First Look: Very First Twitter Photo of Kevin Smith's 'Red State'
Below you'll see the very first photo from Kevin Smith's Red State, which looks to be a shot from behind a piano at a church. It's not much, so don't start complaining because you expected to a face or something, but it is our first look. The photo came from one of Kevin Smith's tweets (via Very Aware) with the word: Amen. As a recap, Red State is Smith's original "political horror" film that just started shooting recently. The film is about a group of misfit kids who encounter a crazed preacher (based on Fred Phelps, founder of Westboro Baptist Church) who gives a whole new meaning to the term "extreme fundamentalism." Check it out below!
I'm actually curious to see more from this, it's a big departure for Smith and despite being a very low budget indie, it might turn out pretty damn good. The cast of Red State includes actors like John Goodman, Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano, Stephen Root, Kevin Pollak, Anna Gunn, Melissa Leo, Michael Parks and Haley Ramm. Smith is shooting now and actually hopes to have the film ready for an upcoming festival. "Lemme try to get it into Sundance or Cannes first, and we'll figure it out from there," Smith said in a tweet asking about if it will get a wide release. We'll let you know if Smith tweets out any other cool photos - stay tuned!

ohmygodholyshitthisisawesome.....i mean, just in the sense that its finally, actually happening, not the picture per se. Kudos to Smith, not all his movies are a slam-dunk and his cult following is a bit ridiculous, but the man found a way to get RS into production. Looking forward to hearing/seeing more on this.

I am interested to see what this turns out like, because Phelps is one evil bastard.
