In August, Kevin Smith said he was going to split his final film, Hit Somebody, into two movies. But it appears he couldn’t stop splitting and the next thing he knew, he didn’t have a movie anymore but a miniseries. This left a vacancy in his “final film” slot, until today, when he tweeted: “So with the HIT SOMEBODY shift, the minute Jeff Anderson signs on, my last cinematic effort as a writer/director will be CLERKS III. #TaDa” Ultimately, Smith’s legacy is tied to the films inside that universe, so this sounds like a perfect last hoorah. Snooch to the nooch.
