Kevin Smith On His Porno Career

He’s talked a bit about his upcoming horror film “Red State”, now “Clerks” helmer Kevin Smith has finally spilled the beans on his next comedy – “Zack and Miri Make a Porno” – to The Los Angeles Times.

Smith describes the film as “a bawdy sex comedy with heart” and the story as being “about two friends who have managed to trudge into their 30s with a satisfying lack of accomplishment. But a 15-year high school reunion and dire rent problems spark the novel moneymaking idea of pulling together an amateur porn enterprise.”

The idea, vaguely similar to last year’s “The Amateurs,” and Smith’s reputation was good enough for Harvey Weinstein who’s forking over a cool $15 million to finance the project.
