Wanna Read? Smith Finishes the First Draft of 'Clerks III' Screenplay

Clerks 3

Too bad! You've got to be friends with Kevin Smith, or his agent/manager, if you want to read this. But it's done. Kevin Smith took to his Facebook to post a photo of his finished Clerks III script. Back in March we posted the first photo of the very first page of his work on the script, now ~66 days later it's finished. His message about the news states: "At 137 pages, it plays like The Empire Strikes Back of what's now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am SO in love with it." Awesome to hear. Though that is a very long script, but Clerks II did end up with a 97 minute runtime, he can still condense and revise things. See the photo below!

Smith writes: "IT IS ACCOMPLISHED! CLERKS III, FIRST DRAFT!" Photo below in full from Facebook:

Kevin Smith - Clerks III Script

Seen above: "Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used on the original CLERKS [in 1994]. Both the old clapboard and the old filmmaker are ready to go back to Jersey for the last time…" Kevin Smith goes on to also include a comment about his SModCast Live Shows and encourages fans to attend and "simply ask 'How's CLERKS III coming?'" Great way to keep him on track and get constant updates about the film, which it sounds like might actually start shooting this year. Who would've thought we'd actually see this? After all the chatter about Smith ending his filmmaker career who two hockey movies, it's surprising but admittedly exciting to see him return to his roots to finish the what-has-become-a-trilogy that started it all.

    Although most of his films aren't great by any means, a few are. I'm looking at you Dogma, Clerks, and (above those previous) Chasing Amy. I've never straightout disliked a Smith film, enjoying all of them for what they are. Here's to hoping this one is great!!!!

    137? Not bad... Probably going to be around a 95 min movie. Looking forward to it, nonetheless.
