The wait for Kevin Smith’s third installment of the “True North Trilogy” might take a little longer than we expected. Smith is going a head with a new horror film, the first of another trilogy, one in the vein of Creepshow.
Smith has partnered with with Florida’s Ringling College of Art and Design for Killroy Was Here, Variety is reporting. The idea for the film came to Smith while doing a podcast.
The phrase “Killroy Was Here” was the subject of graffiti during World War II. The image of a bald man with a big nose peeking over walls was almost always present with the street art.

This is a monster movie in the sense of a classic morality tale,” Smith stated.”No one wants to see you spill the blood of innocents, but when someone crosses the line and goes bad, you get to make them pay in horrible ways, and the audience cheers. We wanted to make an anthology film in the vein of ‘Creepshow’. Killroy is like the Golem, the Boogeyman and the Grim reaper combined.”

Killroy executive producer and founder of Semkhor Productions David Shapiro promises a mix of both digital and practical effects.

Our goal is to help Ringling students and local residents gain the right kind of experience to become a top tier entertainment workforce with which to attract bigger and more complex productions to Sarasota.” Shapiro said.

Killroy Was Here was co-written by Andrew McElfresh who serves as a producer along with Tony Stopperan of Ringling, Joe Restaino, Nick Morgulis, and Jordan Monsanto.
Alphas star Azita Ghanizada and Fargo actor Ryan O’Nan of Fargo will have been cast in the lead roles in Killjoy Was Here.
