    Well, Kevin Smith has posted his first entry into the Jersey Girl Diary.
    Unfortuneately, the Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back D.P., who was responsible for the best looking Smith film so far isn't returning. Miramax felt the look still wasn't good enough. The Kevin Smith/Jamie Anderson director/D.P. team was one that I thought would bring us alot more View Askew flicks. Alas, it was not to be...
    Fortuneately, they got a good replacement. Vilmos Zsigmond; D.P. on flicks including Deliverance, The Deer Hunter, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind; has signed to lense Jersey Girl. Fortuneately, Smith knows his limitations and leaves the D.P. to do his own work, so Zsigmond should have a lot of freedom when lensing the flick. Personally, I'm excited.
    Oh, and the title character will be played by Raquel Castro.

    The article I linked to above: Jersey Girl Diary.
    EDIT: I just checked and the vB code didn't convert right for whatever reason... the link has been updated.

    Chasing Amy didn't stoop to dick and fart jokes for MOST of it, but there were still some there.

    Also, people say this film will destroy the "Jersey Trilogy" (Chasing Amy, Clerks, and Mallrats) by adding another Jersey-based film to the group, but technically Chasing Amy takes place partially in Jersey and New York City, so it's not exactly a 100% Jersey movie.

    I've heard people complain that since it takes place IN New Jersey, it will make the trilogy into a quadrilogy (or whatever the word is). Somehow that's a bad thing.

    And you're right, it really isn't associated with the trilogy at all. It just so happens to take place in Jersey.

    The Jersey Trilogy are just the three films that take place in Jersey (Mallrats, Clerks, Chasing Amy). J&SBSB and Dogma were the last two made and don't take place in Jersey, so his first three movies are the "Jersey Trilogy."

    Morgan...where are you getting that info from. I've heard Kevin include Dogma and J&SBSB in the "Jersey Trilogy." Multiple times he said that J&SBSB was the last "Jersey movie."

    Kevin Smith has said multiple times that the concept was originally to have a Jersey Trilogy, beginning with Clerk ending with Chasing Amy. Then the trilogy became 4 movies, then the final 5th movie Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Jersey Girl will be his first movie outside the View Askew universe and will not contain any characters from his other movies.
