Insight Editions have released details of a new film book titled ‘Kevin Smith’s Secret Stash: The Definitive Visual History‘ which will of-course explore the life and career of film-maker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Chasing Amy, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back).
Writer/director Kevin Smith has today confirmed he has completed the first draft for his new script for ‘Clerks III‘. This is a new version of the script after a previous version from six years ago was scrapped due to a variety of casting issues. Smith announced in October 2019 that he was working on a new script as well as announcing lead actor Jeff Anderson (Randal) was back on-board.
MOOBY’S, the fictional restaurant from Kevin Smith’s movies, finally comes to life!
The restaurant was trialed earlier in the year as a delivery/pick-up only service due to Covid-19 however the organisers have now announced it will be open as a physical pop-up experience from next week.
‘Mooby the Golden Calf’ is a fictional children’s television character created by writer/director Kevin Smith which is the figurehead of a fictional fast food chain that is featured throughout the View Askewniverse, most notably in the films Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks II and more recently appeared again in 2019’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.
Fans have long discussed the idea of Moobys becoming a real life restaurant – and last night during a live YouTube Q+A Smith confirmed that they would be opening a pop up in LA 4.19-4.25 (previously 4.20-4.25). Due to the Covid19 outbreak this will initially be a delivery only service via PostMates in the local LA area but they hope to open doors to the public later this year.
