Justin Long - who leads the cast of the project - revealed in a recent interview that Depp has signed up for a small role, but this has yet to be officially confirmed by Smith.

Tusk follows a journalist (Long) who meets adventurer Mr Howe (Michael Parks), who has incredible tales and a fascination of walruses.

Long told the Long Island Newsday that he is working on Kevin Smith's film and that "Johnny Depp is in that one".

Depp is expected to play a French-Canadian inspector named Guy Lapointe, who investigates the strange case of a man trapped in a walrus.
