Is Kevin Smith’s Red State on a Roll?

Shooting to finally begin

With Cop Out behind him, Kevin Smith is gearing up for his next film: The long-mooted horror film Red State.

“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,” he says via his Twitter account. “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.”

Smith told us in a previous interview that Red State “is definitely a 180 from everything else we’ve done including ‘Zack and Miri’ but at the same time, it’s not like a splatter film, it’s not like slasher balls-to-the-wall gore, it’s more unsettling and disturbing type of horror.”
