Leaked Logline For Kevin Smith's Red State

As further proof that the movie is actually happening, Shock Till You Drop has just received the logline for Kevin Smith's upcoming, and pretty mysterious, horror pic Red State. It's far from a detailed plot synopsis (no spoiler warning necessary), but it does give us a better idea of what the film will be about:

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."

We still don't know a lot about the film, but Smith had previously announced that the production is scheduled to begin later this month, with a $20 million budget. Last month, Kevin also said via his Twitter, "God-willing, Sundance in Jan for RED STATE."

The film will star frequent Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez collaborator Michael Parks. Other actors rumored to appear include Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Dermot Mulroney, Michael Angarano and Steven Root.
