Ah, Twitter. You’ve certainly changed the news game, haven’t you? The truth is breaking news can be just a tweet away. Good thing you’ve got us here keeping an eye on things for you!
Over on Kevin Pollak’s Twitter page the actor posted the following response to a fan’s tweet:
“His offer still has that new car smell. How did you know…? RT @jose_marinjr Congrats on being cast in @ThatKevinSmith’s #REDSTATE”
Does that mean he’s been cast? If so, he’ll be joining the previously announced Michael Parks, Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano and Steven Root. Shooting begins this August in Los Angeles.
“In the film a group of kids encounter a crazed preacher (based on Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church) who gives a whole new meaning to the term ‘extreme fundamentalism.'”
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.
