Kevin Smith To Pit Mankind Against Giant Rapturing Jesus In 'Helena Handbag'

Looks like Silent Bob is not ready to go gently into that good night just yet. Despite his proclamations of retirement from movie-making, Kevin Smith, currently at work on a horror film Tusk, is planning another project, entitled Helena Handbag.

Helena Handbag (get it? Say it slowly lol)," written by Smith and partner-in-crime Scott Mosier, spins a tale of “mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus.” Definitely sounds like this will be a religious comedy/satire in the vein of Smith's own Dogma or last year's Rapturepalooza. Hell and mankind joining forces to fight the Almighty? I'm in!

Before "Helena Handbag," which is a ways off, we can plan on Clerks III, which is slated to start production in May.
