Clerks III – The Beginning of the End

Look like Kev’s started the first draft of Clerks III. Over on Facebook he had this to say about what might be his best “FILM” (perhaps adding fuel to the fire that a film might still be in the works over the book project we’ve heard about recently):
THE BEGINNING OF THE END
20 years ago today, we started shooting CLERKS.
20 years later, with no plan or provocation, I jumped out of bed at 4:20 this morning and started writing CLERKS III.
It’s been like hanging out with old friends.
And after 2 hours … Read More »

Get Ready To Be There Today…Again? Clerks 3!

With the announcement of Hit Somebody becoming a miniseries instead of a a two part or one part feature film, Kev dropped the retirement bomb on Twitter yesterday officially announcing Clerks 3. It all started with a question from @SpoiledSmokers:  “With HIT SOMEBODY now being 6 hour long scripts. Will you do one more Feature Film to officially retire on?” Kevin simply replied: “Ah-HA!” . . . at first. He went on to explain:
Since HIT SOMEBODY is now gonna be a mini-series, yes – that leaves room for a new … Read More »

“Drawn” Out Of Retirement…April 2013

We’ve not got a date (and a tour!) for Jay And Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie. Here’s the announcement from the man himself:
Something filthy this way cums, when the legendary best buds from Jersey return to dispense weed and wisdom IN CARTOON FORM!
In April 2013, I’ll be touring the world with another flick – just like I did with RED STATE. But this time, the flick’s an animated movie produced by none other than Mr. Snootch-to-the-motherfuckin-Nootch himself –
From first-time Director STEVE STARK – the Canadian Animating Genius behind SModimations … Read More »

Passing The Torch…

When we invented a few silly drinking games after seeing “Chasing Amy” back in May of 1997, and put them online, we figured that would be the start and the end of it. Little did we know of the amazing experience and adventure that it would turn into. What once started as a drinking game experiment quickly blossomed into a full-fledged, and official, news website about all things Kevin Smith and View Askew, called News Askew. This summer, we were then honored to be asked to transition … Read More »

How about some multimedia for you today? We’d like to send some kudos out to author Amar, on the work he did on this hockey video for YouTube, taking recent comments from Kevin Smith and Joe Rogan during their podcast and turning it into a tightly edited 10 minutes of hockey enjoyment. He calls it “Two for Tripping: Blaze and Schtick”. Kudos, sir, and nice work.
