Kevin Smith's Yoga Hosers and Rob Zombie's 31 are among the nine films that will have their world premiere during the Midnight portion of the Sundance Film Festival, which runs January 21-31, 2016.

The oddly named Yoga Hosers marks the second film in the director's True North trilogy, following Tusk. As described by the Sundance fest (via Variety), "Colleen Collette and Colleen McKenzie are teenage besties from Winnipeg who love yoga and live on their smartphones. But when these sophomores get invited to a senior party by the school hottie, the Colleens accidentally uncover an ancient evil buried beneath their Canadian convenience store."

The Colleens are portrayed by Lily-Rose Depp and Harley Quinn Smith, the daughters of Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith. Depp himself appears in the film as Montreal man-hunter Guy LaPointe, a reprisal of his Tusk cameo, while many of the actors from that 2014 horror flick – Justin Long, Haley Joel Osment, Genesis Rodriguez and more – will play new roles in the spinoff. Moose Jaws, the third film in the True North trilogy and a movie described as "Jaws with a moose," is expected to begin shooting next year.

In addition to the True North trilogy, Smith also revealed this year that he's working on sequels to Mallratsdubbed MallBrats – as well as a third Clerks film.

Zombie's horror film 31 finds five friends kidnapped on the day before Halloween and held hostage at Murder World, where they must survive a gang of killer clowns. 31 is Zombie's first fiction film since his 2013 rock and roll horror flick The Lords of Salem.
