Smith made headlines back in 2014 when he shared a tearful selfie from the ultra-secretive Star Wars: The Force Awakens set.
Kevin Smith has confirmed that Zack Snyder's cut of Justice League exists, and he wants Warner Bros to release it.
Pictured with his wife and daughter, he wore his trademark hockey shirt and backwards baseball cap, but looked stunningly trim, having lost a massive 32lbs.
Smith, 47, was rushed to hospital after falling ill following a stand-up comedy show at the Alex Theatre in Glendale, California.
The 90s cult comedy icons, played by Smith and Jason Mewes, are coming back to screens for the first time in over a decade.
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.
