"I'm in a great position. I get to say what I want to say about growing up and moving on professionally, entering one's career -- in this case hockey. And be more brutally honest about it."
-- Kevin Smith
However, the award-winning filmmaker not only has dedicated himself to the game of hockey, he's announced that his final movie -- actually, movies -- will be hockey-themed.
Smith currently is working on the script for "Hit Somebody," which is based on the Warren Zevon song of the same name. The song tells the fictional story of Buddy McCracken, who dreams of scoring a goal in a game, but instead, is used by teams more for his fists.
Nicholas Braun, who recently starred in Smith's horror film "Red State," will play McCracken. Also appearing in the films will be renowned actors John Goodman, Michael Parks and Alan Rickman -- all of whom also have worked with Smith on previous projects.
