Clerks 3 Is Coming.


Kevin Smith’s long awaited Clerks 3 is coming for you, thanks to his horror film ‘Tusk’ which is currently in theatres. (Starring Justin Long! Becoming a ….walrus!)

‘Tusk’ was the absolute bridge to ‘Clerks III,’” Smith said during Friday’s “Hollywood Babble-On,” his weekly live podcast. “Because of ‘Tusk’ I got my financing for ‘Clerks III.’”

“Tusk” stars Justin Long (“Accepted”) as a podcaster who ventures to a secluded location in Canada by himself to interview a seafarer, played by Michael Parks (“Red State”), who is obsessed with walruses, and wants to turn Long’s character into one.

After 10 days in theaters, “Tusk” has only managed to make $1.4 million, and has received mostly negative reviews. It must, however, have at least one very wealthy fan, because he’s managed to fund a movie that The Weinstein Company — which produced “Clerks II” and owns the rights to the franchise — refused to finance for $6 million, but agreed to distribute.

“A year and change ago I was desperately trying to get ‘Clerks III’ made for the 20th anniversary and that desperation — I must have reeked of it because I couldn’t f–king find money and shit,” Smith said during the podcast at the Hollywood Improv. “But it was ‘Tusk,’ people going ‘Holy f–k, what else do you have?’ and I was like ‘Clerks III’ and they’re like ‘done’. So, everybody that’s like, ‘He failed, he failed,’ I’m like ‘Thank you, I failed into doing ‘Clerks III.’”

I cannot wait for Clerks 3. It feels like so long ago that Clerks 2 came out. I didn’t have any kids then! Weird. I even got to see it in the theatre. In the middle of the day. In a double feature with ‘Lady in the Water’. I’m dating myself, here.
