Kevin Smith has announced that Jay and Silent Bob will be returning in a new film, over twenty years since the iconic characters first appeared in the 1994 classic Clerks.
“16 years ago, #JayAndSilentBobStrikeBack was released in theaters,” he wrote on Twitter. “And this Fall, we shoot a follow-up flick called #JayAndSilentBobReboot!”.
The film is described as “a tongue-in-cheek, silly-ass satire that pokes fun at the movie business’s recent re-do obsession“, which suggests the film name Smith gave may be more than a mere working title.
The plot will follow the duo as they attempt to block a superhero film based on their own stoned characters: Bluntman and Chronic.
Smith has also promised “an all-star cats of cameos and familiar faces” but little else has been announced at this stage. No doubt, we’ll find out more soon.
