Sound the Rapture: Kevin Smith Is Planning to Make Red State 2
While promoting "Clerks III" ahead of its DVD and Blu-ray release on December 6, 2022, Kevin Smith announced news of another sequel that he has in the works. During the Q&A portion of a "Clerks III" screening, Smith revealed that plans for "Red State 2" are in motion.
Smith shared his talks with "Red State" distributor Lionsgate, saying, "They were like, if we do this, would you do it again? And I was like, yeah, in a heartbeat. [...] It's just a story of crazy people with guns and s*** like that. As long as I could use John Goodman again. I could make a hundred f****** Red States. And I'm like, let's do it. So we're gonna make one."
The unholy nexus between religion and American politics has only grown riper for exploration since Smith's first "Red State" film 11 years ago. For moviegoers eager to see Smith stretch beyond his comedy sandbox, news of a "Red State" sequel surely qualifies as an interesting development.
