Anyone else remember 1994? Back when we all thought Kevin Smith was cool? Yeah, me either. It’s now 2022 and Smith is back, again, with Clerks III.
Clerks took us to the Quick Stop in 1994. Then we all went back again, with a sequel in 2006. There were even two spin offs for Jay & Silent Bob. Smith isn’t done with everyone at the convenience store, since Clerks III is due out.
In this third movie:
“Dante, Elias, and Jay and Silent Bob are enlisted by Randal after a heart attack to make a movie about the convenience store that started it all.”
The story is semi-autobiographical about what Smith went through when he suffered a heart attack of his own. This time it’s Randal that gets the heart attack and inspires him to make a movie, rather than just watching them. He enlists the help of the other Quick Stoppers to make it.
The way Clerks III is being made, it looks like it’s going to show how the original Clerks movie was made to close out the trilogy. Well, unless it makes money, then I am sure we can expect more.
Most of the original cast are back. Jeff Anderson, Brian O’Halloran, Jason Mewes, Smith, Rosario Dawson and more. The movie is being written and directed by Smith. Clerks III is due out some time in September 2022.
