Kevin Smith announces Clerks 3
Kevin Smith announces that Hit Somebody is set to be a TV mini-series, and Clerks III is now the last film he's going to direct...
It was around the time that he made and promoted Red State, back in January 2011, that Kevin Smith announced he would be retiring from directing movies. His last film? That was set to be his ice hockey movie, Hit Somebody.
However, Smith has now announced a change of plans. That's because Hit Somebody is set to become a six-part television mini-series instead, with hour-long scripts for each episode in place. And that means a change in what his final film is set to be. So what's his movie directorial swansong?
In the words of the man himself, "So with the HIT SOMEBODY shift, the minute Jeff Anderson signs on, my last cinematic effort as a writer/director will be CLERKS III."
Which seems quite fitting, really. We're huge fans of Clerks and Clerks II, and Smith will be ending his film directing career with the same characters he started it with. It'll be a hell of a boxset when it's all done, too.
