Kevin Smith Reveals Clerks III Will be Completely Set at the Quick Stop

February 6, 2020 | Posted by Jeffrey Harris

Recently, writer and filmmaker Kevin Smith responded to a fan message on his Twitter account, suggesting that Clerks III be set in the airport. Smith quickly shut down that idea, noting that the plan for the third film is to set it entirely at Quick Stop, much like the original.

Smith wrote earlier this week, “Maybe that’s because Clerks II came out in 2006, not the 90’s. Also: Clerks II is my favorite of the Askewniverse movies (with #JayAndSilentBobReboot gaining fast). Also also: Clerks III takes place almost entirely at Quick Stop, so no airport stops. …”

Previously, Kevin Smith had announced that the third installment was in the works last October. The latest ViewAskew Universe film, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, was also released that month.

Smith had talked about a third film some years back, but it never materialized. Smith’s October Instagram post included Jason Mewes (Jay) and Jeff Anderson, indicating that Anderson had signed on to return as Randall once again.
