Clerks 3 is in the process of being filmed, but there are many different things that may affect Clerks 3 release date. If Clerks 3 does not have a good script and does not get a high budget, it will be difficult for Clerks 3 to compete with other movies. Clerks III needs to find an audience that will support it if they want Clerks III released on time. This blog post goes into all the details about Clerks 3 filming and release date!
What about the Clerks 3 filming?
15 years after Clerks II shocked the world by being “good, actually,” writer-director Kevin Smith is finally moving ahead with Clerks III, which will start production next month after being acquired by Lionsgate.
Smith will be directing the movie from his own screenplay. He has help from Liz Destro and Jordan Monsanto. The movie is in the process of being made in New Jersey. All major cast members are set to reprise their roles, including Brian O’Halloran as Dante, Jeff Anderson as Randal, and Rosario Dawson as Becky, while Jay Mewes and Smith will once again play Jay and Silent Bob.
In Clerks III, following a massive heart attack, Randal enlists fellow clerks Dante, Elias, Jay, and Silent Bob to make a movie immortalizing his life at the convenience store that started it all. The logline seems to indicate that Trevor Fehrman will return as Clerks II scene-stealer Elias.
“There is a saying from the Tao that goes something like ‘To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return.’ Thanks to Lionsgate, we get to see the movie start again with many of the people who starred in it!” And for the first time since the first time we ever made a movie in 1993, we’re shooting the entire flick on location in New Jersey as an ode to both the enduring allure of cinema and the resourcefulness and lunacy of its storytellers. Years ago, Dante and Randal made me a filmmaker – so now it’s time I return the favor,” Smith said in a statement.
“The Clerks movies are audience favorites, and many of Kevin’s films, like Dogma, Red State, and the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, are a beloved part of our library that continues to delight Kevin’s devoted fans. We’re thrilled to be presenting the next chapter in the Clerks saga to moviegoers worldwide, added Lionsgate’s Eda Kowan, who will oversee the film for the studio.
I am happy that the Clerks movies are coming back. They are good movies. I liked them a lot. I think that it is good that there is a new movie coming out in 10 years from now because maybe they will make changes to it and perfect it. The original is a cult classic that has withstood the test of time, and I can’t wait to see how Smith decides to wrap things up.
The next thing for the filmmaker is a Netflix series about Masters of the Universe. The show will be on July 23, and it will probably be more kid-friendly than his usual content.
What are the statements made for Clerks 3 filming?
Four years after announcing the script had been complete for the project, Lionsgate has announced it has acquired the rights to Clerks III with Smith writing and directing. Set to begin shooting next month in New Jersey, the long-awaited threequel will also see the return of original stars Jeff Anderson as Randal, Brian O’Halloran as Dante, Jay Mewes as Jay, Kevin Smith as Silent Bob, and Rosario Dawson as Becky. Smith wrote in a statement:
“There’s a saying from the Tao that goes something like ‘To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return.’ Thanks to Lionsgate, we get to return to where it all started with almost the whole cast that started it all!
