A new movie starring Johnny Depp and directed and written by Kevin Smith will be a family business for the two – their daughters will also star in the film.

Depp and his daughter Lily-Rose Depp will star in the movie “Yoga Hosers,” which will be directed and written by Smith, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Lily-Rose Depp and Smith’s daughter Harley Quinn Smith will play convenience store clerks who also love yoga and who must take on evil forces. Depp will portray a man-hunter who helps them.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the movie “Yoga” will be the second in a trilogy directed by Smith about the country of Canada and its legends. The first movie in what is known as the True North trilogy is titled “Tusk” and will debut at the Toronto Film Festival next month, then will be released in theaters on Sept. 19, according to Variety. Johnny Depp, Lily-Rose Depp, and Harley Quinn Smith will also appear in “Tusk,” according to the Guardian. Meanwhile, “Tusk” stars Justin Long and Haley Joel Osment, among others, will join the cast of “Yoga.” 

Actors joining the Depps and Smith in “Yoga” also include Natasha Lyonne of “Orange Is the New Black,” “Arrested Development” actor Tony Hale, and Adam Brody.

Smith is famously a comic book fan and said that this is his debut in the genre, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

“People always ask me 'Are you ever going to make a comic book movie?'" he said. "This is it — but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two 15-year-old girls." 

Meanwhile, Johnny Depp’s upcoming movies include the Stephen Sondheim musical “Into the Woods,” which will be released this December; the comedy “Mortdecai,” which will be released this coming February; and “Black Mass,” a biopic about criminal James “Whitey” Bulger that is scheduled to come out in September 2015.

Dear Reader,

About a year ago, I happened upon this statement about the Monitor in the Harvard Business Review – under the charming heading of “do things that don’t interest you”:

“Many things that end up” being meaningful, writes social scientist Joseph Grenny, “have come from conference workshops, articles, or online videos that began as a chore and ended with an insight. My work in Kenya, for example, was heavily influenced by a Christian Science Monitor article I had forced myself to read 10 years earlier. Sometimes, we call things ‘boring’ simply because they lie outside the box we are currently in.”

If you were to come up with a punchline to a joke about the Monitor, that would probably be it. We’re seen as being global, fair, insightful, and perhaps a bit too earnest. We’re the bran muffin of journalism.

But you know what? We change lives. And I’m going to argue that we change lives precisely because we force open that too-small box that most human beings think they live in.

The Monitor is a peculiar little publication that’s hard for the world to figure out. We’re run by a church, but we’re not only for church members and we’re not about converting people. We’re known as being fair even as the world becomes as polarized as at any time since the newspaper’s founding in 1908.

We have a mission beyond circulation, we want to bridge divides. We’re about kicking down the door of thought everywhere and saying, “You are bigger and more capable than you realize. And we can prove it.”

If you’re looking for bran muffin journalism, you can subscribe to the Monitor for $15. You’ll get the Monitor Weekly magazine, the Monitor Daily email, and unlimited access to CSMonitor.com.
