Plot For Kevin Smith's Horror Movie RED STATE is Revealed

The basic plot for Kevin Smith's first foray in to horror hath been revealed:

"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.'"

Given Smith's previous commentary on religion in DOGMA and homosexuality (the bane of Fred Phelps' existence and the apparent reason for all the world's problems) in CHASING AMY it will be interesting to see where RED STATE will go.

And now, Kevin Smith as a zombified inaction figure...

Shooting is slated to begin this month, with Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano, Steven Root, and Michael Parks attached to star.

About time Smith started doing something that was a bit more interesting.
