He's getting raunchy with Zack and Miri Make A Porno, and then political with Red State, but then Kevin Smith is planning on getting futuristic. The cult director has written a draft of a script for an unnamed space comedy about the relationship between a father and son, and the Weinstein Co. is interested in producing. It'll be Smith's most expensive film to date, says Smith: "The moment someone steps out of the spaceship, it's going to cost a little more." After flirting with scifi themes in his previous movies and scripting an unmade Superman film, Smith will finally be able to put his stamp on the genre. But will he be able to put his tangled relationships into a future culture that's believable enough to make us laugh? [Hollywood Reporter]
