It feels like it’s been forever since we heard anything regarding Clerks and Dogma director Kevin Smith’s Jaws parody Moose Jaws. Until today that is…
During a Q&A last Friday, Smith updated us on the status of the flick, saying: “Moose Jaws is the movie I’m doing that’s Jaws but with a moose instead of a shark. It’s so weird that you bring it up, we have a phone call about it with some of the folks that we made REBOOT with next week. A conference call. So yeah, it may be bubbling back to life. Wouldn’t that be nice? Head up to the Canadian outdoors, spread far apart from everybody, making movies. One day, when we’re allowed to do that sort of thing again. So yeah, movement on Moose Jaws!”
Watch the full video below.
Moose Jaws is basically Jaws with a moose instead of a shark… a beat for beat Jaws remake at that. The movie is said to go on like that until the third act, when Smith turns it into something else… Think Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters mixed with Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan with an added dash of Return of the Jedi for good measure.
In the film, Smith split the part of Quint (played in Jaws by Robert Shaw) into two parts… played by Silent Bob and Jay, so yes, Smith’s True North Trilogy crashes into the View Askewniverse.
