Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, Shannon Elizabeth

Filmmaker Kevin Smith revealed on his Instagram account this week that Shannon Elizabeth of American Pie fame is returning for the upcoming sequel, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. Elizabeth will be reprising her role as Justice from 2001’s Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. You can check out the set photo Smith shared below.

Shannon Elizabeth also commented on the news on her social media, writing, “So I can finally confirm the rumors… So great to be back on set with these two. @thatkevinsmith @jaymewes I love you guys. Thanks for having me back.”

Smith himself wrote on the news: “And Justice for all! It didn’t feel like a true sequel until @shannonelizabeth stepped on the set of @jayandsilentbob Reboot. But it’s almost like she stepped out of a box that was sealed when we wrapped #jayandsilentbobstrikeback – because Shannon hasn’t aged at all! Time marches on, and it’s marched all over my face and Jay’s face – but not Shannon’s! The love of Jay’s life returns to kick our primary plot into gear – and Shannon returned to us from #africa, where she’s been living lately, working to save elephants and rhinos with her @shannonelizabethfdn! So @jaymewes and I were especially appreciative Shannon not only came back but also came far, leaving behind the noble work for a minute to do some silly shit with old friends. One of the hidden highlights of the shoot for me thus far was overhearing #jasonmewes remind #shannonelizabeth that she was his first onscreen kiss. 18 years after we all got together and struck back, we’re reuniting to Reboot!”

Saban Films will release the upcoming film theatrically. It’s currently undergoing production.
