Kevin Smith confirms Clerks III. 

That’s right — Smith has revealed that he has begun working on a script for a third installment of the franchise which debuted in 1994. 

The original film followed the goings-on at a New Jersey convenience store was Smith’s directorial debut. 

Despite having started to pen the script just the night prior, Smith had lots to say about the film set to be “a movie that concludes a saga.”

“It’ll be a movie about how you’re never too old to completely change your life,” Smith explained on the ‘gram. “It’ll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future. It’ll be a movie that brings us back to the beginning — a return to the cradle of civilization in the great state of New Jersey. It’ll be a movie that stars Jeff and Brian O’Halloran, with me and [Jason Mewes] in supporting roles. And it’ll be a movie called Clerks III! To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return. And we’re all gonna return to the scene of the crime! This won’t be the old script we almost made a few years back: this is a completely new screenplay that I just started writing last night!”

There’s no release date for the third Clerks yet.
