Kevin Smith Finishes Comedy Script

“Clerks” writer/director Kevin Smith has just finished writing his next comedy feature.

He wrote on View Askew: “Finished a script a few minutes ago. The comedy. 146 pages. I’ll spend tomorrow taming it down to 120 pages or so. It’s really funny, really dirty, and really touching stuff. Granted, I’m biased.”

He adds “Now, onto Red State… well, not now. First I’m gonna sleep. Then, I’ll take some down-time to work on this current bad boy before launching into the Red State script.”

Rosario Dawson is his favourite to star in the $6-20 million comedy to be shot in Minnesota. Shoowing will happen back-to-back with his low budget horror film “Red State” starting sometime this winter.
