Kevin Smith has completed the first draft of Clerks III!

May. 13, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Not often do I come across any awesome tidbits on Instagram, but today was the exception. It seems that Kevin Smith has completed his first draft of CLERKS III. I was going to say "Snootchie Bootchies" then I just think of what Jay says in CHASING AMY: "'Snootchie-bootchies'. Who talks like that? That's baby-talk."

Smith also posted the pic of the finished script on Facebook along with these words: "IT IS ACCOMPLISHED! CLERKS III, FIRST DRAFT! At 137 pages, it plays like THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK of what's now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am SO in love with it. Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used on the original CLERKS. Both the old clapboard and the old filmmaker are ready to go back to Jersey for the last time..."

What treasures does this script for the final installment hold? Will Jay strip down? Will Randall not offend anyone? (That's hilarious.) Can we anticipate the return of Pillow Pants who is now working at RST Video? Or will we go back to our roots? At the end of CLERKS II, we saw that Dante had re-opened the Quick Stop for Jay and Silent Bob to loiter outside of once more. Don't forget that Becky (Rosario Dawson) accepted Dante's proposal. If I don't see her again, I might cry. Wait, if this is THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK of the CLERKS trilogy does that mean it's the best one? I'm sure you guys will insert your own witty responses to that comment.

I'm excited. That is all.

Extra Tidbit: Can I help with the soundtrack? Pretty please...

Awesome, both Clerks movies, and all Kevin Smith comedies are awesome. I also loved Red State and that being said I would love to see Kevin Smith do a full blown horror movie.

Bringing it Back....

I have enjoyed all of what Kevin Smith has done, so I am really looking forward to Clerks III. If this is or will be his last film then I hope that it is as awesome as his previous efforts! Good luck to you sir!

Clerks 2

Clerks was a smart, era-defining film. Clerks 2 was a cluster of [link] trash. As a huge fan of the View Askew Universe, I don't want a third installment.

by the way, i'm not suppose to be here today.

at this point.......

at this point...WHO GIVES A RATS ASS ANYMORE ABOUT CLERKS???? Really?? Kevin Smith sits on his fat ass way too much to actually know how to handle making a movie anymore....If he actually stayed put directing films every year then his chops would be up, but c'mon its over....ITS OVER

I like all of the View Askew movies, so I'm happy Smith is returning to that universe. Hope it turns out well.

Saw Mallrats in the theater . . .

after I laughed my ass off watching Clerks on VHS. If you didn't discover Kevin Smith in the mid 90s then you probably don't give a shit, but in his day Smith's twisted humor, pop culture observations and witty dialogue were a breath of fresh air. I will be there for Clerks 3.

Hell yeah! I'd want nothing more than return to the Askewniverse one last time. I hope the Weinsteins come to their senses and green light this thing.

It's all in good fun. Not everyone likes the same stuff I do, and that's okay.

This is exciting stuff! I feel as though Kevin Smith works the best when his stories revolved around the View Askew Universe. I remember going to the theatres to see Clerks 2 and at the end everyone applauded. It was a movie moment I'll never forget. Clerks 3, bring it on!

Clearly in the minority, as I didn't think Clerks 2 was particularly funny or poignant, but that doesn't mean Smith isn't capable of making a great flick.

Barf

How many times is this guy gonna tell people that his latest film is the greatest thing he/anyone has ever done and have them buy it? Said it about CLERKS 2: It was terrible. Said it about Red State: It was terrible. This is the end of the road for Smith. No one wants to finance relentless failure. He is going back to he CLERKS well a third time because it is the only thing he could do that might still draw an audience.

I don't care for Smith's films or for what I know of him personally so

I don't care for Smith's films or for what I know of him personally so I will be glad when he is gone...which will be never because if you seriously think his "retirement" is anything but another attention grab by one of the world's largest (literally) attention whores then you are deluded.

See you for CLERKS 4: LOOK AT ME, GODDAMMIT! in 2019! It will be the best thing he has ever done!

Relentless failure? His track record has been financially positive.

By whose standards? If you mean took in a few, FEW dollars more than their budget then I guess you are technically correct. Since Clerks his successes have been at best pretty modest. But all film makers have flops. All of them. His films also fail to garner any critical recognition or award nominations.

The fact that I dislike Smith's work probably has more to do with him than his films. I love dumb comedies. Love them. I just find Smith to be an insufferable, narcissistic, petulant,

I just find Smith to be an insufferable, narcissistic, petulant, delusional brat. He got that first hit of acclaim on CLERKS and has been chasing it his whole career. He is bitter as fuck that mainstream critics/audiences don't respect him or his films. If you doubt that feel free to google him.

Was going to type this long essay about how much I enjoy this guy's work but I'll keep it short...

Very excited to see what Clerks III brings to the closing of the View Askew Universe. It's crazy I remember seeing Clerks & Clerks 2 for the first time now we're going to finally see the closing to the story. Feel old.

I just hope that Smith delivers after all the back and forth that has led up to this film.
