So we all know that Kevin Smith is finishing off Yoga Hosers, then he’s back to the Mall for Mallrats 2 (Mallbrats?) but after that, will he be returning to where it all began with our favourite Clerks?
Well, it looks like it may be a slightly more straight-faced affair than Clerks or Clerks II: “I wrote Clerks 3 like a King Lear movie in a convenience store. It’s funny, but it’s f—ing sad.”
Pretty heavy stuff, given that Lear is the story of a King who goes insane after giving land to his daughters, you know, typical Shakespearean stuff.
How exactly this would apply to Clerks is anyone’s guess… Randal goes mad after losing part of the Quick-Stop, perhaps? Who knows… all we know is that no matter what Smith says, it will be a fun trip. And it’s Dante and Randal, what’s not to love?
Clerks will (possibly) be Smith’s next project after Mallrats 2. And that’s just fine with us.
