Director Kevin Smith plans 'Clerks' sequel


LOS ANGELES -- Kevin Smith is making another convenience store run.

The writer-director of "Dogma," "Chasing Amy" and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" told the Associated Press on Friday that he has begun work on a sequel to "Clerks," his homemade indie classic from 1994.

That $27,000 movie, shot at night in a store where Smith worked, chronicled the adventures of Dante and Randal, two guys who talk about life, death, sex and movies while working at neighboring stores.

The sequel picks up 10 years later.

"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?"

A new 10th anniversary DVD of "Clerks" debuts Sept. 7, and Smith said working on that three-disc set inspired him to write about what became of those characters.

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.

Smith is also writing the screenplay for a movie version of "The Green Hornet," but no longer thinks he will direct it. The "Clerks" movie has moved to the top of his to-do list.

He said he called Jeff Anderson, who played the combative video-store worker Randal, and Brian O'Halloran, who was the besieged-by-strangeness convenience store employee Dante, to run the idea by them first.

"Jeff was actually very protective of 'Clerks,'" Smith said. "Jeff was like, 'Are you sure you want to do this? That movie means a lot to people and do you want to go back?' I thought about it honestly, and it would seem chicken to not give it a shot just because I'm afraid of (messing) with the first film."

So far, he said he has gotten only positive responses from the people who have read the script, so he decided to move forward with it. Both O'Halloran and Anderson are signed on, and Jason Mewes, will return as stoner Jay, the "hetero life-mate" of Smith's stoic Silent Bob.

"I'm sure there will be naysayers who say, 'Oh my God, it's an opportunistic grab at a buck,' but it's not. We're doing it for nothing," Smith said. "We're going to do it insanely inexpensively. The budget will be somewhere between 250 grand and $5 million."

The original was shot pre-dawn, and most of the actors worked for free and then went straight to their day-jobs with little or no sleep.

"This time around we'll afford ourselves the luxury of nice 12-hour days," Smith said. "And people can get paid."

[ mood | aggravated ]

Hope this helps! :)

1. name (first will do), age, location: Rae, 24, Atlanta GA
2. is there anything other than the quality of his films that makes you a fan of kevin's? in all the behins the scenes stuff ive ever seen about the making of the films, it just seems like everyone who works on the movies and stuff are friends, and they all like each other. it makes me think of me and my work friends and i can relate to it.
3. how many times have you seen jersey girl? so far, once, and i liked it a lot more than i thought i was going to...or, i liked it as much as a rabid Jay and Silent Bob fan could anyway.
4. based on trailers and ads, would you have seen jersey girl if you didnt know it was a view askew film? I would have waited for it to come out on video probably
5. how did 'jay and silent bob strike back' make you feel as a fan? awesome! that movie had so much in it that it almost made up for the fact that it was their last one...almost, not quite lol.
6. have you ever met kevin? no but i want to...ive been to the stash before but he wasnt there.
7. what do you think it is that makes kevin's fan-base so loyal? because he and mewes and everyone else dont act like theyre big stars or anything, and they make fun of people that do. in every single one of smith's movies theres always something everyone can relate to no matter what the general plot or premise of the movie is.
8. what projects have you seen by kevin's "circle of friends?" (i.e. vulgar, big helium dog, tail lights fade, a better place, drawing flies) ive seen drawing flies, vulgar and thats it as far as non-jersey saga flicks. (have you seen RSVP wih Jason Mewes? It was pretty awesome because it was a remake of Rope, that Alfred Hitchcock movie.)

Hello quiet community... [31 Mar 2004|08:34pm]

[ mood | chipper ]

Wow, is EVERYONE here Silent Bob? Anyway, what does everyone think of JERSEY GIRL? I saw it and loved it, it's funny, cute, smart...a definate show of growth for Kevin as a filmmaker. Sure, it doesn't have all the dick and fart jokes, but i has heart, so, well, yeah, that doesn't make up for it, but it's a good flick.

Got my tickets to see Kev at Univeristy of Maryland. Anyone else going? It'd be nice to see if any LJ folk are in the area here.

Far too quiet here.

From PENNY ARCADE [26 Mar 2004|03:29pm]

Here's the strip, and the creators' commentary:

...Apparently Kevin Smith has sold out though, claims the chorus, for producing a film which does not refer to oral sex. The movie may be bad for any number of reasons, I honestly don't know - like many other people I have not seen it. I don't know that I ever need to. However, I'm not sure what selling out has to do with anything. I have a feeling that Kevin Smith pretty much does whatever the fuck Kevin Smith wants to do. Maybe you haven't seen Jay And Silent Fucking Bob Strike Back, where he and his friends just kind of fucked around while the cameras rolled. Oh yeah, he's a part of the fucking machine.
I have a feeling he's getting older and that he would like to make a different kind of movie than he has typically done. Yet it falls upon people who don't know the man to determine his secret heart via their infallible methods of detection and find him wanting.

The Matrix is telling my brain this is turkey jerky [14 Mar 2004|11:14pm]

Okay, remember in the CLERKS ANIMATED SERIES (episode 6) where Randal says that?
Don't you think that's not very Randal of him?...Wouldn't he say something like, "Hay I asked for BEEF jerky?"

Just wonderin' if I'm the only one who thought that.

dammit...our lil' community is sleeping. WHO'S EXCITED ABOUT JERSEY GIRL!!??? I am. I think it's funny how "Walkin' on Sunshine" is playing during the trailers on TV. It makes me laugh.

Casulties of a war they had nothing to do with? [11 Feb 2004|02:07am]

[ mood | sleepy ]

Ok, so I'm assuming that everyone out there has seen the alternate extended ending to Clerks (in which Dante is shot). So my question is: Do you guys think that this ending is more fitting, especially considering the Contractor/Death Star discussion, in which I believe Randal (I could be wrong on that one, but it's 2:30 in the morning) claims that the contractors that were necessary to complete the second Death Star were "innocent casulties of a war they had nothing to do with". Dante being shot in an act of random violence is in keeping with this idea, in my opinion. What do you guys think?

Well, I'm just joining, because like all of you, I am a big fan of Kevin Smith's works. Not to sound ridiculous, but his work, has inspired me to write my own movies, which I'm working on right now, just getting the script fleshed out. Anyways, hope to have some good conversations and meet some rad people here.

Hi Everybody [07 Feb 2004|05:42pm]

Nice [19 Jan 2004|10:52pm]

Finally saw the JERSEY GIRL trailer last night. For those who haven't seen it, it's now on Apple.com's trailers's site. Go check it out.

I have to say, i'm really looking forward to this flick. Sure, it'sa departure from Kevin, but it still looks funny, and i can't wait to see it. From the footage i saw at the Stash Bash a few months ago, to the official trailer,it just looks great.

One thing that bothers me...why does Affleck do that teeth thing in the trailer when he finds out he's gonna have a kid? It's so...scary looking.

Oh, i spotted Kevin's wife in the tariler already. Sheesh. Someone remind me to tella story from the Stash Bash that'sa little weird involving Kevin me and his Wife, if you wanna...
