Mention the name of actor Jason Mewes and it's impossible not to think of his signature role of Jay from Kevin Smith's Clerks and its various spin-offs, a character he is set to reprise in Smith's upcoming Jay and Silent Bob Reboot.

Before then, Mewes is making his directorial debut with Method in the Madness, a meta-comedy in which he plays a fictional version of himself, taking drastic measures to escape the shadow of Jay.

Mewes has assembled quite the ensemble cast for his debut, with the likes of Kevin Smith, Stan Lee, Gina Carano, Vinnie Jones, Teri Hatcher, Dean Cain, Danny Trejo, Zach Galligan and Caspar Van Dien featuring.

FrightFest presents the European Premiere of Madness in the Method on 24 August at 8.45pm in the Arrow Video Screen and 9.15pm in the Horror Channel Screen at the Cineworld Leicester Square.

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Buckle up for a hilarious thrill-ride, as Jason Mewes (one half of iconic comedy duo Jay and Silent Bob) delivers murder, madness and meta-moviemaking in his star-powered directorial debut.

The only way to survive in Hollywood is to toughen up, or embrace insanity! At least that’s the advice Kevin Smith passes on to his best friend Jason Mewes, problem is, Smith was joking about the latter…

No longer content being known only as Jay from Jay and Silent Bob, Jason takes matters into his own hands and hatches a plan to change people’s perception of him in the movie business. Did the plan involve a killing spree, a wide scale police investigation and international press scrutiny? Probably not, but whatever works, right? Can Jason get away with murder and climb his way to the top of Hollywood or is it all just the fantastical ‘mewesings’ of an insane ex drug addict?
