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.
