Working On Kevin Smith's 'Red State' Made Almost The Whole Cast Want To 'Hit Somebody'
Based on the Warren Zevon song, Hit Somebody (The Hockey Song), the story is about an insanely passionate hockey player named Buddy who gets his chance play professional hockey for the World Hockey Association, but as an enforcer. The movie tells the story of a hockey enforcer who strives to score just one goal in a hockey game. The film adaptation will be set in the late 1970s right before the World Hockey Association was absorbed into the NHL, “during the last gasp of the goon era of hockey when it was all about fighting.”
It reminds me of this hilarious joke that I just made up: "I was watching a fight and out of nowhere a hockey game broke out!" Ha! Anyway, on Twitter, Kevin Smith revealed that Michael Parks and John Goodman will be playing Buddy's coaches at various points in his hockey career. He said some other stuff too but as usual I can't tell what the hell he's talking about. (via SlashFilm)
