Kevin Smith has started writing ‘Clerks 3,’ calls it ‘the best film I’ll ever make’
Fresh from the announcement that Clerks 3 would no longer be a Broadway play, but instead would become his final film as a director — followed thereupon by a counter-announcement that Clerks 3 would be a book first, then a movie — geek overlord Kevin Smith has once again made a mockery of the whole notion of Announcing Things by posting an image of what appears to the title page of the Clerks 3 screenplay.
The image was posted to Smith’s Facebook page, with an accompanying note:
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
Little is known about the Clerks threequel, although back in December Smith told EW that the film he’s conceived is “more Cinema Paradiso than anything else.”
