This shouldn’t be a drill! This is an precise picture from my laptop computer! Yes, Kids – @jayandsilentbob are coming again! Here’s the story: Sadly, Clerks III can’t occur (certainly one of our 4 leads opted out of the flick). So I labored on a #Mallrats film as a substitute… which additionally didn’t occur as a result of it became a #Mallrats sequence. I’ve pitched stated sequel sequence to six totally different networks solely to search out no takers to this point. Mind you, I’m not complaining: no one will get to make EVERYTHING they wanna make on this enterprise (do they?). And I’ve been fortunate to make something in any respect, there’s a lot competitors on the market, so many a lot cooler concepts from contemporary people. And in addition to: I had #comicbookmen after which @tuskthemovie and @yogahosers (which all got here collectively so loopy rapidly), and the podcasts and #fatmanonbatman. With all of that, how may I bitch about no Clerks III or Mallrats 2? Then once I began directing @thecw reveals, it was such a slice of Heaven on Earth, I fortunately put my Askewniverse sequels to the aspect. Since I offered #Clerks and #Mallrats years in the past, they’re owned by others, which limits my strikes with my very own materials. I don’t thoughts: again within the day, all I ever wished to do was promote my stuff so I may very well be within the film biz within the first place. So I don’t personal Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy or #Dogma… But I DO personal #jayandsilentbob. So whereas I like enjoying with another person’s new toys on @cwtheflash and @Supergirl, I’m getting desirous to play with my outdated toys once more within the inter-connected View Askewniverse I spent the primary half of my profession creating. And so all final month, I had the time of my life laughing whereas writing “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” – a enjoyable flick by which the Jersey boys have to return to Hollywood to cease a model new reboot of the outdated “Bluntman & Chronic Movie” they hated a lot. It’s a tongue-in-cheek, silly-ass satire that pokes enjoyable on the film enterprise’s current re-do obsession, that includes an all-star forged of cameos and acquainted faces! And I already met with the nice people at Miramax and so they’re into it, so I’m hoping we’ll be taking pictures in the summertime! Never surrender, youngsters. You CAN do something you need in life, as long as you’re affected person and malleable. #KevinSmith
