Kevin Smith has not been shy with the details for his upcoming film Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which sees the titular pair heading back to Hollywood to stop a reboot of the Bluntman and Chronic movie. The first film with a similar plot, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, featured a girl gang, so the reboot will as well. In this film, the women will be played by Alice Wen, Treshelle Edmond, Aparna Brielle, and Harley Quinn Smith.

He said in his vlog (via Uproxx): “In Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, we had a girl gang and they were in a van. As you can see, we got another van and we got another girl gang. Essentially Brodie communicated that reboots have youth and diversity … If Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was like a Looney Tunes cartoon, Reboot is like an episode of The Simpsons where you laugh a lot but then they also pull on your heartstrings as well.

He also wrote about the group in a post on Instagram:

For #internationalwomensday, let me introduce you to our Reboot Girl Gang! In #jayandsilentbobstrikeback, @jayandsilentbob met up with a Girl Gang in a van. So in the Reboot, the stoner duo meet up with another Girl Gang in a very similar van (I’m telling you, it’s almost the same movie). And as most reboots feature a familiar story freshly presented with a young and diverse new cast, we follow the example and go full “Force Awakens” with our Girl Gang! But that’s not the only movie with origins in the 70’s that we share a little DNA with: #jayandsilentbobreboot has some #badnewsbears in it, with me & @jaymewes as Buttermaker and the Girl Gang as our North Valley Bears (but with the van, we’re more like #thebadnewsbearsinbreakingtraining). @aparnabrielle plays our plucky Jihad, @treshelleedmond plays our Silent Bob-ish Soapy, @alysswhen plays our mysterious international podcaster Shan Yu, and my favorite actress ever @harleyquinnsmith plays Milly – who’s kinda like the Justice of this Girl Gang (minus the romance with Jay, naturally). And like the last Girl Gang that changed Jay and Silent Bob’s lives, these quick, quippy young ladies will take our heroes on the adventure of a lifetime, ending at that most wretched hive of scum and villainy – Hollywood! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #jaymewes #harleyquinnsmith #aparnabrielle #treshelleedmond #alicewen #JayandSilentBobReboot #JayandSilentBob #SilentBob #jenschwalbach #reboot #indiefilm #indiefilmmaking #neworleans @dpronlevy @traceylandon @destrofilms @jayandsilentbob @jordanmonsanto @kylebonokaplan 📸 @saban_films @universalpictures @skitbags @legionmofficial @hideoutpictures
