Kevin Smith is teaming up with Secret Network to release his new film, “Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie,” as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The move will make the cult filmmaker one of the first major Hollywood names to experiment with the blockchain-based digital collectibles craze.

“Jay and Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie” is a mix of live action and animation that follows the stoner duo as they attempt to stop an evil corporation from destroying their beloved Bluntman and Chronic comic book franchise.

Smith has been a vocal advocate of NFTs in recent weeks, calling them “the future of the entertainment industry” in a recent interview.

It’s not yet clear how Smith will release the film as an NFT, but it’s possible that viewers will be able to purchase digital copies of the movie that live on the blockchain.

Smith isn’t the only filmmaker experimenting with NFTs. Last week, “The Lego Movie” director Phil Lord announced that he would be releasing an NFT version of his film.

And earlier this month, “The Matrix” co-creator Lilly Wachowski announced that she would be releasing an NFT version of her classic sci-fi film.

As NFT mania continues to sweep the world of art and entertainment, it’s likely that we’ll see more major creators experiment with the technology in the coming weeks and months.
