Late last year, Kevin Smith announced his impending retirement from filmmaking, presumably to do touring shows, write comics, podcast and work on his reality show. But just because he’ll be stepping back from making movies doesn’t mean he’s ready to completely give up on one of his signature creations, as the director recently shared his gestating idea to bring “Clerks 3” to the Great White Way.
Smith’s final film is currently set to be the hockey flick “Hit Somebody” in 2013, but even when announcing his planned retirement, he made sure to note that there could be a return to “Clerks” in his future. Slash Film reported the director as saying that “Clerks 3” could be a possibility, “if I have something to say in my late 40s about being in my late 40s.”
But at a recent book signing in Los Angeles, Smith revealed that “Clerks 3” could take a far different form from the other installments in the series, as he is toying with the idea of a “Book of Mormon”-inspired 6-month limited run on Broadway. Apparently he’s already discussed the idea with “Clerks” star Jeff Anderson, and stated over Twitter that he’d like to see the production take the stage in 2014 if Anderson could be involved.
