Kevin Smith Announces Clerks 3 with Jeff Anderson

I cannot wait to show you how it all ends!
— Kevin Smith

Kevin Smith took to social media today to announce that Clerks 3 is back on thanks to a private signing of movie props and memorabilia in celebration of the Clerks 25th Anniversary put together by Leeloo Multiprops.

3 CLERKS! Thanks to the good folks at @leeloomultiprops, I got to see Randal! #JeffAnderson, @jaymewes, and I spent Saturday signing stuff and catching up, seeing so much movie merch that's been made over the last 25 years (hit the Leloo site for sweet signed skateboards)! But even better than that? We talked about making a movie together. It'll be a movie that concludes a saga. It'll be a movie about how you're never too old to completely change your life. It'll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future. It'll be a movie that brings us back to the beginning - a return to the cradle of civilization in the great state of #newjersey. It'll be a movie that stars Jeff and @briancohalloran, with me and Jay in supporting roles. And it'll be a movie called CLERKS III! To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return. And we're all gonna return to the scene of the crime! This won't be the old script we almost made a few years back: this is a completely new screenplay that I just started writing last night! And so far, it's like a dream come true! After mending fences with @benaffleck earlier this year, I was hoping for a chance to do the same with Jeff - so huge thanks to Leeloo Multiprops for getting us all in the same room. But the biggest thanks ever go to Jeff, for being receptive to the idea at all. This means I'm gonna get to play with my two favorite inaction figures again: Dante & Randal! Two weeks from the debut of @jayandsilentbob Reboot (on @fathomevents screens 10/15 & 10/17, link in my bio), I'm ecstatic to announce our imminent return to Quick Stop! So I assure you: we're open! #KevinSmith #clerks3 #jaymewes #jayandsilentbob #danteandrandal #quickstop #leeloomultiprops #indiefilm #clerks

The private signing event held on Saturday, September 28th by Leeloo Multiprops was in itself a year-and-a-half in the making according to co-owner Ashley DiGennaro.

“We all love Clerks and with the 25th anniversary coming up we wanted the Unicorns of the View Askew-niverse,” said DiGennaro. “We wanted Jeff Anderson.“

Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes, and Jeff Anderson were able to spend time together in the same room Tthanks to the efforts of Leeloo Multiprops and ZSC Entertainment. The three were assembled to sign both fan memorabilia and props sent to them for signing as well as unique items offered for sale via the Leeloo Multiprops web site. “If it wasn’t for ZSC Entertainment helping us organize all three people,” said DiGennaro, “it wouldn’t have happened!”

When asked by Smodcast News how it felt to know that Clerks 3 was now a reality, Smith said, “Clerks III coming back to life feels like a fairy tale come to life. But since Clerks itself felt like a fairy tale come to life, it stands to reason. I cannot wait to show you how it all ends!”

Clerks 3 has been in the news recently when fans were treated to a special charity event reading of Smith’s original Clerks 3 script to help raise money for the First Avenue Playhouse in Atlantic Highlands, New Jersey back in August. The First Avenue Playhouse had a key role in the history of both Kevin Smith and Clerks as the location where auditions were held for the original Clerks and the charity event featured some of the film’s original cast. Prior to the reading, Smith described this version of the Clerks 3 script as "the 'King Lear' of View Askew movies."

“This won’t be the old script we almost made a few years back,” Smith shared in this new Clerks 3 announcement. “This is a completely new screenplay that I just started writing last night!”

This announcement is great news for Kevin Smith fans just two weeks prior to seeing Clerks alumni characters Jay and Silent Bob return to the big screen in Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. To get tickets to see Jay & Silent Bob Reboot check out the Fathom Events screenings at a theater near you on October 15th and 17th and see special screenings through the Jay & Silent Bob Reboot Roadshow that starts October 19th.
