Going out with whatever’s less-than-a-whimper.
He had a hard time getting down to only two. The films will be released with a scant 14 conversations about Chewbacca’s genitals.
Kevin Smith wants to get the band back together.
Kevin Smith is already drumming up publicity for his next movie.

After a string of box office failures, Kevin Smith finds a successful second career as a mime.Don't expect to hear too much about Kevin Smith's Red State. Spurned by the media coverage caused by Southwest's no fatties policy, the director has decided to make his Fred Phelps-inspired genre-bending horror film quietly with no major announcements to the press. He'd also like to stay away from casting big names for the project, and focus more on the difficult task of casting well-known unknowns. This where story am confusing. Explain me Kevin, Smith.“For the first time since "Clerks" I’m trying to go, not unknown, but actors who aren’t like, you’re gonna see them on screen and not know their name…it’s a weird kind of in between neither place that I’m reaching for. It’s not complete unknown and it’s not remotely f*cking recognizable, name recognizable…It’s really tough to find actors whose name you don’t know. You know you can go to "Law and Order" and grab anybody from the cast and they’ve done five or six episodes and sh*t but you’d still recognize them and you’d be watching the movie and be like “that’s that dude, I’ve seen that dude on "Law and Order!” “Huh? So, he's making a "Law & Order" movie? Without Sam Waterston? What's going on here? Did you catch all that Britney??(Collider)
Kevin Smith wants Seann William Scott to take it to the boards for his new hockey comedy Hit Somebody. The script is based on a Warren Zevon song with lyrics by Mitch Alborn that tells the story of a hockey enforcer who strives to score a single goal in a game. No deal is in place yet but this is who Smith really wants for the project. Having worked together most recently on Cop Out, Smith says of Scott:"I had all the elements in place, and the one thing I was missing was the personality. Generally I like to write to a voice, but I didn't know who that voice was or what that voice could be. And then after spending all the time with Seann on this movie, he's pitch perfect. He is that guy."He goes on to say:"I look at this as Seann's opportunity to go to the (Tom) Hanks level."What does that entail? Goofy wigs and AIDS dramas? If I were to cast a movie called Hit Somebody, my immediate choice would be to hire Sean Penn. (NHL.com)
