After contemplating asking fans for the $20m start up costs, Kevin Smith has somehow locked financing for his horror film Red State, which he says will be begin shooting this July. “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.,” he writes on his Twitter account adding, “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.” Red State is a horror film in which a group of misfits encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America. Who is financing and producing is unknown.
