Filmmaker and podcaster Kevin Smith has never been one to shut the door on potential sequels for his properties. He may not do it often, but given how much of a fan he is of his own characters, and how much of a thriving world he created with his early films, fans can’t help but wonder which ones he’d ever create. But about Dogma? Would he ever feel inclined to revisit Dogma, which was a film that addressed many problems within the Catholic religion?
Speaking at NYCC (via ComicBook.com), Smith emphatically rejected the notion, saying:
“F**k no, I don’t think we need a Dogma 2 and I am sure as sh!t not going near any religious movies at this point.”
We can definitely see where he’s coming from, and while it may seem a bit out of left field to question about Dogma, it’s not as though Smith has ever been averse to revisiting his beloved View Askewniverse.
He’s already revisited one franchise with Clerks II, and more recently he tried to get a Clerks III film off the ground before actor Jeff Anderson pulled out.
Similarly, he worked hard to get a Mallrats sequel film and then TV series going, but that too was met with a no, this time from Hollywood execs. The one film that is definitely going to get made, according to Smith is Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which will be another similarly tongue-in-cheek take on Hollywood.
