Star Wars Episode 9 set

Writer/director/podcaster Kevin Smith has visited J.J. AbramsStar Wars Episode 9 set, and he hated every second of it. “It was dumb,” Smith said of the set. “I looked around, shrugged my shoulders, and said, ‘This is the best you got?’ I interrupted J.J. in the middle of a take and just said, ‘Hey man, thanks for the invite, but this sucks. I’m outta here.'”

I’m kidding, of course. Smith, as rabid a Star Wars fan as you’ll ever find, brought back several tidbits from his travels to the film’s London set, and they’re all overwhelmingly positive – including how he witnessed a performance that drove him to tears. Watch him recount his visit in a video below.

Kevin Smith secret project

Kevin Smith has come a long way since his days as an indie auteur with his breakout hit Clerks. He’s become a movies, television comics, books and podcast maven; he’s created his own mini cinematic universe called The View Askewniverse; and he’s become a prolific geek guru, penning comic books and directing episodes of The Flash and Supergirl.

But he recently set the geek community afire with speculation over his big new mystery project. We know very little about it, except that it’s reportedly his biggest IP ever — leading to chatter that he could be directing a Marvel or Star Wars movie. But Smith recently revealed that it’s not a movie at all — it’s a TV show.

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 »
