Despite Kevin Smith’s recently becoming more of an off-putting curmudgeon than an actually talented filmmaker, both of his newest projects, the upcoming Sundance premiere RED STATE and the film’s follow-up, HIT SOMEBODY, sound more than amazing.

And now, according to the director, we have yet another reason to get excited for his upcoming hockey comedy, HIT SOMEBODY.

The director recently revealed on his Red State Of The Union podcast that actor Kyle Gallner will star (hat tip to Cinema Blend for the information) as a “Wayne Gretzky-like character, not actually Gretzky.” Count me in.

The film is based off of a Warren Zevon song, and will follow a hockey enforcer who looks to score one goal in a hockey game.” Personally, while Smith has kind of lost me as a fan as of late, RED STATE looks absolutely great, and Gallner’s addition to HIT SOMEBODY makes me really excited about this film. I’m a huge fan of the up-and-coming thespian, and think that this could, hopefully, be his true break-out role.

What do you think?
