Jay And Silent Bob Reboot Begins Production, Kevin Smith Shares Photo With Jay And Brody

If you can believe it, it’s been a full year since Kevin Smith had his heart attack. It landed the filmmaker and podcaster in the hospital and set him on course for a full lifestyle change — a vegan lifestyle change. The man now seemingly lives healthier than 95% of those in America and has shed the pounds to prove it. His resurgence in health has also led him to going back to the well at least once more time with the film Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, a sequel to the 2001 film.

That film has been a long time in the making, and now Smith is confirming that the movie has officially started production. The filmmaker took to social media to celebrate with a photo. In said photo is him along with actor and friends Jason Mewes and Jason Lee, reprising their roles as Jay and Brody, respectively. Although Lee played two characters in the View Askewniverse, it’s clear based on his attire and the water cup that the one he’s playing on set today is none other than Brody.

“One year ago today, I almost died. So today, I’m living it up on with @jaymewes and @jasonlee on Day 1 of my new flick @jayandsilentbob Reboot! Big thanks to @saban_films and Universal for the loot to make this epic, @jordanmonsanto and @destrofilms for making it happen, @jenschwalbach and @harleyquinnsmith for humoring my goofy bullshit one more time, and #jasonmewes for standing beside me all these years while I do the hardest thing I can personally ever do, either in film or in real life: simply shut the f**k up. I couldn’t think of a better scene with which to start the shoot than the return to the Mall with Brodie Bruce. The three of us gathered for a couple hours last night to run the lines and realized we first rehearsed together waaaaay back in the mid-90’s. It may be 24 years later and we may have 6 kids between us, but Jay, Lee and me partied like it was 1995, giggling while adding jokes and finding inflections. The Oscars were on in the background during our practice and I couldn’t help but feel relief when the “In Memoriam” montage ended and I wasn’t in it. We picked 2/25 as the Reboot start date *intentionally*, to celebrate the fact that I did not become Silent Bob forever 365 days ago. But after a blissful couple hours of making pretend with my friends on the set of my 14th film, I’m starting to think I *did* die in that operating room after all. Because what could be more Heavenly than this?”


While Smith has been pretty hit-and-miss his whole career, I know I’ll still be checking this out when it hits theaters. I worry that the follow-up will be a bit too “winky” at the audience in terms of its fan service, but I guess you don’t really go into this movie without expecting that to some extent.
