I’m just going to assume that this story from The Wrap is a joke until I see the trailer:
Kevin Smith has announced a brand new movie titled “Helena Handbag” that will find ”mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus,” according to the filmmaker’s Facebook page.
The script, dated Dec. 30, 2013 and credited to Smith and longtime collaborator Scott Mosier, will be based on a story from the 52nd episode of Smith’s popular SModcast podcast titled “The (C)Rapture.”
Anyway, Smith says that the idea is, “kind of a nod to David Lynch’s unproduced ‘One Saliva Bubble’ screenplay, too — which was also about the end of the world and also carried a title that didn’t really prepare you for what the movie was about.” So I’m going to guess that Smith is quietly acknowledging that this will never happen.
Still … Jesus vs. mecha. I’d pay to see that.
