We previously reported back in October that Kevin Smith's long-awaited horror film Red State was moving forward and now the director has indicated that a shooting date has been determined. Smith revealed on his Twitter account that Red State will start shooting in July. Here are the tweets he posted earlier this morning.

I talk about lots of stuff I wanna do that either happens years later or never happens at all. Happy to report Red State is not the latter.

First draft was dated 9/5/07. Looks like we start shooting this July. Took nearly three years, but we're finally gonna roll on Red.

Plot details on the film have not been released and no casting has been announced as of yet, but we'll likely be hearing a lot more about this film as it moves closer to its production date, so stay tuned.
