On Bruno and Silent Bob

Last night Dr. Mrs. Just Another Movie Geek and I watched the 3rd Q&A session with Kevin Smith. For those unfamiliar this series is just him on a stage taking questions from audience members and telling funny and interesting stories about life in the movie biz and randomness in the world of Kevin Smith. If you are a fan of Kevin Smith (and especially like his film commentaries) then I recommend these films.

In last nights viewing he tells of his time working on Die Hard 4 and dealing with Bruce Willis. Bruce has a bit of an ego and is a bit hard to work with and Kevin figured after he was done was over and he wouldn't be dealing with Bruce again. He then mentions later on the 4th of July he got a call from Bruce to which Bruce said "You are from Jersey. I'm from Jersey. You write and direct. I act. We should do something together sometime." Kevin was floored but he figured he had nothing that he could make that Bruce would ever want to be in.

But then it dawned on me. A sequel to Unbreakable written and directed by Kevin Smith. The boy knows how to write some great comic books. And Unbreakable was a great example of how superheroes could exist in the real world. It will probably never see the light of day but this movie geek would love to see it happen. Fate, get to work on that.
