Although the photo shows off exactly nothing besides the back of Abin Cooper (Michael Parks) the preacher in RED STATE. Kevin Smith tweeted this photo out a few minutes ago saying only Amen and linking to this photo:

So this is the first photo from RED STATE that we have seen, but I don’t even think you can consider it as anything more than just trying to get everyone excited. The movie is shooting right now and Smith is hoping to have it ready for Sundance 2011. We shall see. Here is the synopsis:

A group of kids encounters a crazed preacher (based on Fred Phelps, founder of the Westboro Baptist Church) who gives a whole new meaning to the term “extreme fundamentalism.”

So there you have it folks…I can’t fucking wait to see what he has in store for us!
