Kevin Smith Tweets About Clerks 3 And Other Potential Sequels

kevin smith talks potential sequels via twitter

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.

Jack Bauer Becomes J.R. Ewing?!

jackwenn5471620.jpg

Television is taking a turn for the remakes, looking to resurrect another classic television show for a new generation. Sources are claiming that remake of Dallas is in the works, with none other than Kiefer Sutherland being considered for the lead!

But he won't be playing JR EWing, don't worry. No, that coveted role can only go to one man - the one who originated it! Sources reveal that Larry Hagman, now 79, would be reprising his role as the scheming oil tycoon, and other original cast members, like Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray, have also been approached to return for the remake.

As for the younger blood, we hear Jennifer Love Desperate and Lost actor Josh Holloway are being considered as stars. (Oh, how excited Jennifer must be!)

We think it would be very hard to capture the magic of the original, but worse ideas have been tried!

Would U tune in for a remake of the show?

Werewolves, Werewolves Everywhere! We Hope These Two Don't Stink.

Looks like we’ve got Taylor Lautner’s abs to thank for these upcoming werewolf movie remakes.

In June 2009, Dimension films announced plans to remake John Landis’ 1981 cult classic An American Werewolf in London. We were skeptical at the time, and we’re even more so now.

Over a year after the announcement, they’re finally in talks with screenwriter Fernley Phillips to write the script. Phillips wrote Jim Carrey’s VERY questionably watchable The Number 23. News like this makes it hard for us to remain overly optimistic.

Another werewolf remake in the works is Paramount’s Teen Wolf, based on the 1985 comedy starring Michael J. Fox.

We’re nervous about this remake, because if it goes well, they might try to remake the absurd 1987 sequel, Teen Wolf Too, which starred Jason Bateman. Sorry for reminding the world about this Jason, but don’t worry…we’re all still stoked for the Arrested Development movie!

What werewolf movie do you think they’ll remake next?

She's An Idiot!

She's one to talk!

Michelle Rodriguez isn't impressed with Hollywood and the current obsession with remakes.

She explains:

“I think the industry needs to wake up and stop doing remakes because I’m kind of falling asleep. They need to start doing movies about something other than comic books and stuff that come out in the Eighties. We’ve exploited that already.

"Let’s do something new. It’s sleepy time in Hollywood right now and we need to find something else.

They shouldn't do any more Fast & Furious sequels either!

Ha!

Russell Brand Shacks Up With Helen Mirren

Filed under: Film FlickersRussell Brand

And we think Katy Perry will approve!

Another remake is hitting the big screen, this time of Dudley Moore's classic Arthur.

The 1981 comedy about a rich playboy who gets cut off from his parents will be reimagined with Russell Brand playing the lead and Helen Mirren starring opposite him as his longtime nanny.

Never would have thought to put them together. Hopefully, it'll turn out funnier than we think it will.

Thoughts?

We don't know why he would bother messing with a classic, but director Michael Bay is producing a remake of Roman Polanski's 1968 thriller, Rosemary's Baby!!!!

The remake is being produced by the Transformers director's production company, Platinum Dunes, along with a number of other horror remakes.

And film critic/everyone's favorite Twitter user Roger Ebert tweeted his opinion on the remake on Tuesday!

Says Ebert: "Michael Bay is remaking "Rosemary's Baby. O….kay…."

Our sentiments exactly!

My Fair Lady Gets A Lady

Filed under: Film FlickersHugh Grant

During the premiere of her latest Nanny McPhee movie, Emma Thompson revealed some significant casting news for her remake of the 1964 classic film My Fair Lady. Emma has tapped Carey Mulligan to play the iconic role of Eliza Doolittle.

It'll be the role of a lifetime for Carey, but she doesn't stand a chance of living up to Audrey Hepburn. That's the problem with remakes - they never hold a candle to the original.

As for Professor Henry Higgins, Emma Thompson has an idea of who she wants that we want flushed out of her pretty head immediately! She says:

“I love Hugh [Grant] so I'd love him to do it. He might want to, he might not want to, so we don't know yet. But hopefully we'll make it later this year.”

Upon hearing her say this, Rex Harrison rolled around furiously in his grave!
