Stars of The Flash to appear in Jay And Silent Bob Reboot

July 27th, 2018 by Marc Comments

So, Kevin Smith revealed at SDCC at the weekend that another Jay And Silent Bob movie was in the works.

And, on top of that, fans of TV’s The Flash should be very excited for it.

During his SDCC panel Smith revealed that Grant Gustin (Barry Allen/The Flash), Tom Cavanagh (Harrison Wells), and Carlos Valdes (Carlos Ramon/Vibe) will all be appearing in Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.

The sequel is set to film in November.

Smith, of course, is friends with the actors having directed several episodes of The CW’s DC Shows as well as appearing with Jay himself, Jason Mewes, in The Flash.

We’ve known about the movie for a while now (here) and Smith has said that it’s not exactly a reboot of the characters: “If you remember Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, it was a movie in which Jay and Silent Bob found out Hollywood was making a movie about them so they went cross country to Hollywood to stop that from happening.” Smith said.

“Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is completely f—ing different. In Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, Jay and Silent Bob find out that Hollywood is making a reboot of that old movie that they had made about them, and they have to go cross the country to Hollywood to stop it all over again. it’s literally the same f—ing movie all over again. It’s a movie that makes fun of sequels and remakes and reboots while being all three at the same time.”

Honestly, I’d be much more excited for more Clerks or Mallrats or even Chasing Amy because, frankly, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back (the first movie) was so bad I had to rewatch it to make sure I wasn’t mistaken, but it’s always fun to have the dynamic duo return to our screens… so it’s not all bad at all.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
