Kevin Smith launches Jay and Silent Bob reboot production diaries
Director Kevin Smith is offering fans an extensive look behind-the-scenes of the upcoming Jay and Silent Bob reboot in a new production diaries series on YouTube. The first installment, titled Road to Reboot: Chapter 1, follows Smith’s tech scout, going to every location for shooting the film. You can check out the video now below (via Slashfilm)!
Smith and Jason Mewes are reprising their title roles alongside other stars (and new faces) from the original film. Jay (Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) were first introduced 25 years ago in Smith’s directorial debut, Clerks, and continued to appear in Smith’s cinematic canon including Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Clerks II, as well as the animated film Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. The new movie will take jabs at reboots, remakes, and sequels while simultaneously being all three at the same time.
Saban Films is planning to release the sequel theatrically and production is currently underway. Universal Pictures Home Entertainment Content Group acquired all foreign rights to the movie. Jordan Monsanto of Smodco is producing alongside Liz Destro for Destro Film.
