UPDATE:
In a radio interview with 102.5 The Bone radio station Smith teased a Fall 2019 release.

I think we are out in the fall”


Filming starts next week (February 2019) on the long-awaited follow-up to Kevin Smith’s 2001 film Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. This is his first live-action return to his ‘View Askewniverse’ characters since 2006’s Clerks II. It follows failed attempts to produce a Mallrats TV Series and Clerks III. The film marks Smith’s return to film directing after surviving a heart attack last year.

The film follows a similar premise to the first film and has been described as ‘making fun of reboots, remakes and sequels’.

Better Slate Than Never! These are the front plates for the clappers that’ll mark the start of every take of @jayandsilentbob Reboot! The art is by storyboard (and Hit Somebody) artist @jeremysimser, and the Cinematographer who’ll be capturing it all is the hottest, wettest DP I could ask for, Mr. @dpronlevy! Today is the tech scout and tomorrow is the production meeting – the last two steps we take before rolling cameras. The first time I posted about #jayandsilentbobreboot on @instagram was way back on February 9, 2017. It’s been 2 years and a week since that post, during which time I almost died. But a week from today, we finally start rolling on Reboot. Never give up, Kids. Even when your heart wants to.
