The “Twitter” Report: “Red State” Locked, “Hit” Has a Lead…
On “Red State”…
We’re picture locked on RED STATE. Running time: 97mins (w/credits). Sundance watches Monday. Contingency plan for a pass in place. #Ready
Via @itsthattroyguy “Any prospects on distro?” With a cast like ours & a $4mil budget? It’s a no-brainer purchase for any distrib OR studio.
@nosajdabeno “is the lack of time spent on RedState due to your lack of interest/excitement for the film?” Opposite: made the flick with all the unbridled need & desire of a high school virgin trying to fuck before his parents come home. Had 3yrs to prep; hit set, crushed.
Via @docERtrauma “What % of a film’s budget goes to talent vs operations?” In the coming weeks, I’ll publish our RED budget so you can see.
Via @swickster “depressed that’ll be at very least 6 months b4 Red State goes wide” Nah – six months from now, you’ll have seen RED STATE…
Via @solidpython “When do you unleash a RedState teaser upon the world” If we get into Sundance, I’ll put the teaser online. #FingersCrossed
On “Hit Somebody”…
Via @BluMeaning “Now that you’ve done horror, any other genres you want to try?” Sports. Wrote another 10 pages of HIT SOMEBODY last night.
Via @KevSaund “Can you say who it is?” My HIT SOMEBODY lead? Sure – we’ll talk about it on BABBLE-ON next wknd: http://smodcast.com/babbleon
Via @AdamAbbott “RedState had a short shoot time. Will #HitSomebody be the same?” I’d say it’ll take roughly double the time we did RED in.
Via @LouisPJr “Your first choice lead for Hit Somebody passed” Already had my new guy shortly thereafter. And he’s perfect. #SeeItAllWorksOut
Via @Psymin1 “Why not film in Michigan?” That’s where we’re shooting HIT SOMEBODY next fall, once @ThatDavidKlein is done on TRUE BLOOD.

And finally, this one didn’t really fit any of the above categories, but sounds quite interesting…
