Kevin Smith reveals the ultimate fate of Silent Bob
I guess you'd have to consider this SPOILER territory if you don't want to know where and when you'll see Jay and Silent Bob up next, or even what's going to happen to them. So, if that's some sacred cow you don't want slaughtered in front of you at this juncture, you might want to look away and maybe occupy your time with something like this.
But if you don't care all that much or just feel like throwing caution to the wind, let's proceed...
The beloved stoner duo, played respectively by Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith, will have their next appearance in MOOSEJAWS, Smith's third leg of his weird Canadian trilogy. Following TUSK and YOGA HOSERS, MOOSE JAWS is exactly what you think it is going to be - "like JAWS, only with a moose," claims the filmmaker.
As for what their role is set to be, I'll let Smith lay out all the details.
I just finished writing the scene where — spoilers — Silent Bob gets eaten by the moose. That’s how he f*cking goes out!
Isn’t that fun? I was talking to Jay about Moose Jaws and I’m like, ‘I’m thinking about bringing us in as the Captain Quint character’. And he goes, ‘Yeah, but Quint gets killed!’ I was like, ‘One of us has to get eaten’. And he was like, ‘You. Not me’. I was like, ‘Why?’ And he was like, ‘Because I wanna be in other movies!’ Fair enough, dude.
So, rather than let him go out with dignity, he’ll be eaten by a f*cking moose.
Now whether or not this is going to turn out to be wholly true when the time comes to stick MOOSE JAWS in front of cameras is beyond me. Smith has made a number of promises he hasn't kept over the years - he's retiring, he'd done with View Askew movies, etc. - that I could easily see him changing his mind here, too. After all, the duo of Jay and Silent Bob has a strange cult-like following, and that dynamic only works with the two of them together. No one wants to see just Jay hanging around, doing his schtick, all by himself. It only kinda comes together if they're both there.
Then again, maybe killing them off will force Smith away from using them anymore, knowing that very idea to be true that you can't have one without the other. Besides, after the pair started wearing on audiences the more they were overexposed, doesn't one of them kinda deserve a gruesome death on-screen? You know, for JAY AND SILENT BOB'S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE and all?
