Kevin Smith answers some tweets about Red State

Oct. 15, 2010by: Niki Stephens

Want some more info on Kevin Smith's RED STATE?

Found via our boys over at AITH, Smith had another lengthy chit chat with fans on twitter. The questions on the film were rather impromptu.

The last thing we got from Smith was a still showing the back of Michael Parks' head.

I think it's really cool of Smith to share the details of his film with fans. Actually, he's really open to answering any questions. There's one in there somewhere about an ALIEN fleshlight...

Here are the deets on the film. First the questions asked by fans:

- "How graphic so far, violence-wise?" You won't forget our first kill. Guar-an-teed...

- "what's the expected runtime of RED STATE?" Feeling like 80 or 85 mins, when all's said & done.

- "im a non militant reg old christian, will RED STATE be insulting to me" Christ, no - s'just a horror flick. I swear...

- "are you filming in chronological order" Pretty much. We're at around 52 minutes right now, with 8 days left to shoot.

- "So it's a...Churchploitation?" More like Christploitation - a concept that, sadly, extends far beyond a dopey film genre..."

- "do you have a distributor for RED STATE?" Nah. Sundance in January, if possible. From there, we'll see the lay of the land."

- "Filming?" 10 days left. Editorially, I'm current w/what's shot - so at the wrap party, the crew can watch the entire flick.

- "Happy with RED STATE so far?" SO fucking happy. There's not a weak link in this bunch..."

- "doing a horror movie w/John Goodman?" His first day's tomorrow! We start him off by showing him the whole flick thus far.

Here's the stuff that Smith offered before the questions:

- "Act 2 is all about self-sufficiency: relying solely on one's own abilities to achieve & satisfy. No more intermediates; no more middle-men"

- "In the 70's, they made exploitation flicks about devil worship. We flip it on RED STATE - so it's an exploitation flick about angel worship."

- "Another quality RED STATE evenin'. Tonight, we badger Matt Jones. 45 mins of footage cut. We're halfway done. Parks & Leo & ALL crushing it."

Extra Tidbit: If you will be out and about in Los Angeles on the 25th, go be an extra for the film. It will be for the "funeral" scene. Check out this link and put in all your infos: RED STATE extras.

Sorry Kevin...

I just don't see this being any good especially considering that the Phelps clan are a bunch of softies. I should know, my friend Brick Stone and I have come at them on camera mock interview style. They really are a harmless bunch who just like to talk shit and hide behind the first amendment. So I find it hilarious that Smith is using them to base a horror movie from... I think comedy would be a much more ripe genre for the Phelps bunch. Oh, and they're actually very nice people when you talk

That's not to discredit their insanity... But I think Smith is completely off target on this one.

Sweet

I am looking forward to this. It is the first thing he has done since Clerks 2 that doesn't have the Apatow tards involved, or is written by some story challenged person that wants to make a buddy cop movie.

Smith is much better working with his peeps. & the fact that he is starting get more serisou. Makes me think of the turn Woody Allen made in the 70's from slapstick to a more mix of dramedy.

I'm not looking forward to this one. Smith can barely do comedy, how is he going to do horror?

Go Team Smith!

I've been following all things Kevin Smith the last few years (with the help of his many honest and self-deprecating podcasts) and I am really hoping he pulls out a winner with this one. He's been unabashed in broadcasting his past failures and successes. He's got all the right ingredients for Red State, I'm just hoping it's tastes as delicious as it sounds. Go Smith Go!
