Kevin Smith's Moose Jaws May Be Bubbling Back to Life

Kevin Smith provides an update on Moose Jaws

In addition, the filmmaker of the Clerks also talks about the other films he has planned.

Kevin Smith has announced that the long-talked-about Moose Jaws will be among his upcoming films. The movie is exactly what it sounds like from the title. Jaws, but with a moose. The news came during a GalaxyCon Q&A, among a slew of other announcements for its future release schedule. According to Smith, Moose Jaws will finally be able to perform thanks to the people of Lionsgate, with whom he had teamed up

“’We’ve sold so many copies of Jay & Silent Bob Reboot on DVD and Blu-ray that if you have any more of that Jay and Silent Bob bullshit and you can do it for less than eight million dollars, we’ll will totally do. ‘ And I was like, ‘I’m filled with nothing but Jay and Silent Bob bullshit!’ »

In addition to the aforementioned Jay & Silent Bob reboot, Lionsgate also teamed up with Smith for the recent Clerks III. Both films mark Smith’s return to the View Askewniverse, which began with the original Clerks and was previously set to end with Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

“They were like, ‘Well, like what?’ And I said, ‘I have this movie Clerks III that they’re in’, they’re like, ‘Okay, what else? “I had this movie called Moose Jaws,” and they said, “What is Moose Jaws? And I was like, ‘Moose Jaws is like Jaws but with a moose instead of a shark.’ And they said, ‘What’s the budget on that?’ I was like, ‘About three million dollars,’ they’re like, ‘We’re going to do four.’ So it looks like Moose Jaws is finally coming. »

What comes before and after

Moose Jaws is intended to be the final installment in its True North trilogy, so named because each episode is set primarily in Canada. It all started with Tusk, which is about a podcaster named Wallace Bryton (Justin Long) who is turned into a human walrus by Howard Howe (Michael Parks). Yoga Hosers, the second episode from 2016, is about the two Canadian store clerks from the previous film, Colleen Collette (Lily-Rose Depp) and Colleen McKenzie (Harley Quinn Smith), who fight against an army of Bratzis. Nazi bratwurst.

Interestingly enough, the True North trilogy could become a tetralogy. In 2020, the elder Smith revealed during a Twitch stream that he had an idea for a sequel to Tusk. In it, Wallace breaks free from his walrus-altered body, to become the film’s new villain. He would go on to torture people in exactly the same way he was tortured in the previous movie.

Unfortunately for those who have been looking forward to the long-awaited Moose Jaws, Smith has two more movies to make first. Twilight of the Mallrats, which is the sequel to his second feature, and The 4:40 Movie, an original new product. Additionally, Smith also planned another Jay and Silent Bob movie in addition to a Red State sequel, which also starred the late Parks.
