Good news because Jay and Silent Bob will be returning

Snoochie boochies.

If you’ve ever seen An Evening with Kevin Smith then you’ll know Jason Mewes has been an integral part of the filmmaker’s career, both personally and professionally.

We’re acutely aware that not everyone is a fan of Smith’s films but there’s no denying the appeal of cult-classics like Clerks, Dogma, Mallrats and more.

In recent years, Smith has ventured into new territories as a director and the results have been mixed – Cop Out, Yoga Hosers and Tusk were woeful but Red State was very enjoyable – and we’re happy to say he’s returning with a new adventure based around his most famous characters, Jay and Silent Bob.

In a lengthy post to his Instagram page, Smith said that any plans for Clerks III have been put on the back-burner, but there’s good news because Jay and Silent Bob will be returning in a new adventure.

“Yes, kids Jay and Silent Bob 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 Mallratsseries”, he said.

Smith adds “Since I sold Clerks and Mallrats years ago, they’re owned by others, which limits my moves with my own material. So I don’t own Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy or Dogma,  but I do own Jay and Silent Bob.”

“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!”
