Kevin Smith Indie Biopic 'Shooting Clerks' Debuts First Teaser Trailer

March 30, 2015

Shooting Clerks

While Kevin Smith is rounding up the cast to shoot Mallrats 2 next year, right now he's getting ready to shoot Clerks 3. And coincidentally, this fall will bring a biopic about how the filmmaker launched his career with the original Clerks, an indie hit at Sundance in 1993. Shooting Clerks will feature familiar faces like Smith himself, Jason Mewes, Brian O’Halloran, Scott Mosier, Walter Flanagan and more, but they won't be playing the character's from Smith's film or even themselves. Instead an unknown cast is bringing to life these characters in the story of how Clerks came to be, and a teaser trailer has just arrived. It looks like a student film, but in a charming way, and seems to be something that Smith's fans will enjoy. Watch?

Here's the teaser trailer for Christopher Downie's Shooting Clerks from ScreenRant:

Shooting Clerks

Shooting Clerks is written and directed by Christopher Downie. The film is based on the early career of filmmaker Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back) and tells the true story of how a twenty-something convenience store clerk turned his mundane life into a cinematic work of fiction that became a hit at the 1993 Sundance film Festival and launched a career that's still going today. Matt Frost stars in the film as Kevin Smith, while the director and several Clerks stars will appear in the film in small roles. The film is set to debut at the Toronto International Film Festival but has no official release date yet.

It would be better if it were literally Kevin Smith, Jason Mewes and the rest of the gang on the set "Shooting Clerks". This is just lame.

Exactly. Should have made a documentary instead of this shit re-enactment.
