Those of you keeping tabs on Kevin Smith will be happy to know that he will be hosting a special one night only event live at participating theaters. Some might not consider this a big deal, but most will since he’s currently planning on filming one more movie before calling it quits as a director. Now could be your chance to ask him questions about his upcoming film, Hit Somebody or to ask him about what his future holds for him.
I’m personally an on again off again fan of Mr. Smith. I like a majority of his work, but I tend to not care for his more popular films like Clerks, Jay and Silent Bob, Dogma or Mallrats. I’m more of a Chasing Amy type of guy and I really enjoyed Zack and Miri Make a Porno.
I think Kevin Smith is a highly intelligent individual who, like it or not, knows how to make some money doing the films he wants. Sometimes he’s a little full of himself, but he usually can back it up. It would be interesting to check this show out depending on what questions are picked and if the show keeps the showboating to a minimum.
The special event is titled Kevin Smith: Live from Behind Featuring “Jay and Silent Bob Get Old”, and it will take place on Thursday, February 2nd at 9:30 p.m. ET.
