Although he is still working his way through post-production on the upcoming Bruce Willis-Tracey Morgan cop comedy A Couple Of Dicks as well as currently promoting his new book Shootin’ The Sh*t, Kevin Smith has found a little time to hint about his next film, the hockey comedy Hit Somebody. Late last week in a Twitter post, Smith hinted that former Star Trek: The Next Generation actor Wil Wheaton will be appearing in the film.
@ThatKevinSmith: Via @jpavleck “Mister Smith – your thoughts about Wil Wheaton?” @wilw is my hockey brother from another mother. He’s gonna HIT SOMEBODY.

Smith is a longtime hockey fan, including a scene in his debut film Clerks, where the employees of a convenience store close the shop down in the afternoon to play street hockey on its roof and staging a key dramatic scene between two characters in Chasing Amy at a hockey game. Hit Somebody is based on a Warren Zevon song co-written by Mitch Ablom, a will tell the story of Buddy, one team’s enforcer who dreams of getting a chance to score just one goal.
