Master of brevity Kevin Smith has decided that it is simply not possible to cram Hit Somebody, the story of a fictional hockey player, into just one film. I mean, it was done with Slap Shot, Youngblood, Happy Gilmore, and The Cutting Edge, but think how much better those movies would have been if they were…two movies. I don’t have a calculator in front of me, but I think that would make the films 12X better at least.
Consequently, Kevin Smith, never one to argue with hard scientific data like the figures above, has decided to streeeeeeeetch out his hockey character study Hit Somebody into two films, one chronicling the protagonist’s childhood, and the other following his time spent playing pro hockey. It’s like Kill Bill, but with a lot more ten-minute conversations about jizz.
