Kevin Smith to Auction Off Distro Rights to Red State?
Kevin Smith has long been a filmmaker who does things his own way no matter how unconventional. With his new horror film Red State now completed, Smith has unveiled some pretty, shall we say, unusual plans to find distribution.
In a recent interview with /Film Smith revealed his plans for the Sundance Film Festival.
"Here’s something that’s not so much news as my stated intentions for RED STATE: if it gets into Sundance, my plan is to pick the RED STATE distributor right there – IN THE ROOM – auction style," he tells the site via e-mail. "Might even bring up a professional auctioneer to make it fun and unintelligible. And if you’re a multi-millionaire who can’t make it to the first screening of RED STATE, fear not: maybe we’ll set up an eBay page for the post-screening bid-calling as well."
Red State stars Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano, Steven Root, Michael Parks, and John Goodman. Be sure to keep up with Kevin Smith on Twitter for more!
