Good news. Kevin Smith is working on a sequel to Clerks. This is especially good news for those of you who happened to hate Jersey Girl.
- “It’s about what happens when that lazy, 20-something malaise lasts into your 30s. Those dudes are kind of still mired, not in that same exact situation, but in a place where it’s time to actually grow up and do something more than just sit around and dissect pop culture and talk about sex,” Smith said during an interview at his Hollywood office. “It’s: What happened to these dudes?”
- The sequel — titled “The Passion of the Clerks” — is set to begin shooting in January. Miramax Films, which turned the original into a cult-hit after buying it at the Sundance Film Festival, plans to distribute the follow-up.
- “It’s funny, it’s very raw, insanely foul-mouthed. In many ways it’s the antithesis of ‘Jersey Girl,”‘ Smith said, referring to his recent PG-13 comedy with Ben Affleck as the widowed father of a little girl.
I am giggling already at the fact that he is going to call it The Passion of the Clerks. Filming starts in January, so I would hope to see it by the end of next summer, but you never know with movie scheduling.
I am just hoping for more jokes about Happy Scrappy Hero Pup.
