On his Twitter account, someone asked Smith if he was planning on doing a post or pre-credits tribute to Lee for the film, while also acknowledging that Smith wouldn't want to give away any spoilers.
Smith's only response was ominously telling the follower: "Trust me, True Believer...", then ending with #JayAndSilentBobReboot.
While he didn't divulge any details, it seems Smith does have something planned to pay tribute to the legendary comic writer. Friends in real life, Lee first worked with Smith in the latter's film, Mallrats, in which he had a cameo. This led to the two working with each other several times afterwards. Last April, several months before his death, Smith even invited Lee to come live with him at his home out of concern for Lee's welfare.
Written and directed by Kevin Smith, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot stars Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, Shannon Elizabeth, Jason Lee, Donnell Rawlings, Joey Lauren Adams and an assortment of other stars. The film is expected to be released in theaters later this year.
