    Kevin Smith says he is bowing out being a director / writer with his final film, Clerks 3 in 2014, going back to b/w style as the original 1994 movie.

    I've mixed feelings about this. I'm thinking do we really need another Clerks but I'm also thinking I'd love to see Jay and Silent Bob again.

    hmm wonder what his motives are for quitting, and what he will move onto, if anything?

    it's cool he's going out the way he started, i hope he does a good job just!

    Never a big fan of Clerks 1 or 2 to be honest, but Jay & Silent Bob, now we're talking. Loved J&SBSB & Mallrats.

    Rather have a J&SBSB2 OR Mallrats2. :smashin:

    His lack of progression in the last twenty years?

    I mean, c'mon, I'm a big Smith fan but the guy hasn't really made a better film than Clerks even with a budget. I have a soft spot for most of the Askewniverse films, and even Jersey Girl, but Zack and Miri did nothing for me and Red State was crap. I really like his stand-up, so I hope he continues to do shows like that along with his writing and associated work. He's really talented, but it's almost like he let's his 'fat guy' persona limit his output. Honestly, there's pretty much a direct correlation between the shortcomings of his films and the stuff he talks about in his live shows. I respect him for that though, because at least he has the balls to talk about it.

    I'd love to Smith allowed to make a comic book film, I think his live for it would shine through as long as the studios didnt getbit the way. Ill take Clerks 3 although I'd rather see a Jay and Silent BoB 2

    I didn't really rate the first clerks but loved the second one. Jay and Silent Bob are tremendous though and highlights of the movies.

    We'll see what the third one comes up with I suppose.
