Kevin Smith has revealed on Facebook that the first draft of his long-gestating slacker sequel,
, is finally complete.
“IT IS ACCOMPLISHED!” revealed the writer / director on the social networking site. “First draft of CLERKS III is 137 pages. Plays like the EMPIRE STRIKES BACK of what's now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am SO in love with it.”
As recently as February, Smith had suggested that the second sequel might take the form of a comic-book or an online series, but it sounds as though the project is destined for the big screen once more.
“"Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used on the original CLERKS,” continued Smith. “Both the old clapboard and the old filmmaker are ready to go back to Jersey for the last time.”
No release date has been announced as yet, but it sounds as though the wheels are very much in motion for one last trip through the View Askewniverse...
