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

https://scontent-lga3-1.xx.fbcdn.net...a2&oe=5940F520

This is not a drill! This is an actual image from my laptop! Yes, Kids - @jayandsilentbob are coming back! Here's the story: Sadly, Clerks III can't happen (one of our four leads opted out of the flick). So I worked on a #Mallrats movie instead... which also didn't happen because it turned into a #Mallrats series. I've pitched said sequel series to 6 different networks only to find no takers thus far. Mind you, I'm not complaining: nobody gets to make EVERYTHING they wanna make in this business (do they?). And I've been lucky to make anything at all, there's so much competition out there, so many much cooler ideas from fresh folks. And besides: I had #comicbookmen and then @tuskthemovie and @yogahosers (which all came together so crazy quickly), and the podcasts and #fatmanonbatman. With all of that, how could I bitch about no Clerks III or Mallrats 2? Then when I started directing @thecw shows, it was such a slice of Heaven on Earth, I happily put my Askewniverse sequels to the side. Since I sold #Clerks and #Mallrats years ago, they're owned by others, which limits my moves with my own material. I don't mind: back in the day, all I ever wanted to do was sell my stuff so I could be in the movie biz in the first place. So I don't own Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy or #Dogma... But I DO own #jayandsilentbob. So while I love playing with someone else's new toys on @cwtheflash and @Supergirl, I'm getting eager to play with my old toys again in the inter-connected View Askewniverse I spent the first half of my career creating. And so all last month, I had the time of my life laughing while writing "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" - a fun flick in which the Jersey boys have to go back to Hollywood to stop a brand new reboot of the old "Bluntman & Chronic Movie" they hated so much. It's a tongue-in-cheek, silly-ass satire that pokes fun at the movie business's recent re-do obsession, featuring an all-star cast of cameos and familiar faces! And I already met with the good folks at Miramax and they're into it, so I'm hoping we'll be shooting in the summer! Never give up, kids. You CAN do anything you want in life, so long as you're patient and malleable. #KevinSmith
So Clerks 3 and Mallrats 2 are dead. Great... We'll see if this one actually happens.

Apparently, Jeff Anderson.

I think Kevin Smith is the one most excited by this announcement.

He was always my favorite. Thank you Jeff!

That said, I'm always game to try Smith's work, no matter how often he goes to the same well.

Of course it would be Jeff Anderson. Fucking, Randall.

I liked both Clerks films and really liked Jeff Anderson in both. I wonder why he opted out.

He literally lived in a retirement community for old people and made allusions that he would only do a film in the future if the script was right.

Not interested.

So he went back to being an asshole in real life.

Or the script wasn't right and he Bill Murray'd them.

I know J&SBSB has it's detractors but I love it. Just a light hearted, silly movie with a crap ton of cameos and in-jokes.

That being said, Smith has been on the same trajectory as M. Night with his last string of flicks. He's due for something good... or at least something to harken back to the early work.

interesting, he was close to not doing Clerk 2 as well, but was really happy with the film and the reception it got. I wonder why he opted out of 3.

Jeff Anderson seems a little like Randal in real life. An unhappy go nowhere kind of guy.

I loved Clerks 2. It hit close to home in many ways for some of our old high school friends drifting apart and/or coming closer together. I'd really like to see a Clerks 3.

Same for me. Disappointed that it isn't happening.

I also love Clerks 2.

But this reboot can work. J&SBSB really worked for me, so hopefully they can deliver again with this new movie.

This could be pretty good or an epic disaster. I really want to see scenes from the Bluntman and Chronic reboot where it's overly dark and grim. :lol:

Affleck should be da bomb in this, yo!

At one of his speaking gigs, a LONG time ago, Smith said he had the script for "Jay and Silent Bob go to Space" almost complete: "Me and Jay go to NASA, we see a button that says 'launch' but I think it's 'lunch' so I press it. We'll use the grappling hook. Make some jokes about getting fucked in the ass. Credits."

That would have been cool. Fine ass astronauts and shit, too. :hump:

Well I actually remember enjoying a lot of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (Cockknocker Mark Hamil was hilarious), but I do also remember it having some cringe worthy parts (Willl Farrell and Judd Nelson and the monkey scene). So let's see.

As for Mallrats 2 and Clerks 3 not happening, well the last time I rewatched Mallrats it was awful. Almost unwatchable, and this is a movie that I remember loving at one pint in time. I liked parts of Clerks 2, but that main guy (not Jeff Anderson) is a horrible actor and he comes across as an irritating twat. Also, Smith sticking his ugly talentless wife into most of his projects pisses me off. Pay a decent actress for gods sake. I also like the Smashing Pumpkins song 1979, yet I hate the scene it's used in this movie with dickhead driving his car with it playing.

Given Cassidy is your profile pic, I'm not sure which way it's funnier to read this.

He saw Yoga Hosers.

I did appreciate Yoga Hosers for being unconventional. It really is nothing you'd see anywhere else. For better or worse. True low-budget indie filmmaking. Something I'd expect from Troma.

Looking forward to the serious and grounded Marvel-like Bluntman & Chronic update. :lol: The parody could write itself.

Agree, if for nothing else so I can read about people pissing and moaning about it and Kevin because they have no life.
