Clerks 3 Script Finished: Kickstarter Idea Scrapped

by at . Comments

Kevin Smith is trying to be the anti-Zach Braff. Smith just finished the script for Clerks 3, posting a picture of the completed screenplay on Instagram.

Clerks 3 will be his final film, but partly in response to the backlash to Braff's Kickstarter, Smith has canned his initial idea of crowdfunding the film.

Clerks 3 Script

The script is 137 pages long, and according to the Instagram post, "plays like the Empire Strikes Back of the Clerks trilogy."

As for Smith's opinion on Kickstarter, in a recent Reddit AMA, he said "I'm feeling like that's not fair to real indie filmmakers who need the help. Unlike back when I made 'CLERKS' in '91, I've GOT access to money now - so I should use that money and not suck any loot out of the crowd-funding marketplace that might otherwise go to some first-timer who can really use it."

Good on ya, Kevin. I wonder if he would have felt that way had Braff not broken public opinion on that type crowd funding.
