Kevin Smith’s ‘Red State’ in a Bad State

While on hand at the Monster Mania convention in Connecticut, a B-D regular contacted us about a Q+A session that just ended with Jason Mewes, best known as Jay in Kevin Smith’s comedies. Mewes told the audience that the Weinstein Company has passed on Smith’s horror script Red State, adding that the project is on hold indefinitely as there are two movies already planned to go before State. I can’t say I was all that excited anyways for this horror film in which a group of misfits encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America.
