Jay & Silent Bob Animated Film To Be Released Next Year
The actor/director/producer/writer Kevin Smith has made clear that Jay & Silent Bob would get a cartoon makeover. That project now has a title—Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. In an interview with Crave last February, Smith discussed the project briefly, stating that the film would be more “fanciful” and involve “superhero stuff.” On Reddit, Smith announced the film would be out sometime next year. Jay and Silent Bob have been animated before as part of Clerks: The Animated Series in 2000.
Smith’s lastest (and possibly last) directing gig is Hit Somebody, which is currently slated for 2013. The 41-year-old director has mentioned stepping out from behind the camera to pursue other artistic interests. It’s unclear exactly what Smith’s role is in the creation of the Jay & Silent Bob’s animated adventure.
SModCast Pictures is in charge of the project, which will be its first animated feature film. The SModCo YouTube Channel posts weekly cartoons for your viewing enjoyment.
