I just read that Kevin Smith, fresh off his Jersey Girl flop, has decided to return to where he began and make a sequel to Clerks which he is calling The Passion of the Clerks. I'm not sure how I feel about this. On one hand, I am thrilled that Smith will be again delving into the familiar territory we know and love. On the other, I am terrified that he will pull a George Lucas and needlessly trash some of my favorite movie characters...
I suppose that I should give the guy the benefit of the doubt, because I loved the Clerks animated series. And if there's even a small chance that he will approach the greatness that is Chasing Amy, then perhaps it's worth the risk? But can we at least get rid of the cheesy "Passion" title? South Park already beat you to it, so it's just lame now.
It's just a little over a week until my Clerks: 10th Anniversary Edition DVD set gets here. That's something I have no mixed feelings about... I can't wait!
I love comments! However, all comments are moderated, and won't appear until approved. Are you an abusive troll with nothing to contribute? Don't bother. Selling something? Don't bother. Spam linking? Don't bother.
But will it be with or without “Jay and Bob”?
I’m sure Jay & Silent Bob will be there! Wouldn’t be Clerks without them. 🙂
But Kevin Smith made such a big deal saying they would never be in another movie. But recently he said if Jason Mewes got clean he would bring them back.
On the same note some what, have you seen An Evening with Kevin Smith, it is so great!
Ah, but he made those claims BEFORE Jersey Girl completely tanked! 🙂 I have seen the Kevin Smith video, and own it on DVD. I think they are coming out with another one soon.
