Despite the fact that God closed the book on the View Askewniverse at the end of “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back” (ignoring the inconvenient and short-lived existence of the Clerks cartoon series for the moment), it is being reported that Kevin Smith is working on a Clerks sequel (ignoring the inconvenient existence of Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and JaSBSB). Filming is set to start in January, and it looks like the important core cast is all set to return. Based on this quote from Smith, I have hopes that it’ll be Clerks or Mallrats quality, not JaSBSB quality: “The whole process [of making the Clerks DVD] reminded me why I got into the film biz in the first place: to make talky, low-budget comedies.”
