From The Wrap:
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.”
Smith said in his Facebook post that he’s “only ever gonna make a flick that only I would/could ever make … Granted, this time the plot of the movie concerns mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus — which means the budget has to be LOW, because NOBODY’S gonna wanna make that movie. At all.”
He described “Helena Handbag” as being “a ways off,” and that its title 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.”
