Fake Uber Drivers Tried to Kidnap Kevin Smith's Daughter

Fake Uber Drivers Tried to Kidnap Kevin Smith's Daughter

'Sorry Men Suck.' That's the message Kevin Smith adorned his duaghter's surprise cake with after she was almost kidnapped by a pair of fake Uber drivers. Harley Quinn Smith, who stars in her dad's upcoming comedy thriller Yoga Hosers, reported on Saturday that two men posing as Uber drivers tried to make away with. But they failed in their kidnapping scheme.

As of now, the two white males that Harley Quinn Smith describes are still at large. As you can see in the above message, the actress is hoping to get the word out, in case these men are still out prowling for young women. And it's unclear if they knew who's daughter they were trying to kidnap. Harley Quinn Smith was unable to get a photo or a license plate, but the incident has been reported to the authorities.

Kevin Smith's Cameo Revealed in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Kevin Smith's Cameo Revealed in ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Way back in June 2014, just a few months after production started on Star Wars: The Force Awakens, we got one of the first reports directly from the set from a somewhat surprising source: filmmaker Kevin Smith. The filmmaker recounted his set visit during one of his many podcasts, and while he didn't divulge too many specific details, he did reveal that the Millennium Falcon would return. Now that Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a massive hit, LucasFilm is starting the pull the curtain back from this secretive production even more, with StarWars.com revealing a list of the "additional voices" used in the film, one of which was Kevin Smith.

The "killing and white uniforms" bit is a nod to his feature film debut, Clerks. There is a scene in the comedy where Randall (Jeff Anderson) is talking about the "independent contractors" presumably brought on to help finish construction on the second Death Star in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, where he states that all Stormtroopers know is "killing and white uniforms." As for the "additional voices" in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Kevin Smith isn't the only notable name.

Kevin Smith Is Directing an Episode of ‘The Flash’ Season 2

The TCA winter tour continues today, with The CW's presentation, where the network made a few big announcements. Deadline reports that filmmaker Kevin Smith has come aboard to direct an unspecified Season 2 of The Flash. No specific details about the episode were revealed, but it will air sometime in May. It's possible that this could be the season finale, but that has not been confirmed.

Kevin Smith hasn't spent much time working in television, but he did direct the pilot episode of The CW's Reaper back in 2007. He currently serves as one of the stars and executive producers on AMC's Comic Book Men. It isn't known when production on Kevin Smith's episode of The Flash will begin.

Silent Bob Faces a Sick & Devastating Fate in ‘Moose Jaws’

Silent Bob Faces a Sick & Devastating Fate in ‘Moose Jaws’

Tusk was the first chapter in director Kevin Smith's True North trilogy, which consists of three Canadian set horror movies. The next installment, which has already wrapped, is called Yoga Hosers, and everything will come to an end with Moose Jaws. Up until now, these three movies did not appear to be a part of Kevin Smith's View Askewniverse, which consists of such neo-classics as Clerks, Mallrats and Chasing Amy. The one thing that has always connected the Askewniverse is the omnipresence of Jay and Silent Bob. Now, it seems they will bring everything full circle, appearing in the climax of Moose Jaws. But as Kevin Smith explains it, it's not going to end quite so pretty for one of the dynamic duo.

Over the years, Kevin Smith has become easily identifiable by both his Silent Bob character and his tent sized hockey jerseys. While it doesn't seem like he'll ever retire his personal style, it sounds like he's ready to bury Silent Bob for good. Yes, the character who first appeared in 1994 with a cameo in the director's feature film debut Clerks, is going to be put to rest in glorious fashion. And there will be blood, sweat and a lot of tears.

‘Mallrats 2’ Begins Shooting in January 2016

‘Mallrats 2’ Begins Shooting in January 2016

You may recall that, back in April, Kevin Smith revealed MallBrats would be his next movie, with production slated to begin in late 2015, as opposed to the original plan, where the sequel would shoot in early 2016. The filmmaker also said in April they had found a mall that was "going away" soon, which meant the production had to be moved up so they could shoot there before it went away. Now that production has been moved back to January 2016, it isn't known if the Exton Square Mall is the same mall he was referring to in that original report.

The confirmed cast members for MallBrats include Kevin Smith (Silent Bob), Jason Mewes (Jay), Jason Lee (Brodie), Stan Lee (Himself), Michael Rooker (Mr. Svenning), Shannen Doherty (Rene), Jeremy London (T.S.), Renée Humphrey (Trish), Joey Lauren Adams (Gwen), Sven-Ole Thorsen (LaFours), Ethan Suplee (William), Bryan Johnson (Steve Dave), Walter Flanagan (The Fanboy), Brian O'Halloran (Gil Hicks) and Scott Mosier (Roddy). It isn't known if Claire Forlani (Brandi Svenning) or Priscilla Barnes (the topless psychic Ivannah) will reprise their roles. Kevin Smith also hopes to have Ben Affleck join in just for a very small cameo, but he has never been confirmed to join the cast, due to his Batman commitments at Warner Bros. The director hasn't announced any new cast members yet, but now that a production schedule has been locked in, perhaps we'll be hearing about new additions to the cast soon.
