Will the New York Jets Kill Kevin Smith's Chances to Sell Red State?
It looks like Kevin Smith might get sacked. (Nyuck, nyuck.) Deadline's Mike Fleming reports that a large number of potential Red State buyers are upset that the film screening on Sunday night conflicts with the AFC Championship game between the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers. Writes Fleming: "A lot of indie distribution executives hail from New York and New Jersey (as does Smith), and they've waited a long time to see the Jets get into a Super Bowl." Somewhere, Bob and Harvey Weinstein are nodding in agreement. [Deadline]
