After much back and forth, Kevin Smith is donning the trench coat and backwards cap to...not say anything for the JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT, which began filming today. Produced by Saban Films, Smith reteams with his foul-mouthed bud Jay, once again played by Jason Mewes, as they attempt to stop a reboot of the Bluntman and Chronic movie in a follow-up to their endeavor to stop the original from being made in JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK. Along the way, I expect we'll see many familiar faces (and maybe a monkey or two), especially if the day one appearance by Jason Lee as his MALLRATS character Brodie Bruce is any indication as they return to the mall in what looks like a comic book store with a sweet Stan Lee tribute going on. No chocolate-covered pretzels in sight, though, so it looks relatively safe.

Check out Smith's heartfelt (like, literally) post below.


One year ago today, I almost died. So today, I’m living it up on with @jaymewes and Jason Lee on Day 1 of my new flick @jayandsilentbob Reboot! Thanks to @saban_films and Universal for the loot to make this epic, @jordanmonsanto and @destrofilms for making it happen, @jenschwalbach and @harleyquinnsmith for humoring my goofy bullshit one more time, and #jasonmewes for standing beside me all these years while I do the hardest thing I can personally ever do, either in film or in real life: simply shut the fuck up. I couldn’t think of a better scene with which to start the shoot than the return to the Mall with Brodie Bruce. The three of us gathered for a couple hours last night to run the lines and realized we first rehearsed together waaaaay back in the mid-90’s. It may be 24 years later and we may have 6 kids between us, but Jay, Lee and me partied like it was 1995, giggling while adding jokes and finding inflections. The Oscars were on in the background during our practice and I couldn’t help but feel relief when the “In Memoriam” montage ended and I wasn’t in it. We picked 2/25 as the Reboot start date *intentionally*, to celebrate the fact that I did not become Silent Bob forever 365 days ago. But after a blissful couple hours of making pretend with my friends on the set of my 14th film, I’m starting to think I *did* die in that operating room after all. Because what could be more Heavenly than this? #KevinSmith #jayandsilentbob #jayandsilentbobreboot #jasonlee #jaymewes #neworleans #brodiebruce #wwambassador #movie

Look, I know that many are bored to death of Jay and Silent Bob, but, well, I'm not one of them. While I certainly haven't fallen in love with every Kevin Smith movie since CLERKS (which I still regard an absolute classic), I appreciate his drive to keep doing what he does, whether we like it or not, and I happen to really enjoy the characters of Jay and Silent Bob. In the end, these guys make me laugh and we need some fun, raunchy juvenile comedy every now and again. I'm happy to get it from these guys. But, hey, I'm just one guy, what do you guys think?

Will you be turning out for the JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT? What guest stars do you want to see pop up?
