Kevin Smith has long been saying that he was going to complete his Great White North Trilogy. The films began with Tusk and Yoga Hosers and plan on ending with the killer moose picture, Moose Jaws. The story for the film is essentially Jaws but with a moose instead of a shark. Johnny Depp’s Guy Lapointe was said to make another cameo in Moose Jaws, but we aren’t sure to what capacity that will be in. There is also talk of a possibility of Jay and Silent Bob arriving in the trilogy to play the equivalent of a Quint character.

Recently, Smith attended GalaxyCon and had the opportunity to give an update on the long-awaited Moose Jaws film.

“Moose Jaws is a movie I’ve been threatening to make for a long time, and but thanks to the good folks at Lionsgate it’s actually going to happen.” Smith told GalaxyCon. “The reason Clerks III got made is, Lionsgate had home video on Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. They didn’t have theatrical, that was Saban and overseas it was Universal, but Lionsgate had home video. Which to me is streaming, but Lionsgate still makes DVDs and Blu-rays and steelbooks, physical media. So four months after the physical media release of Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, we got a phone call from the people at Lionsgate and they were like, ‘We sold so many copies of Jay & Silent Bob Reboot on DVD and Blu-ray that if you have any more of this Jay and Silent Bob bullshit and you can make it for under eight million dollars, we’ll totally do it. And I was like, ‘I am filled with nothing but Jay and Silent Bob bullshit!’ I’ve got this movie called Clerks III that they’re in, and I’ve got this movie called Moose Jaws.”

Smith has a lot of sequels in the works in varying levels. He has a Tusk sequel, a Mallrats Sequel and a Red State sequel. We are hopeful that Smith keeps these films coming. We were huge fans of Tusk over here at iHorror. Plus, Red State was an incredible picture that deserves a sequel for being so ahead of its time.
