  • SPOILERS: Bluntman & Chronic Classic! @vanderjames and @biggsjason came back to play and it was bliss! Their scene in @jayandsilentbob Reboot was one of the first I wrote and I couldn’t wait to shoot it! But as fun as it was on the page, the boys took it to the stars when we rolled cameras! They were spitting comedic fire like they’d been working together for the last two decades - not just 1 time in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback 18 years ago. I can’t thank them enough for flying all the way down to #nola to make jokes about themselves, our old movie and our new movie too! And holy shit, they look like they were preserved in amber from 2001! The plot of #jayandsilentbobreboot takes #jayandsilentbob to Chronic Con - a pop culture convention centered around the campy old Bluntman and Chronic movie starring Biggs and Van Der Beek (the movie that’s getting a reboot). So for the last week, we’ve been in a fake version of a very familiar world! For 8 drafts, the event was called BluntCon - because I didn’t want to step on the toes of the funny flick by @youdontknowdoug. But in the 9th draft, I went for the more sensible (and alliterative) title. Can’t wait to show scenes from our faux con at this summer’s @comic_con! #KevinSmith #jasonbiggs #jamesvanderbeek #neworleans #bluntmanandchronic #sabanfilms

  • Oh, what a lovely tea party! The first person to sign on to @jayandsilentbob Reboot was @baderdiedrich, so I got to thank him yesterday for being our first official step on the road to reality! Reprising his role as the relentless Security Guard in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback, Diedrich is responsible for one of my absolute favorite days on a set, when he ad-libbed “And after it’s all over, you say ‘Oh, what a lovely tea party.” But the last time we worked together, Diedrich hadn’t done the amazing cartoon series #batmanthebraveandthebold - one of my favorite incarnations of #Batman ever presented. So when Diedrich returned to Reboot, you better believe the #hammersofjustice came out to play! This guy is so fucking talented, he does the dialogue you wrote and then sweetens it with way better bon mots! Even though we’re making a comedy, the schedule is so relentless, you rarely have time to enjoy what’s going on. But yesterday, I slowed down enough to enjoy making pretend with Diedrich again - and I got to laugh out loud! #KevinSmith #diedrichbader #jayandsilentbobreboot #neworleans #ohwhatalovelyteaparty #jayandsilentbob

  • You think I’d miss Missy? @jenschwalbach played one of the original Girl Gang in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback so when she shot her scene today in @jayandsilentbob Reboot, it was like returning royalty! Part of the fun of filmmaking for me is putting people I love in front of the camera. That way, the whole flick functions like a very expensive family photo album! And Jen is who I think of when I think of family - both in real life and in the movies too! Also: for those keeping count, this is the fourth Mooby’s fast food joint we’ve built for the #viewaskewniverse flicks, starting with Dogma in 1999. So 2019 also marks the 20th anniversary of Mooby, the Golden Calf! #KevinSmith #jenschwalbach #jayandsilentbobreboot #neworleans #moobys #viewaskew

  • I was there when #y2jayandsilentbob happened! @chrisjerichofozzy joined #jayandsilentbobreboot last week in a scene stolen from some of the 80’s road movies I grew up watching! This was the first time @jaymewes shared screen time with #rawisjericho but it’s the second time I’ve worked with the #fozzy frontman (the first being on the forthcoming horror anthology #killroywashere). And both times, this super sweet Canadian kid has been cast waaaaay against type. If I ever get to make another movie after this one, I told Chris he’s gonna be a good guy (maybe we’ll finally do that Canadian James Bond comedy we talked about on the podcast that one time). After today, we only have 8 shooting days left on @jayandsilentbob Reboot, which is basically the entire third act. I’ve got 40 minutes of the movie already edited and I’ll cut more this weekend. Thanks to @dpronlevy, the movie is way better than I even wanted it to be (Reboot is easily one of my best looking movies to date). And starting at noon, it’s all cameos all the time from here on out, as fresh famous faces join us every day until we wrap! #KevinSmith #chrisjericho #jasonmewes #jaymewes #roadmovie #sabanfilms #neworleans

  • And Justice for all! It didn’t feel like a true sequel until @shannonelizabeth stepped on the set of @jayandsilentbob Reboot. But it’s almost like she stepped out of a box that was sealed when we wrapped #jayandsilentbobstrikeback - because Shannon hasn’t aged at all! Time marches on, and it’s marched all over my face and Jay’s face - but not Shannon’s! The love of Jay’s life returns to kick our primary plot into gear - and Shannon returned to us from #africa, where she’s been living lately, working to save elephants and rhinos with her @shannonelizabethfdn! So @jaymewes and I were especially appreciative Shannon not only came back but also came far, leaving behind the noble work for a minute to do some silly shit with old friends. One of the hidden highlights of the shoot for me thus far was overhearing #jasonmewes remind #shannonelizabeth that she was his first onscreen kiss. 18 years after we all got together and struck back, we’re reuniting to Reboot! #KevinSmith #jaymewes #jayandsilentbobreboot #neworleans #nostalgia #memberberries🍇#boobookittyfuck

  • Method Acting! In @jayandsilentbob Reboot, we finally answer the immortal question: How high? So @jaymewes and I turned to the only men who might be able to solve this eternal mystery: @methodmanofficial & @redmangilla! Holy fuck, what a great night we had on set! It was a gigantic, packed day where we had a hundred extras and I was in and out of costumes - and in the middle of it all was the Mef and Red scene. But the moment we called “Action,” the legends launched into the single best first take I ever shot in 25 years: they were pitch-perfect and hysterical (and a little touching)! It was so good, I could’ve cut their whole performance from that one take! But my friends flew all way to #nola to say this shit, so we did another two shot, a pair of singles and then picture wrapped our secret sauce! I’ve had millions of memorable moments over the course of my career. But watching that magic take unfurl is in my Top Ten! And when I heard #methodman and #redman say “Snoogans” and “Snootchie Bootchies”? I was lifted! Many thanks for bringing absolute fire, my friends! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #jaymewes #JayandSilentBobReboot #indiefilm

  • Happy 48th Birthday to my bro-sier @samosier - the most powerful agent of change I ever met! I would not be the me I am today without his lifelong assist! He’s like the Gretzky of Besties!I love this PacNorWe raised bearded ball of logic and talent who taught me more than all the schools I attended combined. To quote a shmaltzy musical Scott would have to be dragged to? “Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better? But because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” See you on set, sir! If you wanna give the funny half of #SModcast a birthday gift, listen to the latest episode (in which Mos kills it) or download the @grinchmovie that he co-directed! #KevinSmith #scottmosier #birthday #thegrinch #thegrinchmovie
