Earlier this week Kevin Smith pounded the nail into the coffin of Ranger Danger, the sci-fi project he’s been teasing fans for the past few years. But it looks like it’s better news for Red State, the dark, and unconventional horror film about a religious fundamentalism.

Smith has had trouble getting funding for the film in the past. Studios like The Weinstein Company have passed on it, not because they don’t think it’s good, but because they didn’t think they could make a profit off of it. Now though it sounds like Kev may have what he needs to shoot his finished script. He tells Den of Geek, “I got a call at 2am last night. I think we’ve got the money for Red State.”

That doesn’t mean he’ll start production tomorrow. He’s currently working on his first studio film, a buddy cop movie with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan called A Couple of Dicks. He may not even get to Red State after that. Lately he’s been obsessed with making a hockey movie out of a Warren Zevon song called Hit Somebody. At least though, he has the money, if he ever gets around to it.
