Kevin Smith talks the comedy and tragedy of Clerks 3

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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
