Kevin Smith Interview on New Horror Flick 'Red State'
Monday, April 09, 2007 - reddit
The ever talented and always under appreciated Kevin Smith (imdb) has a new project in the works called Red State, a horror script of sorts though what it really is seems to be up for debate.
"To me there's all kinds of horror, and killing someone's not the absolute worst thing you could do to another human being," he said, "The death in a horror movie has always been the money shot in a very exploitative manner. Stabbing somebody and splashing blood all over them is the equivalent to some dude exploding over some broad's face.
This is why I love Kevin Smith, who else would take about film making that way, and it couldn't be any more true than that. Sadly this thing is in its early stages, in fact, he's still writing the script. In all likelihood if it goes into production, it'll be setup under The Wieinstein Company (the new Dimension) since Smith has a good professional relationship with them. Clerks II did alright at TWC and they could really use an infusion of success right now. Grindhouse is bombing and it isn't the only thing that stinks over there.
Rotten Tomatoes UK has the rest of this Kevin Smith interview excerpt up and they promise more to come, so hang in here hope that this one makes it to the screen, because dude, a Kevin Smith horror film? Rock on.
