Early Plot Details for Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’

I can’t believe how long we’ve been talking about Kevin Smith’s Red State without truly knowing what it’s about. That changes today as we’ve scored a look at the official logline that sheds some light on the comedy director’s first genre project. “In the film a group of kids encounter a crazed preacher (based on Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church) who gives a whole new meaning to the term “extreme fundamentalism.” ” Thus far Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano, Steven Root, and character actor Michael Parks have all been attached to star. Shooting begins this August in Los Angeles.
