Kevin Smith Gets SAG Waiver To Film ‘The 4:30 Movie’

Kevin Smith‘s next project, a teen-centric film called The 4:30 Movie, could be a lot of fun. We know Joey is very excited for it, if nothing else. Well, luckily for him, Smith is going to be able to start making it a lot sooner than expected, as the strike won’t be affecting his impending production.

According to, Smith has gotten a SAG waiver to shoot the film. One new detail has emerged, in that Austin Zajur will be starring. The movie centers on a group of teenagers theater-hopping during one day in the 1980s. It’s a fun premise, very much up Smith’s alley, and the SAG alongside WGA strikes won’t be an issue. Prepare for another collision course between Joey and Kevin Smith perhaps sometime next year.
