I wouldn't have believed it if you told me about it, but here it is:

``It's about what happens when that lazy, 20-something malaise lasts into your 30s. Those dudes are kind of still mired, not in that same exact situation, but in a place where it's time to actually grow up and do something more than just sit around and dissect pop culture and talk about sex,'' Smith said during an interview at his Hollywood office. ``It's: What happened to these dudes?''

 

Smith says in the article that working on the forthcoming 3-disc DVD set of Clerks (due September 7) inspired him to making a sequel. And yes, Jason Mewes is going to return to his defining role as Jay as well as Brian O'Halloran and Jeff Anderson as Dante and Randall, respectively. Though the article doesn't say it, I'm sure Smith will also return to his role as Lunch Box... er, I mean Silent Bob.

 

I must admit that I'm somewhat skeptical about this. I thought Smith had done all he wanted to do with these characters and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back was their grand send-off. It's kind of disappointing to see him fall back into the groove since I would like to see him expand himself as a filmmaker. Jersey Girl was a good start, but I wonder if its poor reception at the box office deterred him from doing something outside of the New Jersey Trilogy.

 

Still, if it's funny and good, I won't complain. After all, this is Clerks we're talking about here. Let's just hope Randall hasn't run out of his unique observations regarding the holy Star Wars Trilogy. :D

I'm not overly happy about this. Smith's lack of confidence in his own abilities as a filmmaker continues to upset me. Whilst I don't think he's doing this to make a quick buck, I do think it is a shame for him to revert to a pretty much guaranteed safe zone in his work, especially after he was so adamant he was leaving the 'Askewniverse' characters behind him for good when it came to their celluloid exploits.
