Kevin Smith has a pile of unmade projects he’s been talking about for the last several years. One of those is Moose Jaws, a horror-comedy that was supposed to close-out his True North Trilogy, which started with Tusk and continued with Yoga Hosers. Smith hasn’t given up on Moose Jaws just yet, but he is ready to make some changes. At one point, Smith’s ever-present Jay and Silent Bob were meant to appear in the film, but now the filmmaker says he’s going through the script and removing all traces of the duo with the hopes of starting fresh.

Kevin Smith may have only just finished the first draft of the script for the forthcoming Mallrats sequel, but he’s already got one new cast member on board, and it’s someone he’s worked with pretty recently.
During a watch party double feature for Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot last night, writer/director Kevin Smith announced that Aparna Brielle, who plays one of the new girl gang members in the latter sequel, is already on board to star in Twilight of the Mallrats as the daughter of Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee).

Kevin Smith is already going back to his roots with a forthcoming sequel to the 1995 cult classic Mallrats, and he’s cooking up a whole new screenplay for Clerks 3 too. But that’s not the only dip back into the past of the View Askewniverse.

Writer/director Kevin Smith has definitely made the most of his time in quarantine. On top of his regular podcasts and partaking in a recent watch party of Mallrats, he’s been working on the script for a sequel to the 1995 cult classic that will bring back the whole gang. The movie is called Twilight of the Mallrats, and now that Smith has completed the first draft of the movie, he’s given fans a taste of what they can expect, and it sounds like maybe there’s not quite as much of a “happily ever after” as the end of the original movie seemed to indicate.

If you’re a Kevin Smith fan, then you probably already know about the fake fast food chain called Mooby’s. After first appearing in Dogma back in 1999, the restaurant was the primary setting for Clerks II, and it also appeared in both Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. But soon, you’ll be able to get food from Mooby’s yourself, and you can support a good cause too.
Today, Kevin Smith announced that he’s teaming up with Derek Berry and the team that brought the Saved By the Max and Good Burger pop-up restaurants to Los Angeles to create a Mooby’s pop-up restaurant inspired by his movies. However, you don’t have to wait for the place to open before you can enjoy some Mooby’s meals, because Smith is teaming up with Postmates to offer a preview run of food through delivery, all in support of No Us Without You, a fundraiser that provides food for families of undocumented restaurant workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Two years ago, Kevin Smith teased a mystery writing gig that would be the most “massive IP” the Clerks director had “ever been allowed to play with.” When Netflix announced that Smith was developing a Masters of the Universe animated series earlier this year, we all assumed that was the “massive” mystery gig that the writer-director was speaking of.
