Writer/director Kevin Smith has today confirmed he has completed the first draft for his new script for ‘Clerks III‘. This is a new version of the script after a previous version from six years ago was scrapped due to a variety of casting issues. Smith announced in October 2019 that he was working on a new script as well as announcing lead actor Jeff Anderson (Randal) was back on-board.
Kevin shared the news in a typically lenghty facebook page where he also shared the first page of the script:
Anderson was previously rumoured to be the reason why a previous attempt to make Clerks 3 had stalled. However in his post for october 2019 Kevin says
“We talked about making a movie together”
Kevin also mentions rewriting the script from the previous version. He held script readings of the original Clerks 3 script previously in New Jersey.
Although Smith is writing the Script and Anderson appears to be on board, production on the film has yet to be officially confirmed .
