Kevin Smith has taken a break from ranting about Bruce Willis and talking gibberish on Twitter to confirm he's started penning Clerks III, potentially his last movie.
Smith has taken something of a break from moviemaking since his cop out Cop Out and the vastly better Red State, although he has been working on an ice hockey-themed story, Hit Somebody, which he is now adapting for television.
Thus, Clerks III has become his, possiblly final, big screen adventure. Announcing the movie, Smith wrote on Twitter; "I'm goin' out like I came in: devoid of talent AND Color! #FullCircle son!"
Meanwhile on Facebook, Smith loaded up a picture showing the cover of his Clerks III script with a message that read; “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.”
Given that the original Clerks is his only genuine, bona fide movie of real quality, that's not a huge stretch (steady on - Ed). Clerks II on the other hand…
Presumably Smith will have to convince Jeff Anderson (Randall) to return, along with Brian O'Halloran (Dante) and possibly Rosario Dawson. If indeed, they fancy being at the butt of more donkey sex jokes.
