Too bad Mallrats 2 isn't happening. I feel like Jason Lee probably really needs the work.

After the one two punch of Tusk / Yoga Hosers I'm not sure that I'll ever watch another one of his films. Even despite my immense adoration for Jay / Silent Bob.

Nah. He does a bunch of voice work, tv and neverending Chipmunk movies. He may not make much I want to watch but it doesn't seem like he has any problems getting work.

I thought they were both pretty good. But you got to look at them like you're watching a Troma or Roger Corman movie. They're not '$50M indie' movies (from someone like Coen Bros). They're true low-budget indie movies, made on shoestring budgets, almost zero marketing, and were made for their niche audience.

Considering what happened with Clerks 3 and Mallrats 2... I won't believe this until I actually see cameras rolling.

I moved the previous heart attack discussion to a new thread: https://forum.dvdtalk.com/movie-talk...rt-attack.html

I hope this gets made. The first wasn't great, but it had some entertaining parts.

And, yeah, I enjoyed Clerks 2. Rosario was quite sexy in it.

Saban Films has picked up the North American rights to Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, the sequel to the 2001 comedy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

Jason Mewes and Smith are returning to their title roles, alongside a number of other stars from the original Miramax release as well as new faces. Saban Films will release the pic theatrically and production is currently underway.

Jay (Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) were first introduced 25 years ago in Smith’s directorial debut, Clerks, and continued to appear in Smith’s cinematic canon including Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks II, as well as the animated film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. The new movie will take jabs at reboots, remakes, and sequels while simultaneously being all three at the same time.

Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “Jay and Silent Bob is a global franchise which has a very loyal fan base. Partnering with Kevin at script stage on the next chapter of these iconic characters is a huge milestone. This is the beginning of a new initiative at Saban Films, to partner on IP with seasoned filmmakers and talent early on in the creative process all the way through distribution.”

Smith said, “Last February, I almost died. So on the one year anniversary of my widow maker heart attack, as a celebration of life and a big ol’ F you to Death, my best friend and I will be rolling cameras on a sequel/remake/reboot of a movie we first made nearly twenty years ago! In Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back our herbal heroes found out Hollywood was making a movie based on them, so they journeyed out to Hollywood to stop it. But I’ve learned so much as a storyteller and have grown immensely as a filmmaker since then, so audiences can expect something completely different: In Jay & Silent Bob Reboot our herbal heroes find out Hollywood is making a reboot of the old movie that was based on them, so they journey out to Hollywood to stop it again. I offer my (literal) undying thanks to our amazing partners at Saban and Universal for making this dream come true and backing this cinematic silliness!”

Mewes said, “I’m tired of doing Shakespeare all the time so it’ll be nice to get back to playing Jay again. It may be 25 years since I first played the idiot man-child from Jersey but this time’s going to be the best because I’ve really grown into the role of idiot man-child in my old age.”

Bill Bromiley and Jonathan Saba negotiated the deal for Saban Films, with Jackie Eckhouse of Sloss Eckhouse LawCo on behalf of the filmmakers. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group acquired all foreign rights. Jordan Monsanto of Smodco is producing alongside Destro Film’s Liz Destro.

Equity Financing for the Picture has been provided by Hideout Pictures, Mickey Gooch Jr’s Skitbags Entertainment, and Fan Owned Legion M. Debt Financing for the film has been provided by Three Point Capital Louisiana and Intercut Capital.

I still can't believe so many studios passed on Mallrats 2 after he had some many of the actors on-board for the sequel.

It wasn't studios passing. Universal had to be involved no matter what. Universal TV told Smith to take it to networks or streaming and all of them passed. Which yes, is pretty unbelievable.

Yeah, that's what I meant. I know he went to at least Showtime and Netflix and I'm pretty sure he named a few others as well. None of those places had someone who grew up on those films willing to give him the green light? Just seems strange; especially for Netflix who has green-lit far worse under their banner.

Luckily, we'll get Mallrats characters. Brody will be in this.

The most obvious title of this movie is Jay & Silent Bob Will Not Be Rebooted.

Well, the synopsis sounds good to me. I'm all for something in the veing of J&SBSB. Lots of cameos, in-jokes, etc. Sounds like a perfect way to recapture his Askewniverse mojo.

Me too, maybe its because its been a while now but i'd welcome a movie with Smith's humor again.

I saw him do stand up last year and he read a scene from this. It was really funny. I'm excited for it.

I thought for sure if Wet Hot American Summer could get TWO seperate seasons that Mallrats would be a shoo-in. With all the people who agreed to do it, I wonder if Affleck passed. Because if Affleck was on board, I can't see all the studios passing like they did.

re: Jay & Silent Bob Reboot (2019, D: Kevin Smith)

I don't think this will be a great film (I'm not sure Smith is capable of making one anymore), but I do think it will be one that actually turns a profit for him...and he hasn't done that for a while...so I'm actually more looking forward to what he decides to do AFTER this one - since he might have a few more options/have an easier time greenlighting an idea.

Anyone know if doing this movie means his much-bragged-about (but never revealed what the topic was) TV project is DOA? I haven't heard him mention it in several months.

I hope the Bluntman reboot is a straight tale on the MCU.

That at is all.

One of the reasons they're shooting this one in New Orleans (big Louisiana tax break) and most of the "stars" in this will be cameos of people working for scale and/or doing Smith a favor. So while I don't know the budget on this one, I can't imagine it's far north of $5-$6 million.
