Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is in Production

Sequel/reboot of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back has been discussed by Kevin Smith over the last year or two when Malrats 2 and Clerks 3 were both scrapped. Production has already begun and now there have been casting additions made over the past few days. Some of Smith’s View Askewniverse characters will be back including Dante Hicks (Brian O’Halloran) from Clerks and Bruce Bruce (Jason Lee) from Mallrats.

Some of the other people who have been added to the cast include.

  • Grant Gustin
  • Justin Long
  • Joe Mangianiello
  • Craig Robinson

Smith has also promised some other surprise cameos and there could definitely be more additions along the way. I’m cautiously excited for this movie because I love Kevin Smith movies, but its also been a while since he made a really solid movie. I’d say his last one was probably Zack and Miri Make a Porno.

Smith is also said to be working on his show Hollyweed and a new animated Howard the Duck tv series.

Here come da’ Judge! @jayandsilentbob had to go to court yesterday with a comedic legal dream team that included a pair of #zackandmirimakeaporno veterans! On the bench was the honorable @mrcraigrobinson, who fought frigid Pittsburgh winter weather with me a decade ago to make a Porno. Speaking of Penguins country, Pittsburgh’s own @deathsaves Dungeon master Mister @joemanganiello was our Bailiff (with producer @jordanmonsanto playing his twin). The creator, star and director of my favorite show, @sho_smilf (as well as my costar in the #hollyweed pilot) @frankieshawisag joined us as the Prosecutor! And for the Defense – my @tuskthemovie brother-in-sewn-up-arms, the genius @therealstephenblatt as the Lawyer (who sounds an awful lot like a Bobby Long-less Brandon St. Randy)! Reboot looks like my extended family scrap book, with cameos from folks I’ve worked with for years (and a few famous folks I’ve never met before but am looking forward to making pretend beside). And these fine folks flew all the way to #nola the day before #mardigras to fling funny around and make my movie better. And since I know what they got paid, I’m relatively sure they didn’t do it for the meager money. There’s a lot of love in this photo (which more resembles the key art for a “Night Court” reboot than the actual scene we shot yesterday). I appreciate that love and send it right back to my fellow thespians for making the cross-country Reboot-y Call! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #craigrobinson #justinlong #frankieshaw #joemanganiello #deathsaves #jayandsilentbobreboot #JayandSilentBob #JayandSilentBobStrikeBack #indiefilm #indiefilmmaking @dpronlevy @traceylandon @destrofilms @jaymewes @jayandsilentbob @jordanmonsanto @kylebonokaplan 📸 @saban_films @universalpictures @skitbags @hideoutpictures @legionmofficial
