Clerks III (D: Kevin Smith)

Clerks III will be his final film





I guess Clerks 3 is official now, even though everybody saw it coming.



It won't be his last movie.

I thought he was retiring after the hockey movie.

Hockey movie is now going to be a mini series.

Re: Clerks III (Smith, Sometime this Decade)

Honestly, I'd rather see him doing more films like Red State and less films like Clerks III, but, hey, whatever. The film world will move on quickly.

And please, for the love of all that is holy (and the sake of my eyes), don't cast your goddamn wife. You might think she's hot, the world begs to differ.

from the article...

But with recent news that Hit Somebody will be made as a miniseries for television instead, Smith can still make another feature film without going back on his word…
Hopefully he doesn't try to do too much with it and he sends Randall and Dante back to the Quik-Stop where it all started.

Re: Clerks III (Smith, Sometime this Decade)

I was disappointed in Clerks 2, but still get a lot of entertainment value out of Dante and Randall. I've given up on Smith ever making another film with the same tone as Chasing Amy, but I'll be very interested in seeing another movie about the clerks. Shame Jay and Silent Bob will have to be in it as well.

Clerks 2 is up there with Mallrats as one of my favorite Kevin Smith films.

Kevin Smith will never again reach the peak that was Chasing Amy.

I rather enjoyed Clerks II, so I'll naturally be looking forward to III.

Re: Clerks III (Smith, Sometime this Decade)

I have mixed feelings on Smith as a director but I enjoyed both Clerks movies so far. The first one is better but I didn't mind the second one. That being said I'll probably see a third if it happens.

Not sure if it's a peak or a mole hill, but I agree with this. Chasing Amy is my favorite movie of his.

Re: Clerks III (Smith, Sometime this Decade)

I wish Smith would have done more movies like Chasing Amy as well, although I guess he tried the more personal drama thing later with Jersey Girl and failed pretty poorly. Although the Ben and Jennifer Lopez thing might have had a worse effect on that movie.

I don't mind seeing a Clerks 3 though, I still like Smith's humor enough to get enjoyment out of his comedy. Even if I thought Clerks 2 was a bit of a let down too.

I loved both Clerks movies. I hope this is just on par with those.

I would like to see another one. I liked both equally.

Yeah. Despite the great Darth Vader rant, Chasing Amy was pretty boring.

Personally I think the story of Chasing Amy is good but the movie itself has aged horribly.
