Kevin Smith Is Bringing Red State To Europe!

| Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness Blitz


Wow! He's pretty serious about doing his own thing with this one - and we really respect him for it!

After controversially buying the rights to distribute his new film, Red State, himself, Kevin Smith is now planning to push the sale of the director's foray into the horror genre onto foreign buyers!

He reportedly introduced a private screening to the European Film Market Thursday, and announced plans to expand upon what he's doing in the US - taking the movie around the country to select cities with Q&A appearances before its nationwide October 19th release - in countries worldwide!

He explained to potential buyers:

“(If) you guys pick it up, I will work with you. I can come over, we set up five or six key places, boom, sell those houses out, start people talking. Just fly me over. But case in point, I might not be allowed to fly on the plane sometimes, so you might have to boat me over. In the beginning, I was all heart and passion. These are made by someone who says I will kill or die to get a movie made. And after 10 years, I got pretty complacent and just made movies like other people would make. I used to make shit that nobody could make but me. I figure if I’m going out, I want to go out really fuckin’ strong. What you’re going to see is all passion and heart. Everything I put into this I put into the early flicks. I came back with a vengeance and put this together.”

Wow! Like we said earlier, this is a pretty ballsy move on his part!

But it seems as though he's really passionate about the project, so we hope his plan works out for him! And we imagine it will, if he's right about the quality of the movie!

We'd love to see Kevin Smith back to form with this one! It sounds as though it has a lot of potential!

Best of luck!

    im a movie goer i go to the movies i watch dvds im watching one now called "stone" robert diniro and edward norton , why would i want to go watch a movie that just seems like its not there not in the shops not on the big screens nation wide just some movie some guy is toting around all mouth . hes not sold me on why i should bother going out of the circle to see this flick. also most of the movies now are double genre like sci fi thriller or comic horror or something his is just horror is it even scary or just real dum ..
    Hes resting alot of this on the hope that people care enough to go out the circle but people dont care they dont have time to care . just my opinion good luck to him but if its not on the big screen when im ready to go i wont be seeing it

    Thoughts you ask? How about sharing some details on what the movie is even about Mr. "Queen of all Media!"

    of course you respect that you twat! But why, he's only doing his own thing because he's a douche. You see, he is making this statement to the critics telling everyone that critics have no right to tell me how to feel about a film. As if he's sticking up for the movie goer. Actually, he had no problem and loved the critics when he started in the business because they loved ALL of his films. Then he gets panned a couple times and all of the sudden critics are the devil. What a fat bag of shit.

    I love how he thinks that putting "a film by Kevin Smith" on the poster actually means something. Go back to Burger King tons of fun.

    I simply LOVE these Kevin Smith "gossip" items posted, uh, "religiously" once every week.

    Perez, how much would it cost me to "plant" a gossip item once a week to keep my name in the press?

    I'm sorry, I love his past fimls, but this one just looks to me like nothing more than a political left-wing propaganda film. Not a "horror" film at all. And that alone is the reason he's doing all this nonsense in the marketing. No one would want it otherwise. Sorry Kevin, go back to making actual movies.
