Clerks III

Even without a Ben Affleck cameo, Kevin Smith believes his third “Clerks” movie will be the best film in his filmography. ”I know for a fact it’s going to be the best movie I ever make. Some people are going to say, ‘How can he say it’ll be better than Clerks?’ Well, in the words of Pierre Elliot Trudeau, ‘Just watch me.’ The movie, which may or may not feature “Mr. Argo”, shoots in August (The Toronto Sun)

Dumb & Dumber To

Though Warner Bros has dropped the film, and producers are now shopping it elsewhere, star Jeff Daniels believes the sequel to the ’90s hit will still happen. ”It’s not my place to say, and it’s not a done deal by any means, but it’s close. I’m hoping that in the days or weeks to come very shortly here, they’ll be able to say, yes, we’re doing it, everything’s tied up, and we have a shoot date. We’re not there yet, but it’s very close. I know Jim [Carrey] wants to do it, I want to do it, the Farrellys want to do it. These things are complicated, putting all these movie deals together. And it’s not even on the talent side, it’s on the business side for the studios and the distributors and the production companies. They’re working out final details, and I hope we’re shooting that later this summer. But we’ll see. I haven’t checked my phone lately. But it could be — I hope pretty quickly. But I don’t know. I don’t know. It’d be great to be with Jim again, I know that. And I gotta say, just personally, as an actor, to go from Will McAvoy to Harry Dunne and back to Will McAvoy, that’s a wild ride.” (The L.A Times)

Prometheus 2

The sequel to the unofficial “Alien” prequel is moving ahead at Fox. Jack Palgen (“Transcendence”) is in talks to write the film, which Ridley Scott is expected to return as director for. Jon Spaihts and Damon Lindelof wrote the first film. (Variety)

Girl Meets World

The Avengers 2

Joss Whedon says Loki won’t be back for “The Avengers 2”. “Imitating what I did before is the surest way to do it not as well,” he explained. “Second of all, Loki is not there to say those terrible things.” (Empire)
