2019 is off to a good start for "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" fans.
The 2001 comedy's star, director, and screenwriter, Kevin Smith, kicked off the new year by announcing that his much-anticipated "Jay and Silent Bob" reboot is finally in "pre-pre-production." He tweeted a photo of himself with producer Jordan Monsanto, taken by his co-star Jason Mewes, and wrote that the three were "the only dopes in Hollywood working on the holiday."
Ah, how times have changed. Once they were asking, "What the f--k is the internet?," and now they're using it keep fans updated on the reboot's status.
Pre-pre-production is still very early in the game, but it's clear they're eager to make the film. Smith has been talking about a reboot since 2017, as People pointed out. In August of that year, he shared that he had written a script in which Jay (Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) had to return to Hollywood "to stop a brand new reboot of the old 'Bluntman & Chronic' movie they hated so much."
Smith has coined 2019 the "year of the reboot," so we expect more updates about the project in the coming months.
