John Goodman cast in Kevin Smith horror movie

Posted on


Image Credit: Albert L. Ortega/PR PhotosKevin Smith’s Red State, which has been in the works for ages, finally started shooting this week, and it landed its biggest star, too: John Goodman. Red State is a relatively low-budget horror movie about a crazed fundamentalist preacher, based on Fred Phelps. The cast also includes Michael Angarano, Kyle Gallner, Melissa Leo, Nick Braun, and Anna Gunn.

As someone who saw King Ralph in the theater, twice, I suppose I qualify as a Goodman fangirl, and I like Kevin Smith’s low-budget movies more than his big-budget ones (give me Chasing Amy over Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back any day). Throw in horror fundamentalism, and consider my ticket pre-ordered. What about you, PopWatchers? Are you also Goodman completists?
