We told you before Comic-Con that casting was about to begin on Kevin Smith’s first foray into the world of horror, and now we’ve got the first names of the unlucky few who look to be heading to the Red State.
According to The Wrap Dermot Mulroney, Melissa Leo, Kyle Gallner, Michael Angarano and Steven Root are all in talks to co-star in Kevin Smith’s political horror film Red State, joining the previously announced Michael Parks.
Red State is said to be inspired by a true case of terrifying extremism taking place in Topeka, Kansas. Specifically the Westboro Baptist Church.
Those who follow the news closely may be aware of the church, which is run by a man named Fred Phelps. He and his followers believe that homosexuality is the root cause of almost every single problem in American history. Ironic that it’s really only in America that such a person would be able to freely express his admittedly idiotic and close-minded viewpoint and gain national attention because of it.
Production will begin on September 22nd.
