Jay and Silent Bob Reboot TV Trailer: All Roads Lead Back to Hollywood
Kevin Smith is finally releasing Jay and Silent Bob Reboot this week. We now have a new clip and poster from the highly anticipated sequel. Not many people expected Smith to ever deliver on the promise of another Jay and Silent Bob movie, but after suffering a major heart attack in early 2018, the writer/director has been on a mission to get things done, and quickly. Smith was so excited to start working on the project that he even started the editing process on the weekends between shoots, which means everything was done fairly quickly and very efficiently.

The new Jay & Silent Bob spot shows off some previously seen footage, along with Avengers: Endgame star Chris Hemsworth, who stopped by for a cameo. He appears in the new footage right next to Iron Bob, which is Kevin Smith's tribute to Thor's good buddy Tony Stark. We even get to see

‘Clerks 3’: Kevin Smith Talks the Plot & the Life-Changing Event That Inspired It

It was just a week ago that Kevin Smith confirmed Clerks 3 was officially happening and now he's gifting us with even more information about the upcoming movie. It's been a hot, hot minute since 2006, when we last saw our favorite, straight-outta-New-Jersey employees, Dante (Brian O'Halloran) and Randal (Jeff Anderson) in Clerks II. Anderson and O'Halloran will be back for Clerks 3 in addition to Smith, who will return as Silent Bob, and Jason Mewes playing — who else? — Jay.

Kevin Smith Says the Story for Clerks 3 Will Be Inspired by His Heart Attack Experience

Kevin Smith recently announced that he is moving forward with Clerks 3 and that Jeff Anderson and Brian O'Halloran would be coming back to reprise their roles of Randal Graves and Dante Hicks.

He previously explained that this movie will conclude the saga. “It'll be a movie about how you're never too old to completely change your life. It'll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future. It'll be a movie that brings us back to the beginning - a return to the cradle of civilization in the great state of New Jersey.”

During a recent interview with The Wrap, Smith offered up some new details on the story saying that it will be inspired by his own experience of having a heart attack. The movie will revolve around Randal recovering from a heart attack. The filmmaker explains:

“Randal has a heart attack, decides that he came so close to death,

Harvey Weinstein Pitched Dogma 2 to Kevin Smith Days Before the Sex Scandal Broke
If not for the Harvey Weinstein scandal, we might have had a sequel to the Kevin Smith comedy Dogma. According to Smith himself in a new interview with Business Insider, the disgraced producer and former head of Miramax had called him just a matter of days before the news of the Weinstein scandal broke. In the call, Weinstein floated the idea of re-releasing Dogma on home video before then pitching Dogma 2 to the Smith. Although talks hadn't gotten serious and the pitch was just an idea at that point, Smith was open to making the sequel. Of course, when the scandal broke about a week later, Weinstein was out and his Dogma 2 pitch went right along with him. Here's how Smith describes the phone call.

"I said, 'Hey, how are you?' And he goes, 'You know, we have Dogma, I just realized, and we got to get it out there again.

Kevin Smith Announces Clerks 3 with Jeff Anderson Returning
It's back to Quick Stop for Kevin Smith, as the filmmaker has just announced his new plans to make Clerks 3. In a photo posted to his official Facebook account, Smith poses with Clerks co-stars Jason Mewes and Jeff Anderson, also revealing his intentions to finally develop the sequel. To be clear, Smith says he's begun writing an all-new screenplay for the third Clerks movie, meaning it won't be the same script he'd previously written when he tried to make the sequel in the past. Better yet, Smith confirms Anderson is finally on board to reprise the role of perennial service worker Randal Graves, meaning there shouldn't be any hold-ups for getting the movie made this time. From the post:

"3 Clerks! Thanks to the good folks at Leeloo Multiprops, I got to see Randal! Jeff Anderson, Jason Mewes, and I spent Saturday signing stuff and catching up, seeing so much movie

Kevin Smith Announces Clerks 3 is Moving Forward and Shares What It Will Be About

Kevin Smith has been working on Clerks 3 for some time now, but he didn’t think that it would happen. At one point the whole project fell apart when franchise star Jeff Anderson, who played Randal Graves, ended up dropping out. Smith didn’t want to make the movie without him because what would be the point.

A couple month ago, though, Smith started working on writing a new version of Clerks 3 and he was hoping this new script and story would convince Anderson to come back and star in it. Well, it looks like he managed to pull it off!

The filmmaker announced on Instagram that Clerks 3 is moving forward and that Anderson and co-star Brian O'Halloran are both on board. He also shared some information on what the film will be about. Here’s what he said:

Matt Damon Confirmed to Reprise Dogma Role in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

Matt Damon Confirmed to Reprise Dogma Role in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
Kevin Smith has confirmed who Matt Damon is playing in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, and it isn't Matt Damon. The filmmaker has been making all sorts of little reveals about his highly-anticipated sequel ever since (and leading up to) San Diego Comic-Con. His latest reveal is regarding Damon's character and the Good Will Hunting star will be reprising his role as Loki. Not the one from Thor: Ragnarok. Rather, the one he played in Smith's 1999 movie Dogma.

For those who perhaps don't recall, Dogma sees Matt Damon and Ben Affleck playing a pair of fallen angels named Loki and Bartleby. Affleck will be returning in the movie as well. However, he's going to be playing Holden McNeil, who audiences will recognize from Chasing Amy. So, Kevin Smith is revisiting many of his previous works in his follow-up to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Taking to Instagram, Smith posted

Kevin Smith is Writing a New Version of Clerks 3 and Wants Jeff Anderson to Return

Kevin Smith had already written a script for Clerks 3. He announced that he was working on the film back in 2017 and a few weeks before it was scheduled to shoot, the movie fell apart because franchise star Jeff Anderson, who played Randal Graves ended up dropping out.

Last year Smith said the film wouldn’t be happening in the foreseeable future, but it looks like that all changed! Smith has revealed that he is currently writing a new version of Clerks 3 and he’s hoping to convince Jeff Anderson to come back and star in it. After all, he can’t make Clerks 3 without him or co-star Brian O'Halloran.

After he was able to smooth things out with his old friend Ben Affleck, Smith is hoping he can do the same thing with Anderson. He’s hoping that this new version of the script that he’s working on will entice Anderson to return.

We've been waiting for more than a decade for the final entry in the trilogy and Smith is newly determined to make it happen, confirming he's going to write a new script for the long-awaited sequel.

The reveal came during the Q&a portion of the panel, which took place in Hall H at Sdcc. At one point, a fan predictably asked about Clerks 3.

It's been a long time since Kevin Smith decided to revisit his own cinematic universe, known as the View Askewniverse, which he started 25 years ago with Clerks.

Supergirl Star Melissa Benoist Is Chronic in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot
Supergirl star Melissa Benoist is going from playing one superhero to another, as she's been officially revealed as the new Chronic in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. After many fans had accurately predicted Benoist would be in the role, director Kevin Smith personally unveiled her casting with an image of her on set with himself and Jason Mewes. Recently, Smith challenged fans to guess which actors would play the new Bluntman and Chronic in the upcoming sequel, also revealing that Chronic would be gender-swapped this time. Given his work with Benoist with the DC shows on the CW, it's easy to see why many fans went with Benoist, though the identity of the new Bluntman remains a mystery at this time.

Or, to be more specific, he's shared a poster for the movie within his new movie, a reboot of the Bluntman and Chronic franchise. In this case, the reboot within the filmmaker's sequel comes with something of a twist, as the character of Chronic has been gender-swapped and is now being played by a female actress.

The image was shared by Kevin Smith on Instagram ahead of San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, where he'll debut the first trailer for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The Clerks director previously made it clear that this movie will be a commentary on the current reboot-heavy nature of Hollywood.

First Trailer for 'Madness in the Method' Film Directed by Jason Mewes

"Once you read the book, you can't unread it!" Cinedigm has unveiled the first official trailer for the film Madness in the Method, an autobiographical feature film starring and directed by Jason Mewes (aka Jay Mewes) - the actor best known as "Jay" from Kevin Smith's filmography. This stars Jason as himself, Jay, and is about his attempt at trying method acting in order to gain more respect for himself in Hollywood outside of his "Jay" role he's most known for. He discovers a secret method acting book, but slowly descends into madness. Kevin Smith also co-stars, and the full cast includes Gina Carano, Jaime Camil, Vinnie Jones, Danny Trejo, Mickey Gooch Jr., Brian O'Halloran, Teri Hatcher, as well as a brief cameo by Stan Lee (his very last!). The looks kooky and potentially fun, an amusing mockery of that Hollywood life. Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot Red Band Trailer Will Drop at Comic-Con
We're going to get our first proper look at Jay and Silent Bob Reboot in just a few weeks, as the trailer for Kevin Smith's latest is set to make its debut at San Diego Comic-Con.

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot Will Feature a Stan Lee Tribute

Jay & Silent Bob Reboot Will Feature a Stan Lee Tribute
Get some tissues ready, as Kevin Smith will include a tribute to the late Stan Lee in his upcoming movie Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. This will serve as Smith's return to his own cinematic universe, the View Askewniverse, which started with his debut movie Clerks back in the 90s, long before the Marvel Cinematic Universe made interconnectivity all the rage. Smith hasn't dipped into this well in more than a decade, which makes it special for his fans. Now, we know it's going to be special for Marvel fans as well.

Tragically, Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee passed away last year. He and Kevin Smith had worked together several times over the years, with Lee appearing in Mallrats. That particular role was immortalized via Lee's cameo in Captain Marvel. Beyond their professional relationship, the two had developed something of a friendship over the years and Smith was a lifelong fan of comics.
