'Jay and Silent Bob Reboot' filmmaker Kevin Smith, who had a massive heart attack in the month of February in 2018 in an interview said that he doesn't care if anyone judges him. The filmmaker said that he has stopped caring what people think about him or his work after having a brush with death. The 49-year-old filmmaker said that his health scare experience enabled him to pour his heart onto the sequel of his 2001 film.
According to Yahoo Movies UK, the filmmaker said, "We were able to lean into the emotional aspects of the movie because after the heart attack, I didn't care anymore if anyone judges me. I almost died, I'm living on borrowed time, I've tried to act accordingly because I'm hyper-aware of that. So yeah I'm gonna make a movie that memorialises me."
Smith also said that he has made this film only for his fans and to draw new crowds. The director feels the film has to be culturally accepted considering the impact of Marvel on modern cinema. Kevin Smith highlighted that he could add more personal elements to the movie. He said that the team had tried to make an entertaining film for the viewers, however, he didn't feel like checking every box.
