Lionsgate to help Kevin Smith distribute Red State
It looks like Lionsgate will be teaming with Kevin Smith's SModcast Pictures to distribute RED STATE.
Smith purchased theatrical rights to the film at Sundance by paying himself $20 at the end of a fake auction for buyers. After fifteen single-show engagements, Smith has made about $1 million dollars just touring the film around the country.
Here are the details on the deal: Lionsgate obtains rights to distribute the title on all packaged media, video on demand, subscription video on demand, electronic sell-through and TV in the US, while SModcast retains theatrical rights.
The film is due to release through several mediums by September with the DVD release coming at year's end.
Glad us common folk will get to see it now. I'm still very interested in Smith's take on the horror genre.
