Comic Con: Scott Mosier Ditches Kevin Smith To Make His Own Action Movie
If youíve been following the career of indie director Kevin Smith, then you know that you can no longer call him an indie director. Heís recently started work on his first studio project, a buddy copy movie called A Couple of Dick starring Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan. Kevin is off trying new things and heís left behind his old familiars like longtime producer Scott Mosier while he tests his wings.
Thatís left Mosier, who produced all of Smithís previous movies, free to do his own thing as well. Today during Kevinís Comic Con panel Kevin Smith announced that Mosier's writing his first movie. If youíre thinking Clerks III, forget it. Smith says itís an action movie and ďnothing like a Kevin Smith movieĒ. Kevin, who of course has the inside track, says itís like The Bourne Identity but better. Actually I thought that movie had already been made, itís called The Bourne Supremacy.
The project is described by Kevin as as being an ambitious action film, which puts it as far away from Smith & Mosierís past work together, mostly talky character studies, as humanly possible. So if Mosier ends up directing does that mean theyíll switch roles and Kev will take on producing? Probably not. Kevin says he doesnít think heís the right man for the job.
