Kevin Smith não conseguiu conter a ansiedade e revelou antes da hora quem está vivendo a nova versão de Chronic no novo O Império do Besteirol Contra-Ataca. O papel será de Melissa Benoist, que é conhecida por ser a Supergirl na TV. 

O ator usou o Instagram para contar a novidade e já mostrou a famosa no seu novo traje. Confira abaixo. 

Kevin Smith tinha prometido que revelaria a informação apenas quando o novo O Império do Besteirol Contra-Ataca ganhasse um trailer na San Diego Comic-Con 2019. 

Na publicação, o criador e protagonista do filme afirmou que Melissa Benoist “é a sua atriz preferida” desde que a dirigiu em Supergirl. Além disso, a famosa foi a primeira convidada a participar do longa, além de Jason Mewes, o outro protagonista, e a filha do astro, Harley Quinn Smith. 

Outra revelação é a de que Chris Wood terá uma participação no filme. O ator é o namorado de Melissa Benoist e também atua em Supergirl. 

Na trama do reboot de O Império do Besteirol Contra-Ataca, Jay e Silent Bob, malandros vividos por Jason Mewes e Kevin Smith, viajam para Hollywood para impedir que seja produzido um reboot de um filme inspirado em suas vidas. Esse longa traz o Bluntman e o Chronic. 

O elenco conta ainda com Rosario Dawson, Jason Lee, David Dastmalchian, Joe Manganiello, Justin Long, Shannon Elizabeth, Harley Quinn Smith e Chris Hemsworth.

O reboot de O Império do Besteirol Contra-Ataca estreia em algum momento de 2019.

IT’S A (SUPER) GIRL! The majority of you guessed correctly: @melissabenoist, one of my favorite actresses in the world, indeed takes on the mantle of Chronic in our rebooted #bluntmanandchronic movie within @jayandsilentbob Reboot! (And we gave her some pants *before* the good folks at @supergirlcw!) I have loved working with Me-Me since I “directed” her in my first ep, #supergirllives. Number One on the call sheet sets the tone for the rest of production – and if that Number One is a tool, the set is a miserable place to be. But Melissa is the most exemplary and gracious Number One I ever met. She’s incredibly kind to EVERYONE in the cast and crew and she never complains about the long-ass hours, even when she’s hanging from ropes high above the ground. Then she opens up her mouth to act and you realize she’s that rare complete package in this business: true talent and true warmth. Some actors and actresses have a “process” that can be disruptive or alienating. Melissa doesn’t have to imposition anyone to be good at her job: she’s a natural. So naturally, two years ago, I asked her to be in #jayandsilentbobreboot. Melissa was the first person I asked to be in the flick (aside from @jaymewes and @harleyquinnsmith) and though it took a minute to get to the set, when we rolled cameras, she was Charm City! I saw her in the trailer in costume before we started shooting and the Last Daughter of Krypton gushed “When you asked me to be in the movie, you didn’t tell me I get to wear a cool costume too!” God, I love this kid – she’s the absolute light of the world. (And since her boyfriend is also *my* boyfriend, you might keep an eye out for a @christophrwood cameo too!) You’ll see Melissa’s Chronic and the finished #bluntcave in the #jayandsilentbobreboot trailer when it drops this weekend in Hall H at @comic_con! But until then, check the third pic to see a cameo of an infamous web portal last seen in #jayandsilentbobstrikeback! #KevinSmith #MelissaBenoist #supergirl #cw #arrowverse #JasonMewes #jaymewes #comiccon
