Kevin Smith’s 2019, also thanks to the release of the Jay and Silent Bob reboot, has been a very positive year. The director wanted to celebrate it with a touching post on Instagram, in which he also revealed that he is working on the script for Clerks 3 and has a sequel of Mallrats in mind (Generation X in Italian).
“2019 was truly one of the best years of my life!” reads the start of Kevin Smith ‘s post. “Many of my dreams have come true, as well as many other things that I didn’t even dare dream of.”
The director then mentioned his Jay and Silent Bob, in which there is an actor who appeared in Iron Man, and the tour that will resume on January 10 and which includes another 25 stages. “I’m so glad I didn’t die in 2018, because I would have missed all the things I listed in this photo.”
Then comes the part related to the new projects: “It will be difficult for 2020 to match this 2019, but I’m starting in a fun way writing things for Brodie Bruce & Co. in a new screenplay that I’m calling TWILIGHT OF THE MALLRATS! Also, the CLERKS script 3 is underway, so we’ll see what my first roaring twenties movie will be. “
The post ends with a summary of the past decade: “It was the decade in which I almost died of a serious heart attack and the decade in which I became vegan and returned to my weight in high school! Who knows what we have in store the next decade, but I’m ready to turn the page and find out! Happy new year, my friends! “
After revealing a possible alternative ending for Joker, Kevin Smith is ready to dive enthusiastically into the 1920s.

2019 was seriously one of the best years of my life! So many of my dreams came true this year, as well as a few big things too dazzling to even dare dream about! From the return of @jayandsilentbob, to having my career literally cemented at the legendary @chinesetheatres, to Clerks being accepted into the @librarycongress – 2019 kept giving and giving! Sooooo glad I didn’t drop dead back in 2018, because I would’ve missed all the stuff I listed with my pic. Thank you to everyone who supported the #jayandsilentbob #rebootroadshow Tour: we’ve made over 3 million bucks from our 2 @fathomevents screenings and the 37 cities we’ve visited so far (Tour resumes January 10th in Oakland for another 25 cities through Feb 26). Many thanks for powering my dopey dream of reopening the Askewniverse and making me and @jaymewes feel so welcomed in all your towns and cities! It’s gonna be hard for 2020 to measure up to 2019 – but I’m off to a fun start by writing stuff for Brodie Bruce & Co. to say in the new script I’m calling TWILIGHT OF THE MALLRATS! The CLERKS III script is also underway, so we’ll see which flick will be my first film of the roaring 20’s! But tonight, I end the year like I always do – standing on the stage at the @hollywoodimprov with @ralphgarman, making BABBLE until the Ball drops (a few tix left at the link in my bio)! It was a decade that began badly with COP OUT and the TOO FAT TO FLY incident. The decade of the Red State Tour, @tuskthemovie and @yogahosers! It was the decade in which I almost died of a massive heart attack, and the decade where I went Vegan and got down to my high school weight! Who knows what the next decade holds in store for us – but I’m ready to turn the page and find out! Happy New Year, my friends!
