Kevin Smith to Auction Off ‘Red State’ on Ebay?

Since the very first word, director Kevin Smith has “planned” quite unordinary steps in getting his political horror flick Red State made. While his intentions were quirky, it sounds as if this were your average indie Hollywood (I know that’s an oxymoron) production. Now that the film is in the can, Smith tells /Film of yet another oddball idea – assuming his film will be accepted into Sundance. “Here’s something that’s not so much news as my stated intentions for RED STATE: if it gets into Sundance, my plan is to pick the RED STATE distributor right there – IN THE ROOM – auction style,” he tells the site via e-mail. “Might even bring up a professional auctioneer to make it fun and unintelligible. And if you’re a multi-millionaire who can’t make it to the first screening of RED STATE, fear not: maybe we’ll set up an eBay page for the post-screening bid-calling as well.” The real question is: what will the starting bid be? What if it sucks? Can I bid $1? Is there a reserve? What’s the by it now option? ROFL.
