Jay and Silent Bob Reboot director Kevin Smith, who created and co-starred as Silent Bob in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, announced that Shannon Elizabeth will star in the new film as well. Elizabeth will reprise her role as Justice.
“And Justice for all! It didn’t feel like a true sequel until Shannon Elizabeth stepped on the set of Jay and Silent Bob Reboot,” Smith wrote on Facebook. The post is accompanied by a photo of Smith, Elizabeth and co-star Jason Mewes.
“The love of Jay’s life returns to kick our primary plot into gear - and Shannon returned to us from Africa, where she’s been living lately, working to save elephants and rhinos with her @shannonelizabethfdn!” he continued. "18 years after we all got together and struck back, we’re reuniting to Reboot!"
This photo is just the latest to come out of the film, as Smith continues to share photos from set on social media.
The characters of Jay and Silent Bob first appeared as supporting characters in 1995’s Mallrats. Their popularity among fans earned them a film of their own with Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
Written and directed by Kevin Smith, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot stars Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Lee, Donnell Rawlings and more. The film is expected to release later this year.
