Three years after he first announced it, Kevin Smith is set to stock his Nikon
Smith has had a real battle getting the film up - The Weinstein's knocked it back, and furthermore, nobody else seemed very interested in bankrolling it. At one stage he even considered letting his fans finance it. But, seems someone with an actual vault's come to the party.
"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", Smith tweeted today. "Looks like we start shooting this July. Took nearly three years, but we're finally gonna roll on RED."
After "Red State", Smith shoots the hockey comedy "Hit Somebody" starring Seann William Scott (who stars in Smith's "Cop Out") and 80s icon Wil Wheaton ("Stand by Me","Star Trek: The Next Generation").
-I always like a talented artist trying something different (hey, I even liked Cop Out), so this is exciting to me...thoughts?
