Talent must run in the family, because Johnny Depp’s daughter Lily-Rose has been cast in her first major role, starring opposite her dad. The fifteen-year-old actress will star in Kevin Smith's new film Yoga Hosers. And she’s not the only person who’s benefitted from a handy bit of nepotism, the film will co-star Kevin’s own daughter Harley Quinn Smith, also 15.

The teenagers are reportedly already friends, and will play a pair of Canadian yoga enthusiasts who are forced to fight for their lives when an evil force rises. Johnny will play Guy Lapointe, who is described as 'a legendary man-hunter from Montreal'. Talking about the film, Kevin has said: 'People always ask me "Are you ever going to make a comic book move?" This is it - but instead of yet another dude saving the day, our antiheroes are the most feared and formidable creatures man has ever encountered: two fifteen-year-old girls.'

It’s not Lily-Rose’s first time working with the director, she previously had a cameo in his film Tusks. Check out the trailer below:
