Genesis Rodriguez joins Kevin Smith’s Tusk

Kevin Smith’s next film, the horror Tusk, seems to have landed its female lead with Variety reporting that Genesis Rodriguez is in final negotiations to join Justin Long (Jeepers Creepers) and Michael Parks (Red State) in the cast.

Former soap actress Rodriguez made her feature debut in 2012′s Man on a Ledge, and has since appeared in Casa de Mi Padre, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, The Last Stand, Identity Thief and the upcoming horror Hours.

Tusk will see Rodriguez as the girlfriend of Long’s character, a podcaster who finds himself the victim of a deranged serial killer (Parks) and his twisted games. The film is set to shoot next month, with Smith claiming he intends to premiere it at Sundance in January.

    a podcaster huh? It seems like Smith can’t write a movie without injecting himself in it somehow.
