Filmmaker Kevin Smith says that a sequel to his much loved and debated 1999 comedy “Dogma” will never happen.
In 2005, Smith revealed a sequel idea he had which was to feature the apocalypse within the third act, but was hesitant about turning that idea into an actual film.
Smith hasn’t really said much more about the idea since then, and at a Q&A session held on Thursday at New York Comic-Con (via Screenrant), he firmly closed down the possibility of it happening:
“F–k no. I don’t think we need a Dogma 2. And I am sure as shit not going near any religious movies at this point.”
The original followed a woman (Linda Fiorentino) who is the last descendant of Jesus Christ and is tasked by Metatron (Alan Rickman) to prevent banished angels Bartleby (Ben Affleck) and Loki (Matt Damon) from using a religious loophole to re-enter Heaven, thus proving God (Alanis Morrisette) fallible and ending all of existence. Jason Mewes, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Jason Lee, and George Carlin also starred.
