Kevin Smith Says Clerks III Is Done, Teases Release Date


1994 employee remains one of the greatest indie success stories of all time. Although it was made in black and white for Peanuts and filmed in the convenience stores where Kevin Smith actually worked, word of mouth grew quickly and it was picked up by Miramax and eventually became a worldwide hit after its home release. Now, nearly thirty years later, Smith is finally teasing the long-awaited release of Employees III.

At WonderCon, when asked when the sequel will be out, the filmmaker replied:

“This fall, I don’t think anything is official, but… they referenced the fall. At one point they were talking about July and I’ll be honest with you, it’s nowhere near a summer movie. This makes it feel better for fall. Early fall, I heard. But yes, it’s coming and it’s damn good. But I’ve seen the film, it’s finished. We handed it over to Lionsgate and now the marketing has started. It turned out wonderful.”

In a fun echo of the original, everything we’ve heard about Employees III indicates that it will loosely dramatize aspects of Smith’s real life, particularly the 2018 heart attack that nearly killed him. This seems to have been a life-changing moment for the director, which led to him becoming a strict vegan and losing a lot of weight.

Employees III will see Jeff Anderson’s Randal Parks also suffer a heart attack and decide his life needs a change of direction. This will apparently lead him to make an indie film about the misery of working in retail that will obviously fit in well with the original film.

Smith is on a major creative surge after his recovery. Aside from his upcoming movie, he has created master of Universe: revelation for Netflix and appeared as Merv Pumpkinhead in the audio book by Neil Gaiman The Sandman. And of course he still puts out some very funny podcasts too, with his last one being hugely entertaining Jay & Silent Bob are getting old with Jason Mewes.

More on an exact release date for Employees III when we hear it. We hope to get a trailer soon.
