The ultimate slacker movie, Clerks, is getting a sequel.
The Passion of the Clerks
The sequel picks up 10 years on from where Clerks left off. "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.
Jay and Silent Bob were supposedly laid to rest after 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back...' was made. That was true, but Kevin Smith made a promise to Jason Mewes (Jay) that if he could stay off drugs for a period of time he would let Jason play Jay one more time. Gotta repay the drug debts somehow.
