The inspiration for the film came during a joke segment on the 259th edition of Smith's SModcast podcast. Smith says it took six months from a joke on a podcast to filming Tusk.
Tusk will be in theaters Sept. 19. The film also stars Johnny Depp, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez, Michael Parks and Ralph Garman.
