I’m not sure if I should be really scared at the idea of Kevin Smith writing Clerks III. On one hand perhaps the man has a few ideas left, while on the other I’m assuming that he’s simply mashing half-cooked ideas onto the keyboard, smoothing things out as he goes aka adding lots of filler.
The idea that Clerks III is inching closer and closer to production is such a confusing one. I know Smith has mentioned his hockey epic Hit Somebody, but I’m still banking on Clerks III being his final sendoff film, which sucks, because Clerks II wrapped things up just fine, at least for the core characters.
Smith released this quote on his Facebook page:
THE BEGINNING OF THE END
20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.
20 years later, with no plan or provocation, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III.
It’s been like hanging out with old friends.
And after 2 hours of tapping the keys and giggling, I have come to a conclusion…
CLERKS III will be the best film I’ll ever make.
