It was recently announced that Kevin Smith would start working on Clerks III, which he said would be his last film. The filmmaker has announced on his Facebook page that he has started writing the third film:
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.
He also posted a screenshot of the title page of the first draft of the script. It sounds like he's very confident that this movie is going to be great. I hope it is the best film he ever makes! I can't wait to see how it turns out!
