Jay & Silent Bob are DRAWN Out of Retirement with a New Animated Film and a North American Tour!



Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes are hitting the road with their new animated film, JAY & SILENT BOB’S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE - which blazes across America in a series of one-night-only shows starting April 20, 2013 in Atlanta at the Center Stage Theater. The legendary best buds from Jersey are back to dispense weed and wisdom in cartoon form and audiences will have the opportunity to watch the new movie and stick around for a rip-roaring Q&A afterwards. Tickets go on sale Friday, March 1, 2013 at http://seesmod.com/groovymovie.

Produced by Mewes and directed by first-time filmmaker Steve Stark, JAY & SILENT BOB’S SUPER GROOVY CARTOON MOVIE features the voice talents of Eliza Dushku, Tara Strong, Ralph Garman, Neil Gaiman, Ben Gleib, Jon Lovitz and the podcast stars of Smith’s SModcast Network! When they can no longer stomach the ever-growing weed of suburban crime, Jay & Silent Bob take on the mantles of costumed avengers Bluntman & Chronic, smashing super-villains they accidentally create! Can the Doobage Duo save their beloved Jersey ‘burbs from their new arch enemies, the League of Shitters? While clearly not the comic book movie the world wants, GROOVY MOVIE is the comic book movie the world needs!
“This is what can happen when you put the plug in the jug, kids!" said screenwriter and SModCo head honcho Kevin Smith of Producer (and friend of Bill W.) Jason Mewes. "I'm crazy proud of Jay for turning the soul-crushing bummer that is sobriety into productivity, making something as funny and fun as GROOVY MOVIE in the process!”

"As an actor, it was awesome to play Jay again," said producer and voice talent Jason Mewes. "But as a producer, I sweated every nickel because I wanted to keep the budget low… And dirty.”

The budget for GROOVY MOVIE: $69,000!

“That budget figure not only makes us proud, it makes us giggle,” Smith went on to say. “We live in an age of wonder where you can make a whole cartoon movie for well under a hundred grand! And the super hero who made miracles happen for next to nothing in cost was our genius director, Canadian animator Steve Stark!”

“A few years back, Steve was a Jay & Silent Bob fan who Tweeted us a YouTube cartoon he made from an episode of SModcast,” Mewes explains. “Now the guy’s directed an entire Jay & Silent Bob cartoon movie! And since we’re using Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and YouTube to sell tour tickets, it’s like the whole cartoon’s made possible by the power of social media! SNOOTCH!”

Forgoing a standard theatrical release, SModcast Pictures (a division of SModCo) will repeat the city-by-city, one-night-only structure of their groundbreaking RED STATE USA Tour and cap each Groovy Movie screening with a performance of their Jay and Silent Bob Get Old podcast - the wildly popular live show which has sold out tours across the US, Canada, the UK and Australia. All 103 live shows recorded to date are available for download at SModcast.com and iTunes. Mewes has also produced home video versions of the show entitled, Jay and Silent Bob Get Old: Teabagging in the UK, Jay and Silent Bob Get Irish: The Swearing o'the Green, and Jay and Silent Bob Go Down Under.

Complete ticket and tour information is available at http://seesmod.com/groovymovie and the trailer can be seen at http://youtube.com/seesmod. “Like” Jay and Silent Bob on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/JayandSilentBob.

About Jason Mewes (Jay)

Jason Mewes (@JayMewes) is the Creative Producer at SModCo Internet Radio (SIR), which launched in May 2011, as well as the Creative Producer at SModCo Internet TV (SIT), which launched in May 2012 and lives online as a YouTube channel. SModco produces Mewes’ weekly video blog called, Mewes News, which was also the first SIT video to air. Best known as the vocal half of the on-screen comedic duo, Jay and Silent Bob, Mewes has reprised his role as the celebrated character, “Jay,” in a number of films. With cult-fans following his controversial antics, Mewes has captured audiences with rebellious banter against his unspoken other half and longtime friend, Kevin Smith (Silent Bob). Since the beginning of the duo’s offbeat work together, Mewes and Smith have continued to build on their beloved character driven roles from the Jay and Silent Bob series. Most recently, Mewes wrapped Spoilers, alongside Smith, an original online series for Hulu and in 2011, he co-hosted the TV series, Cinema Enema, which reviews film in an off-kilter way. As an actor, Mewes can be seen in a starring role in the Wunderkind Pictures feature, Noobz, as well as The Last Godfather, Money Shot, K-11, and Rock Jocks. Mewes’ most noted film credits include: Smith’s award-winning Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Clerks II, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. This string of cult hits all celebrated and continued Mewes’ infamous role as “Jay,” a bawdy, fast talking, and over sexed but very likable guy. For his successful and brow-raising portrayal, MTV honored him with 2007’s Dirtiest Mouth Award.

Coolest. ...trailer

So.. if this wins an Oscar, Mewes will be the one to accept? That's cool. I mean, the likelihood of that ever happening are admittedly slim, I'm just saying, if it won, it would be all Mewes, baby.

Cannot wait.

I wish they'd bring back the Clerks cartoon with some new episodes.
DukeAcureds - 3/1/2013, 11:23 AM
It's be cool if the DC Universe Original Animated Movies were given similar tours. Maybe with the Flashpoint movie?
I know they do their premieres at the Paley Center's on both coastlines, but those moviews are begging for limited theatrical runs (If not full-blown releases. I guess they'd have to go 3D, but then, The Princess and the Frog was 2D and that didn't do too badly). Warner's need to give Timm and co at shot at the silver screen.

Wow, "BLUNT SABER" that was fu...... hilarous!

Would have been sweet if it was the same animation for the Clerks series.
NoJobBOB - 3/1/2013, 12:10 PM
YES! I love it. Im so excited for this.

Anyone else heard that Kevin's writing a Clerks 3 and that its going to be his final film?
DukeAcureds - 3/1/2013, 12:40 PM
NoJobBBOB@ I've only heard the faintest of whispers on Clerks 3. However I did hear (from this very site) that he was doing a Hockey movie and that would be retiring after that. I really don't think he should retire, though. Never say never, you know? Life's funny. It chnages all the time. He might wake up one day in a passionate sweat and just have to make a movie about something or other. He moght not. Anyway, he's a lot better than he gives himself credit for. So I hope he continues to make movies, 'cause the guys a legend.
NoJobBOB - 3/1/2013, 1:11 PM
@DukeAcureds Yeah the last thing I heard was a few weeks ago and it said that his Hockey movie will be turned into a mini tv series which will allow him to get into Clerks 3 and it's already got a date to be released X-mas 14 or 15. I can't remember. I really don't even know what site I read it on but it was quotes from an interview Smith did.
NoJobBOB - 3/1/2013, 1:13 PM
I got this from wikipedia which is best I can do but it says the same thing I read before.

"On December 7, 2012, Smith announced on his Twitter account, that his highly anticipated ice hockey film, Hit Somebody, would be changed to a TV mini-series and that Smith's last directional effort will be Clerks III. Smith states, "So with the Hit Somebody shift, the minute Jeff Anderson signs on, my last cinematic effort as a writer/director will be Clerks III."
