Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"
He actually joked about that in his recent podcast, saying that all he'd have to do is film the movie in color and then digitally alter the picture to black-and-white in postproduction. But he doesn't want to do the entire film that way because too many people will accuse him of making a direct ripoff of the first film instead of a wider-scope tribute that uses some of the same successful elements as we saw with Clerks 2.
My guess is we won't get a B & W movie but he might toy around a little with the color in the film the way he did at the very end of the last chapter in the story.
Human instinct is pretty strong. You can't expect us to change overnight.
