Yes it’s true. After years of talking about getting this film off the ground, and even tinkering with fan funding, someone with cash has stepped up to back Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’. His first foray into horror should be interesting, and it will be nice to see him back as writer and director. Unlike the critically bashed ‘Cop Out’.
Smith had this to tweet on the subject: “I talk about lots of stuff I wanna do that either happens years later or never happens at all. Happy to report RED STATE is not the latter. First draft was dated 9/5/07. Looks like we start shooting this July. Took nearly three years, but we’re finally gonna roll on RED.”
