Smith Confirms “Clerks III” Is In The Works
Filmmaker Kevin Smith has confirmed that a third film in the “Clerks” series has picked up momentum again and is properly in the works.
At last report two years ago, the project had stalled indefinitely and Smith has spoken at length about his script for the feature. This week, Smith took to Instagram to reveal he’s talked with co-stars Jeff Anderson and Jason Mewes to return for one last installment and it will be the next project he works on:
“It’ll be a movie that concludes a saga. It’ll be a movie about how you’re never too old to completely change your life. It’ll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future. It’ll be a movie that brings us back to the beginning – a return to the cradle of civilization in the great state of #newjersey. It’ll be a movie that stars Jeff and @briancohalloran, with me and Jay in supporting roles. And it’ll be a movie called CLERKS III!”
Smith also confirms this won’t be the old script he almost made a few years back, rather it’s a completely new screenplay which he has just started writing. Thus there’s no idea as to when the project might be released.
Smith’s “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” will screen in cinemas in about two weeks from now via Fathom Events, with Universal Pictures Home Entertainment handling the worldwide rights.
