The story is allegedly inspired by Smith’s own near death experience in 2018, and follows Randal (Anderson) after suffering a massive heart attack. He enlists the help of Dante (O’Halloran), Elias (Fehrman), Jay (Mewes) and Silent Bob (Smith) to immortalise his life at the convenience store on film.
“Thanks to Lionsgate, we get to return to where it all started with almost the whole cast that started it all!” Smith said in a statement. “We’re shooting the entire flick on location in New Jersey, as an ode to both the enduring allure of cinema and the resourcefulness and lunacy of its storytellers. Years ago, Dante and Randal made me a filmmaker – so now it’s time I return the favor.”
Production on Clerks III will begin in August.
