Earlier today, or earlier this afternoon Depending on what time zone your in. Mr. Kevin Smith announced on his social media accounts (In this case, His Instagram, @thatkevinsmith )
JAY and SILENT BOB are returning to the big screen in a sequal to “Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back” Here is the announcement in his own words..
All I can say to this is… SNOOOTCH!!!
It is a damn shame that Smith lost one of his leads for Clerks 3, and an even bigger shame Netflix hasn’t picked up The Mallrats Series! However, the fact that we are getting a long over-do sequal to ‘Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back’
The premise that Smith has layed for the film, sounds like classic Kev Smith! I cant wait to see what crazy fucked up fun and misadventures these guys are gonna have.
Smith himself has grown as a director since his foray into the, how can i say?.. Totally fucked up Genre with ‘TUSK’ and the absouloute joy that was ‘YOGAHOSERS’ Smith has indeed evolved. His current time spent on the small screen with Flash and Supergirl (respectively) has also increased his skills with a larger cast and more deeper and heartfelt storytelling.
Jay and Silent Bob have been away from the Big Screen for far too long. It will be interesting to see how Smith will age up the characters. It has been.. 16, 17 years since ‘Strike Back’, and another 11 years since ‘Clerks 2’. Fat Kev Smith ain’t so Fat no more. And Jay.. Well.. He’s got a kid now.. So, thats new. I cant wait to see where these guys are now.. Are they still hanging out in front of the quick stop? (probably. Most likely.) But it would still be funny as hell to see them still there. Or to just see some kind of difference would be cool too. Does Shannon Elizabeth’s ‘Justice’ Finally get out of prison?! Does she and Jay start a family? Does Bob finally get HIS moment!? Does he find that special Silent Barbra?!
So many questions! I cant wait. I am so happy and hyped with this news!
(SIDE NOTE: Why the Fuck isnt TUSK available on Netflix!?! and why the FUCK hasnt Netflix jumped on the MALLRATS series!?! The Dumb Fucks!)
So, until next time folks. Peace Out!
