Kevin Smith vuelve a prometer una secuela de sus películas antiguas

Ahora quiere hacer "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot", pero antes había prometido secuelas que quedaron en nada.

Primero prometió una Clerks III, pero todo se derrumbó una vez que no pudo conseguir el elenco. Luego buscó hacer una secuela de Mallrats, pero la idea quedó en nada cuando la idea desembocó en una serie que no ha atraído a ninguna cadena.

Ahora Kevin Smith aseguró que tiene el guión para una nueva película de Jay and Silent Bob, que finalmente sí puede concretar ya que posee los derechos de dichos personajes. En mi caso, el entusiasmo no es mucho por lo que ha sido su producción en los últimos años, que incluyó malas películas como Red State, la rareza de Tusk, la basura de Yoga Hosers y mucho llanto contra la crítica especializada.

Pero mientras su carrera se ha volcado de forma más exitosa a la televisión, dirigiendo capítulos para las series de The Flash y Supergirl, el director sostuvo que esta nueva película se llamará Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, apuntando contra la moda de los reinicios de Hollywood.

La idea será que los personajes de Smith y Jason Mewes busquen detener la realización de un reinicio de  Bluntman and Chronic, que es el cómic que inspiran en Chasing Amy y que posteriormente da pie a una película que intentan detener en Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back de 2001.

This is not a drill! This is an actual image from my laptop! Yes, Kids – @jayandsilentbob are coming back! Here's the story: Sadly, Clerks III can't happen (one of our four leads opted out of the flick). So I worked on a #Mallrats movie instead… which also didn't happen because it turned into a #Mallrats series. I've pitched said sequel series to 6 different networks only to find no takers thus far. Mind you, I'm not complaining: nobody gets to make EVERYTHING they wanna make in this business (do they?). And I've been lucky to make anything at all, there's so much competition out there, so many much cooler ideas from fresh folks. And besides: I had #comicbookmen and then @tuskthemovie and @yogahosers (which all came together so crazy quickly), and the podcasts and #fatmanonbatman. With all of that, how could I bitch about no Clerks III or Mallrats 2? Then when I started directing @thecw shows, it was such a slice of Heaven on Earth, I happily put my Askewniverse sequels to the side. Since I sold #Clerks and #Mallrats years ago, they're owned by others, which limits my moves with my own material. I don't mind: back in the day, all I ever wanted to do was sell my stuff so I could be in the movie biz in the first place. So I don't own Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy or #Dogma… But I DO own #jayandsilentbob. So while I love playing with someone else's new toys on @cwtheflash and @Supergirl, I'm getting eager to play with my old toys again in the inter-connected View Askewniverse I spent the first half of my career creating. And so all last month, I had the time of my life laughing while writing "Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" – a fun flick in which the Jersey boys have to go back to Hollywood to stop a brand new reboot of the old "Bluntman & Chronic Movie" they hated so much. It's a tongue-in-cheek, silly-ass satire that pokes fun at the movie business's recent re-do obsession, featuring an all-star cast of cameos and familiar faces! And I already met with the good folks at Miramax and they're into it, so I'm hoping we'll be shooting in the summer! Never give up, kids. You CAN do anything you want in life, so long as you're patient and malleable. #KevinSmith
