Will Kevin Smith's Detroit hockey film be a 'hit?'

Moviemaker extraordinaire Kevin Smith was on 101.1 WRIF-FM's "Drew and Mike" program Tuesday morning to discuss his new Detroit-based hockey film "Hit Somebody." The film, reportedly about a player with a penchant for fighting, is based on a song written by Mitch Albom, and rumored to be the legendary Gen-X filmmaker's final run.

According to MLive, Smith told the show hosts Detroit is the ideal place to film the movie because it hasn't changed much since the 1980s, near the time setting for the film.
Hearing Albom talk about the lyrics make me long for Bob Probert, who would make a good subject for a hockey biopic.

I hope for Smith and Detroit, the film can put both in a positive light once again.
