Chris Hemsworth in Jay and SIlent Bob Reboot

Jay and Silent Bob Reboot finished production earlier this month, but that’s not stopping writer/director Kevin Smith from continuing to add names to the big roster of people stopping by the comedy sequel. The filmmaker took to Instagram over the weekend to reveal The Avengers franchise star Chris Hemsworth filmed some kind of small role for Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Plus, Kevin Smith has finished his first cut of the movie, and thankfully it’s nowhere near as long as Avengers: Endgame. Read More »

Ben Affleck in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

This month, Kevin Smith has been busy shooting Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. The film will act as a reboot/remake/sequel to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, but as we’ve seen in various set photo revelations and production diaries, this is also a way for Kevin Smith to revisit his old movies and friends from the View Askewniverse (including Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and Clerks II). But there’s been one face from Kevin Smith’s that everyone has assumed wouldn’t return.

Kevin Smith used to be great friends with Ben Affleck. The director even helped boost Affleck’s career as a leading man thanks to Chasing Amy. However, the last time they worked together was Clerks II in 2006, and over the years, Smith has made it clear that he and Affleck really weren’t friends anymore. However, it sounds like Affleck is open to burying the hatchet if there’s an opportunity. The only problem is it might be too late. Read More »

Kevin Smith Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

In Kevin Smith‘s breakout debut film Clerks, which launched an interconnected series of movies set in the “View Askewniverse,” one of the main characters worked at a video rental store. The movie was set in the mid-1990s, so that occupation made sense.

Now, 25 years later, Smith is filming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which is also set in that cinematic world – but today, video rental stores are no more. In the caption of a new set photo, Smith explains how he convinced Redbox to come in as a replacement and teases how his new movie features “one of the funniest sequences [he’s] ever shot.”

Clerks - Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

Kevin Smith‘s breakthrough indie comedy Clerks takes place entirely at two locations. One is the Quick Stop Groceries, where Dante (Brian O’Halloran) works, even when he isn’t supposed to be there that day. The other is RST Video, the video rental store where Randall (Jeff Anderson) wastes his day away. But it sounds like one of those locations is getting replaced in Kevin Smith’s forthcoming comedy sequel, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Read More »
