Saban Films has acquired North American rights to Kevin Smith’s Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, the sequel to the 2001 comedy Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

Saban Films said Friday that it has committed to a “substantial” theatrical release. Smith announced on Jan. 2 that he had launched pre-production on the long-promised project with Jay Mewes. Jordan Monsanto of Smodco is producing alongside Destro Film’s Liz Destro.

Saban Films’ Bill Bromiley said, “Jay and Silent Bob is a global franchise which has a very loyal fan base. Partnering with Kevin at script stage on the next chapter of these iconic characters is a huge milestone. This is the beginning of a new initiative at Saban Films, to partner on IP with seasoned filmmakers and talent early on in the creative process all the way through distribution.”

Smith and Mewes made their film debut in the 1994 comedy Clerks. Smith wrote, directed, co-produced, and acted in Clerks, portraying the character Silent Bob as part of the team of Jay and Silent Bob.
