Kevin Smith Refuses To Do Press For Red State

kevin smith wont talk to press about new movie

Looks like the sting is still there from his last movie.

After critics bashed Kevin Smith's action-comedy Cop Out, the director seems to have taken a serious aversion to the press, and he's refusing to do interviews to talk about his upcoming horror movie Red State.

Here's what he had to say about his decision on his Twitter page:

"I'm not press-junketing at all, anywhere. In fact, I'm not doing any press outside of maybe a business piece or 2 to help sell the flick if needed, & radio (LOTS of radio)."

In lieu of interviews, Smith will provide the world will all the deets on his upcoming movie via podcast.

More from Kevin about the podcast:

"It's INSANELY detailed, and by the time we're done, I'll have pre-answered all questions about RedState — thus negating the need to speak with me about it.

From nearly 20 yrs experience, I know this much: folks are gonna write WHATEVER they want, whether I sit down with them or not. So I'll just furnish all the information I'd normally serve up one at a time to a small, jaded audience that doesn't really give a s–t unless there's someone famous in the room, to a much larger, APPRECIATIVE audience that would actually enjoy & benefit from hearing the same information."

Inneresting concept, Kevin. Guess we'll see how it plays out.

Will U listen to Kevin Smith's Red State podcast?

    Everyone interested in Kevin Smith movies should tune in to his podcasts. He does an amazing job supporting his films and creating a fanbased informational forum.

    Maybe getting thrown off planes has something to do with it too.

    Have already been listening to the podcasts, they're great. As are all the pods from the smodcast.com network. Smith is talented and real, good for him for refusing to play the Hollywood game.

    Simple fact: There is NO WAY Obama is going to allow America to be deprived of Kevin Smith doing a press junket for "Red State". I think this is one thing BOTH the Republicans and Democrats can agree on!

    no one wants to SEE his disgustingly fat body on tv anyways…how can someone so rich who can afford the best chefs and trainers be so fat and unhealthy is beyond me…he looks like an idiot the way he dresses…totally deflates any thing he is trying to say….

    Somewhere along the line, Kevin smith became too "holywood" and very uptight. In the process, he stopped being a good filmmaker.

    LOL when was the last good movie he made? If the film sucks people are gonna say it sucks even if he tries to hide from the press. He's got a face suited to radio anyways.

    He has GOT to stop dressing like that! He wouldn't look so awful if he just dressed better.

    Who cares if he's fat or what he dresses like? Does that even matter, NO. He's a great writer and director. If he wasn't he wouldn't be where he is today. So stop bitchin' about him. And btw I can't wait to see Red State. :D
