Jay And Silent Bob Reboot, starring Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith – will be in UK cinemas this November.

Kevin Smith will be bringing the characters of Jay and Silent Bob back to the screen later this year, having completed work on his next feature, Jay And Silent Bob Reboot.

The new movie has been picked up by Universal for distribution in the UK, and it’ll be releasing the film on November 29th. Smith and Jason Mewes take the lead roles in the movie, and there’s no shortage of cameos from the View Askewniverse (notably including Ben Affleck, with the disagreement between Smith and Affleck now seemingly healed).

The BBFC has classified the movie as 15, confirming a 105 minute running time. It warns of “strong language, sex references, drug misuse, nudity”.

The official synopsis for the movie reads as follows…

When Jay & Silent Bob discover that a reboot of the Bluntman & Chronic movie (a movie based on a comic book based on them) is being made (and they lose the right to use their own names after the company behind it take out an injunction against them), they head off to ChronicConin Hollywood to stop it. 

Along the way, they run into Jay’s old girlfriend, Justice (Shannon Elizabeth) and Jay discovers he has a daughter he never knew he had – one who forces Jay & Silent Bob, at knifepoint, to take her and her 3 friends with them to Hollywood, so they can be extras in the new movie.

A reboot of Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back, in which they find out a movie is being made based on a comic book based on them and head off to Hollywood to stop it, this movie takes on remakes, reboots and sequels, whilst simultaneously being all 3! Filled to the brim with cameo appearances from a myriad of past characters in the View Askewniverse, as well as some new, but very familiar, faces.

We’ll bring you a trailer when we get one…
