Kevin Smith has started his talk show tour promoting his upcoming film, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, and while a film release is enough to keep anyone busy, Smith has revealed over the last few days some exciting news for him and his fans around the world.
It wasn’t all that long ago Kevin announced Clerks 3 was happening. Only for one of the main actors to not sign on for it thus destroying the dreams of many fans. But now, with a new script in development and the cast apparently ready to jump in. Seems like it’s going to happen now. (See his instagram post below)

3 CLERKS! Thanks to the good folks at @zscentertainment and @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
Hollywood Walk of Fame
It’s finally happening! Kevin Smith and, his heterosexual life mate, Jason Mewes are going to be immortalized on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Talking about how 40 years ago he and his family visited Hollywood and took pictures next to R2-D2’s & C-3PO’s foot prints he said this…
“Something really magical happened to us. On the day of the premiere, we get to go to TCL Chinese Theater in Los Angeles and put our handprints in the cement. Me and Jay are bringing Jersey!”– Kevin Smith
Kevin is more than deserving of this honor. it’s nice to see that he is finally recognized for his work not just Hollywood but the pop-culture community as well.
