Monday when the guests will include Justin Long.
