As we have seen in recent days, Clerks III is already on the fast track to production, with Kevin Smith doing table readings with the cast ahead of the director’s plans to start filming as early as next week. Recently, it was announced that Lionsgate had picked up the long-running project with Smith returning to lead the sequel. It was also confirmed that all the original cast members would return with production scheduled to start in August.
On Instagram, Kevin Smith posted a picture of himself with several of Office holders and Clerks II stars that we see in Clerk III. The picture was taken right after everyone had read the script aloud together for the first time, and after the smile on Smith’s face, he seems to be very happy with how it turned out. It sounds like old school Office holders fans will also be happy as Smith plagued the interactions to come between Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson as Dante and Randal.
“We read the Clerks III script aloud today for the first time and holy f – k it was brilliant! Brian O’Halloran, Jeff Anderson, Jay Mewes, Trevor Fehrman, Jen Schwalbach, Austin Zajur and I’m all in #newjersey with a week back before we roll the cameras so we gathered at the table and read the movie we were making! Hearing Dante and Randal jump off each other again was insanely wonderful for the guy who wrote the words they said. was so excellent. I write to their voices – so to hear them professionally bend what was meant for their fictitious colleagues to say was an unfounded joy! “
Smith also took a moment to address the recent controversy he faced with his Netflix series Masters of the Universe: Revelation. The filmmaker admitted that he could otherwise be bummed over some of the negative reactions that the series has drawn from He-Man fans, he just can not be anything but ecstatic right now after reviewing Office Holders III script with the cast.
“I know a lot of people on the Internet hate me right now Masters of the Universe: Revelation, so I should be bummed. But it’s hard to be bummed when a dream you’ve nurtured for seven years comes true before your eyes! Thank you, Lionsgate, for giving good friends with deep ties a new reason (and the means) to pretend again! I have done the best work of my life with the people in this picture – and now that I have heard the first reading of Office Holders III? I am ready to do more of the same! (Missing from this sample, but not from our hearts: Rosario Dawson and Marilyn Ghigliotti.) “
Inspired by Smith’s own real heart attack, Office Holders III will follow Randal (Jeff Anderson) and Dante (Brian O’Halloran), who are making a film about their lives as Quick Stop clerks, after Randal had an almost fatal heart attack. Smith has been hoping to get a third Clerks film for years, but Anderson had not been interested in repeating the role of Randal until recent years.
Filming Office Holders III starts next week in early August. An official release date has not yet been announced by Lionsgate. This news comes to us from Kevin Smith on Instagram.
