clerks, kevin smith, sequel

This month audiences will get to see the return of iconic Kevin Smith characters Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Smith) in JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT, and with that movie on the precipice of release, Smith announced he will return to the CLERKS series with a third and final outing. He made the news official by taking to Instagram for a photo with himself, Mewes and CLERKS star Jeff Anderson, writing how “It’ll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future.”

Take a look at Smith's post below:


3 CLERKS! Thanks to the good folks at @leeloomultiprops, I got to see Randal! #JeffAnderson, @jaymewes, and I spent Saturday signing stuff and catching up, seeing so much movie merch that’s been made over the last 25 years (hit the Leloo site for sweet signed skateboards)! But even better than that? We talked about making a movie together. 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! To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return. And we’re all gonna return to the scene of the crime! This won’t be the old script we almost made a few years back: this is a completely new screenplay that I just started writing last night! And so far, it’s like a dream come true! After mending fences with @benaffleck earlier this year, I was hoping for a chance to do the same with Jeff - so huge thanks to Leeloo Multiprops for getting us all in the same room. But the biggest thanks ever go to Jeff, for being receptive to the idea at all. This means I’m gonna get to play with my two favorite inaction figures again: Dante & Randal! Two weeks from the debut of @jayandsilentbob Reboot (on @fathomevents screens 10/15 & 10/17, link in my bio), I’m ecstatic to announce our imminent return to Quick Stop! So I assure you: we’re open! #KevinSmith #clerks3 #jaymewes #jayandsilentbob #danteandrandal #quickstop #leeloomultiprops #indiefilm #clerks

CLERKS III is a project Smith has been meaning to bring to life for some time, getting as close as having a finished script, getting ready to shoot, but with Anderson not signing on to return for more. But per Smith's post, it seems everything has been patched up between Smth and Anderson, the core cast including Brian O'Halloran is on board, and Smith has chucked out his original screenplay and has begun work on a brand new draft. 

No word on when Smith and the team will be getting ready to shoot, but it seems like the writer/director is hard at work on the script and is anxious to get things going. Meanwhile, JAY AND SILENT BOB REBOOT is gearing up for a release in theaters on October 15 and 17 through Fathom Events, with Smith and Mewes taking the movie on a roadshow tour through the rest of the year and into 2020.
