Smith Considers Revisiting Dogma With Morissette As God
The beloved director has posted a blog on his website, explaining he has been inspired to revisit his 1999 movie, which starred Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, by events since the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
He writes, "The worst terrorist attack on American soil was religiously bent. In the wake of said attack, the leader of the Free World (George W Bush) outed himself as pretty damned Christian.
"In the last election, rather than a quagmire war abroad, the big issue was whether or not gay marriage was moral.
"Back when I made Dogma, I always maintained that another movie about religion wouldn't be forthcoming, as Dogma was the product of 28 years of religious and spiritual meditation, and I'd kinda shot my wad on the subject.
"Now? I think I might have more to say. And, yes, the Last Scion would be at the epicenter (sic) of it. And she'd have to be played by Alanis. And we'd need a bigger budget - because the entire third act would be the Apocalypse.
"The scary thing is this: the film would have to touch on Islam, and... when those cats don't like what you do, they issue a death warrant on yer (sic) a*s."
