Kevin Smith reports that his Jay and Silent Bob Reboot is on it's way.

The director, actor, and podcast icon Tweeted an update just days ago.  

"I got my production physical for #JayAndSilentBobReboot, so the dream is getting closer to being a reality! The Doc said I had no idea how lucky I was to live through my heart attack before telling me about a surgeon who died of a Widowmaker while he was performing surgery. "

Also confirmed are Jason Mewes and Brian O'Halloran.

A whiskey icon has died and we should all raise our shot glasses high in his honor.

Pouring a little out is for kids who drink cheap beer.

For Dave we should raise a shot of Whistlepig Rye and sip it slowly.

Dave Pickerell just weeks ago helped the band Metallica release their Blackened whiskey.

But true whiskey fans know why the legendary band picked Dave in the first place.

Dave spent 14 years at Makers Mark, but recently split his time between several projects.

WhistlePig, Hillrock, and an old-fashioned distillery at George Washington’s plantation in Mount Vernon.

His specialty was rye whiskey, but he was a master distiller of so much more.

He died on November 1st at 70 years old.

So the first screening of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald happened.

Unless you are a total jerk, you promise to #ProtectTheSecrets right?

There is a very good reason why protecting the secrets is so important this time.

Many are reporting that there are surprises in the movie that make it much better than the first one.

That being said, the reviews are extremely positive and people can't say enough good things.

But don't you dare give away spoilers or you might get beat like the nose on Tom Riddle's face!
