Jay and Silent Bob return for a reboot 18 years later

The cast of the new Jay and Silent Bob film hit the red carpet in Los Angeles, California on Monday (October 14) to celebrate the film's upcoming release.

Writer, director and actor Kevin Smith suffered a near fatal heart attack in 2018 and vowed to make a reboot of the classic if he survived.

"I begged the doctor to save my life, he did.

I got healthy as I could and within a year - one year from the day of the heart attack we were starting to shoot the movie." Smith stars alongside his loyal sidekick Jason Mewes as the 'stoners' fans all know and love as they try to stop a Hollywood studio from recreating a movie based on their characters.

This time Smith's real-life daughter, Harley Quinn Smith joined the cast and the duo revealed the first day on set wasn't easy.

"He kept saying that I was acting in a different movie because they were all like really broad comedy and I was trying to like, ground it a little bit with my character…So, we got in a fight," explained Harley.

However, ultimately Kevin realized she was a real discovery.

"I didn't know that acting in this movie was going to pan out for her, but it really did.

She grounds the movie and gives it this wonderful heart and you believe that she longs for a dad even if it's Jay, it kind of works." The film is packed with cameos from Rosario Dawson, Ben Affleck, Jason Biggs, Tommy Chong and more.

"Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" hits U.S. theaters October 15 and 17.
