Kevin Smith’s Last Film Might Now Be Clerks III
In August, Kevin Smith said he was going to split his final film, Hit Somebody, into two movies. But it appears he couldn't stop splitting and the next thing he knew, he didn't have a movie anymore but a miniseries. This left a vacancy in his "final film" slot, until today, when he tweeted: "So with the HIT SOMEBODY shift, the minute Jeff Anderson signs on, my last cinematic effort as a writer/director will be CLERKS III. #TaDa" Ultimately, Smith's legacy is tied to the films inside that universe, so this sounds like a perfect last hoorah. Snooch to the nooch.
makes sense to end his film career on something he started with, loved the first two. although in a vid I saw he seemed 'over it' and said though he probably won't be quiting directing all together, just big budget cinema releases. he may direct TV pilots or something. but Clerks will be his last theatrical release, just like Clerks was his first.
if he's true to his word, this would be out in 2014 since its the 20th Anniversary for Clerks.
