Kevin Smith confirms ‘Jay and Silent Bob’ Reboot

Kevin Smith confirms ‘Jay and Silent Bob’ Reboot

The one and only fanboy/fangirl-loved and critically-hated Director/Actor: Kevin Smith took to Instagram recently to confirm his completed script of the next Jay and Silent Bob film, simply titled: Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.  The film will apparently focus on the infamous duo of Smith and Jason Mewe’s trek back to Hollywood, where they will try and halt the production of a reboot of the Bluntman and Chronic film as featured in 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, also directed by Smith.  The Director has confirmed, like most his films, that the reboot will be a self referential, and star studded satire on Hollywood and its current obsession with big budget reboots and sequels.

As a self proclaimed Kevin Smith and Smodcast fanboy, I could not be more excited about this film, while also approaching it with cautious optimism.  This isn’t the first time that Smith has promised a sequel to one of his cut classics. Mall Rat’s 2 seemed ready to start production, but was ultimately scrapped.  The director has promised however, that will not be case here as previous project cancellations had to do with scheduling conflicts, and actor commitments.  Reportedly, Smith has already been in talks with Mirimax about distributing the film.

Another aspect that is halting my excitement a little bit is that this film seems like nothing more than a rehash of the original Jay and Silent Bob film which featured the duo traveling to Hollywood to halt the Bluntman and Chronic film, however knowing Smith’s brand of comedy the way I do, that could be exactly the point.  One thing is for sure, myself and many other Smith acolytes will gladly put $15 into the Directors hand and show me show me show me show if this film ever makes it to theaters.

I grew up in North Carolina, where my love for the Spiderman and Batman the Animated Series on Fox Kids fueled my journey of Geekdom. In January 2013 I started my own site: thepicreview.com and for over two years hosted my own podcast the Confirmed Epic Podcast. Since 2016 the podcast continues on the gww radio network. As of early 2015 I joined the geeks with wives crew for a greater opportunity to work with similar people who let the passion for the properties they love drive them, and a chance to interact with a world wide fan base of fellow geeks. I am a happily Married Geek, as of November 2014 to my Wife Abby who only shares my geek passions when it comes to Superman, Wonder Woman,the Flash, as well as Captain America. We live just outside of Charlotte, NC with our three dogs: a Golden Doodle: Sadie, our Jackabee: Penney, and our Beagle: Cookie. In April of 2018 we were blessed with our first child: Harper Jane Bell, who we named after Harper Row from Scott Snyder's Batman run. When I’m not covering or taking part in geek culture as The Reel Brad Bell my secret Identity is Mr. Bell a High School U.S History Teacher and AP Gov. Teacher. My Wife is an ICU/PICC/Charge Nurse. The only thing that comes close for my love of Superhero’s and Star Wars is my love for the Carolina Panthers! #KeepPounding Much to my Wife’s chagrin I am a self proclaimed poster addict and add a couple of Mondo Posters to my collection a year.
