Kevin Smith Buys His Own Movie For $20 At Sundance

He's trying to make a point, people! Pay attention!

Last night, director Kevin Smith confused the lot who came to see his new horror flick, Red State, at Sundance when he announced he already bought the rights to the film himself and wouldn't be accepting any other offers.

For weeks, Kevin has been telling sources that he would be holding a post-screening auction for the rights to Red, but in the end, he ended keeping the goods all for himself. He told the crowd he paid himself $20 for the flick and he's planning on a Oct. 19th release. So, what's with the stunt? Kevin explained to the audience:

"What we need to prove is that anyone can release a movie. Indie film isn't dead, it just grew up. It is just indie film 2.0 now. In indie film 2.0, we don’t let them sell our movie, we sell our movie ourselves.”

Alrighty then. We sure hope you know what you are doing. If this makes money, they'll call you a visionary. If it doesn't, well, let's just say we hope you hang onto that $20!

    Haha… fail. Sounds like no one wanted the movie in the first place and this was his only option. The movie description sounds absolutely horrible.

    Blah Blah Blah, this windbag is irritating. First off, grown men don't wear jersey's, you look like an idiot. Secondly, another celeb teaching us pleebs about the real world. Go back to bitching that you don't get special treatment that you deserve on airplanes, douche.

    I cannot believe that John Goodman actually took a role in this movie. Come on John, surely you can score better roles in movies not done by Kevin Smith. This hippie needs to just take what money he has, and go live on some remote island far away from Hollywood.. and all of us. Be gone cry baby.. I SAID BE GONE!
