Smith off to space

10.17.2008

Kevin Smith's latest film, ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO, hasn't hit theaters yet and his next film, RED STATE, hasn't even begun filming yet but he's already looking forward to his next next film. Smith is mobilizing a sci-fi action/comedy with a $50 million budget that he would produce with longtime partner Scott Mosier. After making his first non-Weinstein film since MALLRATS on RED STATE, Smith is expected to return to the Weinstein Co. who have read the first draft of the script and are interested in making the movie. Smith wouldn't talk much about the film other than to say it would "reference other sci-fi movies" and would "explore a father and son" relationship. The $50 million budget for this film would double his ZACK AND MIRI budget, which came in at $25 million. Smith has made it clear in the past that this project is NOT the long-rumored RANGER DANGER AND THE DANGER RANGERS, which seems to be on the backburner. Smith is looking to start filming this spring on the indie thriller RED STATE. ZACK AND MIRI hits theaters on October 31st.

Kevin Smith is not overrated and I understand his appeal.

Now that that's out of the way, I will say that I like his Evening With Videos and Smodcasts better than his actual movies. Is that weird?

"Smith is mobilizing a sci-fi action/comedy with a $50 million budget"

He's rebooting Pluto Nash??

Yes, Mallrats wasn't made with the Weinsteins, and it shows, even though I STILL love that movie.

Also, Preston, I take it you've never seen Chasing Amy? If you had, then I dont think youd be making the comment you did about the acting in K Smith movies. That movie is top notch when it comes to the acting.

Porno seems to be good, but, Im still wary on it. I think I'll end up liking it though.

This one, Not sure yet, sounds like a Space Balls rip off or something... Need more info.

'Mallrats' was made at Paramount, not the Weinstein's.

As for Zack and Miri, I dug it. It was far from perfect, but I would say a very solid 7 outta 10.

I'm no fan of Smith's directing, so any news about his next project does nothing for me. I might go see his "Porno" film only becuase I think Seth Rogen's funny as hell.
Maybe Smith should just write projects and leave it to someone else to direct. Maybe then you'd get better performances from the actors involved in his films. Seems like no matter how much I like the actors in his movies their performances come off really self aware, like they're reading cue cards for each scene.

First off, Zack and Miri isn't the most expensive, Jersey Girl is, it cost 35 Million.

Second, to the guy below me, there have been nothing BUT positive reviews for Zack and Miri, from internet geeks who caught a screening all the way up to the likes of Roger Ebert.

Third, Kevin hasn't mentioned that he's started writing the script yet, so I dunno that the Weinstein Co. are on board...he may have written it, but considering how vocal he is about his films, I doubt he wouldn't have

Anyway, yeah, this looks to be awesome.

Nah . . .

Considering his size, I would say he is more like an ape . . . an obese ape.
