Clerks 3 is heading to production

Jason Mewes and Kevin Smith reprise their roles of Jay and Silent Bob in Clerks 2.

If you’ve been spending the last 15 years wondering what happened to Jay and Silent Bob, you’re in for a treat.  The toasted duo is coming back for Clerks III.

Just announced, Lionsgate has picked up the rights to the long-gestating story of stoners and mini marts.

Smith wrote the script and will direct, with all major castmembers returning, including Jeff Anderson as Randal, Brian O’Halloran as Dante, Jay Mewes as Jay, Smith as Silent Bob, and Rosario Dawson as Becky.

Word is it will be filming by August in New Jersey.

Kevin Smith said in a statement; “There’s a saying from the Tao that goes something like ‘To be great is to go on. To go on is to go far. To go far is to return.’ Thanks to Lionsgate, we get to return to where it all started with almost the whole cast that started it all.”
