Yesterday, we reported on a new deal by The Weinstein Company and Miramax where they'll be sequelizing a bunch of their hit/classic films.
Given his track record with both companies, it's no surprise that Kevin Smith chose to share his thoughts on the possibility of Clerks III and other Jay and Silent Bob sequels.
Here's what he had to say about it on his Twitter:
"…I sold the movie [Clerks] to them in 1994. But I guess if someone was going to exploit the library for sequels, remakes, tv, I'd rather it be the devil I know. Nice to know there's a home for Clerks III if I ever wanted to make it, but hope it doesn't become a home for a Clerks-anything if I'm not involved."
More from Kevin:
"Either way, I doubt my shit is even something they wanna re-do/remake. They own Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jersey Girl and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. But then it's further complicated by the Jay & Silent Bob of it all. They don't own Jay & Silent Bob; I do. They own Strike Back, but they can't make any flick that'd include Jay & Silent Bob (even a Strike Back sequel) without my permission/license.
The only flick they own free & clear of me with no ties whatsoever, is Jersey Girl. And from personal experience, there's little to no interest in a sequel or remake, unless it opens with JLo's dead Mom busting out of her earthen grave, trampling her only begotten daughter's copy of a Necronomicon as she eats her brains. If they wanna do THAT Jersey Girl sequel, I'm totally in. But honestly, all those flicks are theirs to do with as they will. I can't (and won't) complain. At least the Guardians of Ga'Harvey are still in place, looking out for the dopey little (f)art flicks I made so long ago."
LOLs! This is HIGHlarious, Kevin!
We'd LOVE to see THAT Jersey Girl sequel! Sounds amazing!
Would U like to see Kevin Smith's movies get the sequel treatment?
…Snooch to the nooch.
