Filming has begun on Kevin Smith's Red State starring Michael Parks, Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Michael Angarano, Stephen Root, John Goodman and Kevin Pollack. Last night Smith tweeted the following photo, the first from the film.
The picture is shot from behind the head the lead character, played by Michael Parks. The plot synopsis is as follows:
"A group of kids encounters a crazed preacher (based on Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church) who gives a whole new meaning to the term “extreme fundamentalism.”
Not much is known about the film at this time. I am excited to see a unique mix of horror with Kevin Smith's style. Are you looking forward to Red State?
