Fresh from the announcement that Clerks 3 would no longer be a Broadway play, but instead would become his final film as a director — followed thereupon by a counter-announcement that Clerks 3 would be a book first, then a movie — geek overlord Kevin Smith has once again made a mockery of the whole notion of Announcing Things by posting an image of what appears to the title page of the Clerks 3 screenplay.
The image was posted to Smith’s Facebook page, with an accompanying note:
THE BEGINNING OF THE END
20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.
20 years later, with no plan or provocation, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III.
It’s been like hanging out with old friends.
And after 2 hours of tapping the keys and giggling, I have come to a conclusion…
CLERKS III will be the best film I’ll ever make
