Kevin Smith wants to take “Clerks 3″ to Broadway

John Mulhern

March 29th, 2012

CLERKS was a big part of what really got me into film. Yeah, I know. It's totally a cliche choice to pick for that, but it is still true. I remember watching the movie whenever I was far too young, repeatedly, and as I got older my appreciation only grew more. Then CLERKS 2 came out, and it gave us a better look at what these characters were like ten years later, trying to figure out their thirties.

Although Kevin Smith's filmmaking career is coming to an end, he claims he isn't out of stories. Now he says that a Clerks 3 could happen, but on Broadway.

His story is pretty funny actually, and I can certainly see Jeff Anderson, who plays Randal in the films, taking the approach Smith tells. I actually think that Clerks would fit really well on Broadway. I mean, most of the original film takes place behind the counter at the Quick Stop, so why not have the entire story take place there? All they would need is one set. Smith has never been known for being a visual director (although RED STATE says otherwise), but he has always been a dialogue man. I think it would be a great fit.

As a Texas resident, my two cents is that he release them on Blu-ray and DVD also, much like his EVENING WITH KEVIN SMITH series, so that everyone can check it out. Smith would like to make it happen by the end of 2014, if Jeff Anderson gets on board.
