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.
Writer/director Kevin Smith posted today to his Facebook page about meeting up with Clerks cast member Jeff Anderson at a rare autograph signing session which was also attended by his costar Jason Mewes.
There have been a lot of casting announcements recently following the news that Kevin Smith would be making a sequel to his second film; Mallrats 2.
We were also told that production had been brought forward to 2015, after filming on his other major project Clerks III.
However, Smith announced today that Mallrats 2 has been pushed forward to shoot before Clerks III due to the availability of a disused mall location he wants for the film which is soon to be demolished.
