Kevin Smith Promises Clerks III As A Movie, Hit Somebody As A Six-Part TV Show

It’s hard to keep count but the last I remember, Clerks III was going to be a live stage show and Hit Somebody was going to be two movies, the second being Kevin Smith‘s cinematic swan song.

But Smith has just shuffled the deck again, seemingly live on Twitter.

Having first revealed his plans to take Hit Somebody, his hockey epic based on the Warren Zevon song, to TV during a podcast this week, Smith fleshed out some details via a Tweet:

Six one hour episodes. If any one of them is as good as Red State it will rank amongst the best of Smith’s work.

Which brings me to Clerks III and how disappointing I find the prospect.

Firs of all, here are Smith’s announcement Tweets:

Is he pulling our legs? I don’t think so. I’m not sure about this retirement plan – as I’ve said before, he’s just made the best film of his career, now is not the time to jack it in – but I do think he’s sincere about Clerks III. At least, I see no reason to assume he isn’t.

But while it would be totally possible for Smith to turn Clerks III into something superb, I’m not sure he will. Clerks II was a big step back for him, and I fear this would be the same. A fall into juvenilia and easy ploys, bogged down with lowest common denominator business. It’s almost like he’s too close to stand back and really be as hard on his Clerks films as he needs to be.

I don’t know. It’s just a fear. I’d love Clerks III blow my mind instead of just, you know, a donkey.
