So I guess it’s really happening.
Posted to the image sharing site Imgur this morning was the title page for the first draft of the script for Clerks III. Writer/director Kevin Smith posted the screencap this morning, saying that he “jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing Clerks III.”
Well if that’s not enough nerd news to feed on this Friday, consider Smith’s next statement. “[A]fter 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.”
I think I speak for us all when I say we the fandom will reserve judgment on that. Come to think of it, I seem to remember Smith once saying the same thing about Hit Somebody, and we all know what happened there.
What I will say is that at least there’s progress on Clerks III and I guess we’ll find out soon if Smith was able to get past a couple of pages. And interestingly, does this solve the Jeff Anderson riddle? If Smith is now punching out the script, is Anderson officially on board now?
More news as it develops.
