First Casting News for Kevin Smith’s Red State

ON

Shooting to begin soon

Kevin Smith, of Clerks, Chasing Amy and the recent Cop Out, is switching gears for a horror film entitled Red State.

The plot is unknown and Smith had a helluva time getting financing off the ground – the story is a reported button-pusher loosely inspired by the Westboro Baptist Church – but principal photography is starting very soon. Smith announced to Comic-Con attendees during a panel over the weekend the first actor to join the cast.

Michael Parks.

Parks is a cinema vet who leaped into pop culture territory when he was cast in Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn and has appeared in other Rodriguez/Tarantino productions.

Stay tuned for more updates as they come in.
