    Kevin Smith announces Jay and Silent Bob reboot plans

    Played by Smith and his longtime cohort Jason Mewes, drug-dealing duo Jay and Silent Bob were the one constant thread connecting Smith’s first five films: 1994’s ‘Clerks,’ 1995’s ‘Mallrats,’ 1997’s ‘Chasing Amy,’ 1999’s ‘Dogma,’ and 2001’s ‘Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.’ Whilst this last film was meant to close the book on Smith’s ‘Askewniverse’ (named for his production company of the time, View Askew), the characters later returned again in Smith’s 2006 film ‘Clerks II,’ plus little-seen 2013 animation ‘Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie’ from director Steve Stark. Whilst Smith has mainly focused on podcasting in recent years, in between making oddball indie movies ‘Tusk’ and ‘Yoga Hosers’ and directing episodes of TV’s ‘The Flash’ and ‘Supergirl,’ the writer-director has also been making efforts to return to his earlier days with plans for both a third ‘Clerks’ and a ‘Mallrats’ TV series.
