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 »

Jay and Silent Bob reboot rewrite

In 1994’s Clerks, writer/director Kevin Smith introduced the world to Silent Bob, an overweight and quiet goofball played by Smith himself. Silent Bob has appeared in multiple movies so far, often alongside a stoner named Jay (Jason Mewes), who would lovingly poke fun at his friend’s weight.

Smith experienced a near-fatal heart attack earlier this year and has thankfully bounced back, but he’s lost a ton of weight in the process – so Silent Bob is no longer the overweight guy he once was. This change has sparked a rewrite of his upcoming movie Jay and Silent Bob Reboot to reflect the character’s new look, and Smith has also changed the title of one of his popular podcasts for a similar reason. Learn more about both below. Read More »
