Last week @hulu announced a deal to carry four new @marvel animated shows: #Modok, #HitMonkey, #TigraAndDazzler and #HowardTheDuck! This is fantastic news to me as a fan, but as a professional, it’s quacking me up because THEY HIRED ME TO WRITE IT! Mercifully, they hired the great #DaveWillis to write it too, so we might have a successful show! Dave and I are going Full-Gerber on Howard: Beverly, Bong and the entire cast of characters that made this fowl legend fly! I saw tests for Hit Monkey and M.O.D.O.K. already and holy duck, are they astounding! Like, legit next level shit! So Dave and I have our work cut out for us. But since Dave’s the cartoon genius behind #meatwad and the #aquateenhungerforce, Howard is in some fine feathered fingers! Thank you to #jephloeb and the #marveltelevision folks who egged me on, #hulu for the home, and #stevegerber and #valmayerik for not only an amazing character, but also the eventual job for me your work provided! I can’t spoil where we’re going, but I can tell you this: I already asked movie-Howard heroine @lea_thompson to lend us her vocal Quack Fu in a to-be-revealed-later role! And she did NOT say no! The duck versions of @jayandsilentbob come courtesy of @jeremysimser! #KevinSmith #davewillis #howardtheduckmovie #marvel

Better Slate Than Never! These are the front plates for the clappers that’ll mark the start of every take of @jayandsilentbob Reboot! The art is by storyboard (and Hit Somebody) artist @jeremysimser, and the Cinematographer who’ll be capturing it all is the hottest, wettest DP I could ask for, Mr. @dpronlevy! Today is the tech scout and tomorrow is the production meeting - the last two steps we take before rolling cameras. The first time I posted about #jayandsilentbobreboot on @instagram was way back on February 9, 2017. It’s been 2 years and a week since that post, during which time I almost died. But a week from today, we finally start rolling on Reboot. Never give up, Kids. Even when your heart wants to.

Popped over to Florida from NOLA to see Mom. My sister @virginia_in_vienna is in town from Austria as well - so together with my brother Don and his husband Jerry, we were able to do a Mom-and-her-Kids pic. It’s rare when all of us are together, and when we are, it’s like porn or crack for Mom. Don and Jerry were wed the same time Clerks came out, so they’ll be celebrating 25 years of marriage in July. The eagle-eyed might recognize my sister as the Caged Animal Masturbator in Clerks. Only one missing from the photo is Dad, gone 15 years now but never forgotten. None of this ever would’ve happened ithout his filthy lust for the little lady in the center of not just this pic but our entire lives! Mom will be visiting the set when we shoot @jayandsilentbob Reboot, so naturally, I’ll be giving her another cameo. After all, Mom was there at the start: she rolled out of bed one night at 2am back in 1993 to play the Milk Maid in my first flick, and then returned to the role years later at the end of Clerks II. She then popped up in another convenience store movie altogether when she did a brief piece in @yogahosers. So the movies also double as very expensive family photo albums for me as well. #KevinSmith #gracevsmith #family #mom #jayandsilentbobreboot

My kid and her bubblegum punk band @thetenthband made their very first music video, directed by @archerschoolforgirls fellow grad @meghan.marshall. Love that these kids met in middle school and now they’re growing up and making art together!

Happy Valentines Day to the lady who owns my heart - @jenschwalbach! Granted, the heart in question is now a famously unreliable, busted bum ticker that was packed with more cream filling than a Twinkie. But at least said cardiac Twinkie is all hers! I’ve been walking beside my forever girlfriend for over 20 years now - so we don’t celebrate Valentines Day so much as we celebrate Valentines Decades. I love you, Jenny! Thanks for making me a better person! #KevinSmith #valentinesday2018 #jenschwalbach #jennifer #jenniferschwalbach #marriage

In a million years I never thought I would ever write these words but here goes... Read about my weight-loss journey in @menshealthmag (link in my bio)! These are the excellent pics that accompany said profile, with the idea being that my 58 pound weight loss (thanks to going Vegan and joining @ww) makes me lighter than air. It doesn’t, but it sure feels like it at times. Article includes an excellent video in which you see my kitchen as well as me and Shecky working out! #KevinSmith  #WWAmbassador #menshealth #ww #getyourhearton

It’s been almost exactly a year since my heart attack, when I was locked in a life-or-death battle with the “Widowmaker!” Since then, I’ve lost over 50lbs* with the help of @ww! I’m now forever changed by the healthy habits I gained in the process of reducing! So in honor of #HeartMonth, the good folks at #WW & I are supporting the @american_heart association with our #GetYourHeartOn campaign! ❤️ All you have to do to #GetYourHeartOn is take a picture of yourself making

My kid @harleyquinnsmith is in a bubblegum punk band called @thetenthband and they just released their album entitled DUNES on @spotify, @bandcamp, @itunes & @applemusic! Having not a single musical bone in my body, I’ll be forever flabbergasted that a musician emerged from my banal balls. Naturally I’m speaking as a proud papa but I really dig the album. I especially love it when the kid curses while singing. In those moments, I feel like I really reached her. #KevinSmith #harleyquinnsmith #thetenthband #harleyquinn #indiemusic #bubblegumpunk

WANNA BE IN MY MOVIE?!? Next month, we shoot @jayandsilentbob Reboot! This time, the boys try to stop Hollywood from rebooting the old Bluntman & Chronic Movie (the “bluntastic” flick that starred @biggsjason & @vanderjames)! In the flick, we’ve got a convention scene that requires lots of @jayandsilentbob themed extras! So I’m inviting you to join us AS those extras! I’m looking for all sorts #jayandsilentbob cosplayers of every gender, race or nationality, as well as creative variations of Jay & Bob too: like steampunk Jay & Bob, Jedi Jay & Bob, Rick & Morty Jay & Bob, Bat-Jay & Bob, Ape Jay & Bob, Zombie Jay & Bob, Furry Jay & Bob, etc! The funnier or the more fucked-up (within reason and without harming yourself or others), the likelier you’ll get featured in our shots! If you ever wanted to get screen time in one of my dopey flicks, there won’t be a better chance than this! We shoot in and around the great city of #neworleans from 2/25 until the end of March, with the Con scenes scheduled toward the back half of the production. If you wanna share the silver screen with me & @jaymewes & many way more famous folks than us, email the #caballerocasting folks ASAP! And follow producer @jordanmonsanto for more Reboot casting and production updates! Hope to see you on set! I’ll be the one up front in the backwards baseball cap!

This is Doctor Marc Ladenheim (husband of @rikki_ladenheim_events). On February 25th of last year, he used his uncanny abilities & extraordinary powers to save my life after my heart went rogue and flat-out attacked me. Fuck Batman - this is what a *real* superhero looks like! If you’re anxiously anticipating @jayandsilentbob Reboot, you have this guy to thank! Consequently, if you wind up hating #jayandsilentbobreboot, you have this guy to blame! #KevinSmith #doctor #superhero #heartattack

At @sundancefestival for @imdb, I got to sit down with the genius Office co-creator @stephenmerchant and genial giant genius @therock to talk about @fightingwmyfam, their new flick that comes out next week. Super nice and super talented dudes. I gushed at Stephen about how much I still love and rewatch The Office, and then reminisced with The Rock about the night we spent shooting the Richard Kelly cult classic, #southlandtales. My kid heard me say something about this and was like “You were in a movie with The Rock once?” and I was like “I shared an entire scene with The Rock once.” She said “You have a weird career.” The kid’s not wrong. #KevinSmith #dwaynejohnson #stephenmerchant #sundance #sundancefilmfestival #fightingwithmyfamily

I got to interview the magnificent @mindykaling for @imdb last week up at the @sundancefestival, mere hours before @amazonstudios bought her new movie “Late Night” for a zillion bucks! She said I played her frenemy a few times on @mindyprojecthulu but I always thought of myself more as a possible unorthodox love interest for Season 8: like one day, Mindy sees fictional Kevin Smith as more than just an irritating comic foil who pops up in her life, and he’s suddenly a soul mate. It would’ve been like if Ms. Romano eventually married Schneider in the original “One Day at a Time” sitcom. Alas, my version of #themindyproject was not to be. But I’m hoping the former Ms. Kelly Kapoor has time to come play when we shoot @jayandsilentbob Reboot next month! Either way, I’ll be staying up for #LateNight when it hits theaters. #KevinSmith #mindykaling #sundance #jayandsilentbobreboot
