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.
