Kevin Smith Finds Funding for Clerks 3 Through Tusk

September 29th, 2014 at 08:03 by cteregis in Shows

Jay and Silent Bob fans rejoice!  It seems as though Clerks 3 is finally going to happen.

 

Kevin Smith is one of the most polarized filmmakers in the production world.  Love him or hate him, it’s hard to do anything but admire his ability to get some pretty incredible projects made.

If you would said ten years ago that Kevin Smith was going to direct a horror film about turning a man into a human walrus, we all would have laughed harder than any of us did at Cop Out.

Oddly enough, it’s due to the success of Smith’s bizarre, horror-comedy TUSK, that he has been able to find funding for the long awaited finale to the Clerks Trilogy.

A year and change ago I was desperately trying to get ‘Clerks III’ made for the 20th anniversary… I must have reeked of [desperation], because I couldn’t f–ing find money and s–t. But it was ‘Tusk,’ with people going ‘Holy f–k, what else do you have?’ I was like, ‘Clerks III!’ and they’re like. ‘Done!’ Everybody that’s like, ‘He failed, he failed!’ I’m like, ‘Thank you, I failed into Clerks III!’”

Most trilogies nowadays don’t have a production cycle of twenty years, but Smith somehow has been able to keep his extremely devoted fan base chomping at the bit since Clerks 2 released back in 2006.   At this point, it looks like actors Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson will be returning to the big screen very, very soon.

Remember folks;  Just because they serve you, doesn’t mean they like you.
