Kevin Smith went all Vin Diesel today, using Facebook to pimp and garner up excitement for some of his future projects – one of which we’ve never heard of before, “Helena Handbag”.
Smith, in addition to confirming a “Clerks III”, says he won’t be whoring himself out anytime in the near future. His “Cop Out” days are behind him.
“[F]rom now until I drop dead, I’m only ever gonna make a flick that only I would/could ever make,” Smith posted today to his Facebook page. “‘Jersey Girl,’ ‘Zack & Miri,’ ‘Cop Out’ – while I love them all, these are movies anybody could make. Like ‘em or hate ‘em, nobody else but me could’ve (or would’ve) ever made ‘Clerks’. Or ‘Chasing Amy’. Or ‘Dogma’. Or ‘Red State’. Or ‘Clerks II’. Or ‘Mallrats’. Or ‘Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back’. I let my view askew get standardized for awhile there – so much so that I was happy to walk away from it all for three years and do other s–t. But after conceiving and shooting ‘Tusk’ in less than 6 months (with the help of a s–t ton of amazing professionals and a budget smaller than that of ‘Red State’), I realized that film isn’t in my blood… MY films are in my blood. And some of ‘em are still in there, so I better get ‘em out!”
“Helena Handbag”, he says, “concerns mankind teaming up with Hell to save existence from extinction at the hands of a Rapturing giant Jesus – which means the budget has to be LOW, because NOBODY’S gonna wanna make that movie. At all. And I know this going in, so I won’t be heartbroken if it never goes beyond the script. But… if the script is funny enough? Who knows?”
Next is “Clerks III”, which Smith said they hope to shoot in May.
