Kevin Smith Protests The Religious Groups Protesting ‘Red State’

As we mentioned in our coverage of director Kevin Smith’s decision to purchase the rights to his own movie, Red State, at the Sundance Film Festival auction he held and distribute the movie himself, this man knows how to play the game…and he’s playing it intently.

A new video has made its way to the web of Smith joining some of his favorite people on the planet (second only to film press, perhaps): the protesters! If you’ve ever seen An Evening with Kevin Smith then you know he tells many hilarious stories from his career, including one about the vicious protesters that showed up to boycott his not-so-serious religious comedy, Dogma. So when Smith sets out to make a horror movie inspired by the truly evil Westboro Baptist Church’s infamous leader, Fred Phelps, you can expect that these people known for protesting the funerals of respected public figures and fallen U.S. soldiers would be out in force, signs in hands.

Instead of let this happen, Smith showed up with some hilarious signs of his own to protest the protesters and play their game. You can see the video by clicking on over to the other side now!

Kevin Smith Decides To Distribute ‘Red State’ Himself; Angers The “Masses”
space
The Movie God   |  @   |

Director Kevin Smith started a bit of a wildfire last night when his new horror movie, Red State, was set to be auctioned off at the Sundance Film Festival.

Instead of auctioning off the rights to the room full of buyers, Smith declared that he would be buying his own movie for $20, and self-distributing the movie himself. The decision and the way it played out was not looked upon with happy faces according to multiple reports, who say Smith wasted their time and made a mockery of what they do for a living.

Whether that’s the case or not, the reasoning behind Smith’s decision seems to be more of a statement. Instead of his movie — which went through many difficulties in getting made and looked like it might never even happen for a long while — being acquired by a studio and said studio spending millions on marketing it, Smith wanted to prove that he could do things his way without all the outlandish costs and still find success.

To compensate for the lack of studio backing and marketing expenses, Smith has unveiled a movie tour — a tour for his fans to show off Red State before it’s officially released on October 19, 2011.

You can read Kevin Smith’s “The Red Statement” and find out where this tour will travel by heading over to the other side now.

Must Watch: Preview Trailer For Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ Might Shock You

Since its existence first came to be known, Clerks, Mallrats, and Dogma director Kevin Smith‘s turn from comedy to horror, Red State, has been a popular topic.

At first, the script for the movie was said to be so incredibly messed up that no studios wanted anything to do with it, but eventually we found out that someone was willing to take a fitting leap of faith on it, and since then Smith has been setting his cast and filing the movie.

Now comes the very first trailer…of sorts. It’s really more of a preview — one step below a teaser trailer — but shows enough to be well worth your time. It’s not an understatement to say you’ll likely be shocked at how the movie looks. This is so insanely far from anything we’ve ever seen Kevin Smith do, you can’t help but want to see more, no matter what your feelings toward his other films may be.

Kevin Smith’s Horror Movie ‘Red State’ Adds John Goodman To Cast

Talks of a horror movie by director Kevin Smith have been present for a few years now, but financing seemed unlikely for the majority of that time.

Not too long ago, Smith announced that he had finally obtained backing on the film, titled Red State, and that it would be happening soon. Since then, casting has been going on with multiple names added. Today, another actor joined the film, and that actor is John Goodman.

The movie is said to be incredibly dark, being based loosely on Westboro Baptist Church pastor Fred Phelps and his extremist views on pretty much everything, including homosexuality. Not much is known about the plot, but that it will extract a hate-filled religious figure such as Phelps and implant him into a horror movie. If you Google Fred Phelps, you can read all about what he does and what his family and church stand for. You’re almost guaranteed to be infuriated. You can also see how much he looks like that creepy dude from Poltergeist II.

Geeks of Doom Invades WonderCon 2010

2010-04-12_kevin_smith_wonderconAfter a four-year hiatus, writer/director Kevin Smith made his triumphant return to WonderCon for his usual convention Q&A where anything goes.

And for Smith, usually that does mean anything, including how to work for his View Askew production company, why convenience store services won’t deliver to his California home, and a conversation he had with Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger that may have resulted in the state’s push to legalize marijuana.

If there was any newsworthy bits to the session, it was in response to a fan question about Smith’s upcoming film Red State, which has been described as very dark non traditional horror that only recently got greenlit by the studios. [READ: Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ Finally Greenlighted…]

Smith said Red State draws heavily from the 1975 horror film Race with the Devil, which is about two couples vacationing together in an R.V. from Texas to Colorado who are terrorized after they witness a murder during a Satanic ritual.

We went ahead and embedded Part 1 of the Q&A below, which contains the full description of Smith talking about Red State for any who want to get the full effect.

Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ Finally Greenlighted; ‘Hit Somebody’ To Come After

Phelps & Kane

Kevin Smith‘s Red State is a project that has been known for a while, but has never had any luck in moving forward as a movie. Smith is obviously best known for his work in comedy and he has also done some drama in titles like Chasing Amy and Jersey Girl, but Red State promised to be very dark and not at all easy to sell to a mass audience, making it unappealing to financiers.

For a while it looked as if Red State would never be made; Smith moved on to direct Zack and Miri Make A Porno and most recently, Cop Out. At present time, the director was getting ready for his hockey movie with Sean William Scott, Hit Somebody, but it looks like that will have to wait now. In a message posted on his Twitter account, Kevin Smith has confirmed that Red State finally has that green light it’s been seeking for so long.
