Kevin Smith Celebrates One Year Anniversary Of His Heart Attack By Announcing Production Of Jay and Silent Bob Reboot

Published On February 26, 2019 » 514 Views» By Z-rowe »

One year ago, Kevin Smith had a near-fatal heart attack. Doctors informed him it was a miracle he got help just in time because his sh*t was almost completely blocked. He has completely changed his life since the scary incident and mainly sticks to a vegan/vegetarian diet now. Last we heard, he had lost over 50 pounds, and it certainly shows.

He’s probably in the best shape of his life, and on the one-year anniversary of his heart attack, Smith went on his Instagram account to announce that production on the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot has started.

He snapped a photo with Jason Mewes and Jason Lee, and wrote a lengthy caption about how grateful he was to still be alive and doing what he loves for a living. He said the Oscars were on in the background during rehearsals the other night, and he “couldn’t help but feel relief when the ‘In Memoriam’ montage ended and I wasn’t in it” 

No word on an official release date for this reboot, but it’ll likely be either late 2019 or early 2020.

One year ago today, I almost died. So today, I’m living it up on with @jaymewes and Jason Lee on Day 1 of my new flick @jayandsilentbob Reboot! Thanks to @saban_films and Universal for the loot to make this epic, @jordanmonsanto and @destrofilms for making it happen, @jenschwalbach and @harleyquinnsmith for humoring my goofy bullshit one more time, and #jasonmewes for standing beside me all these years while I do the hardest thing I can personally ever do, either in film or in real life: simply shut the fuck up. I couldn’t think of a better scene with which to start the shoot than the return to the Mall with Brodie Bruce. The three of us gathered for a couple hours last night to run the lines and realized we first rehearsed together waaaaay back in the mid-90’s. It may be 24 years later and we may have 6 kids between us, but Jay, Lee and me partied like it was 1995, giggling while adding jokes and finding inflections. The Oscars were on in the background during our practice and I couldn’t help but feel relief when the “In Memoriam” montage ended and I wasn’t in it. We picked 2/25 as the Reboot start date *intentionally*, to celebrate the fact that I did not become Silent Bob forever 365 days ago. But after a blissful couple hours of making pretend with my friends on the set of my 14th film, I’m starting to think I *did* die in that operating room after all. Because what could be more Heavenly than this? #KevinSmith #jayandsilentbob #jayandsilentbobreboot #jasonlee #jaymewes #neworleans #brodiebruce #wwambassador #movie
