Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

He used to complain about people always calling him "Randal" and asking him to do his "funny little walk" from the original film and he seemed to be pretty bothered by it, but what else has he done aside from a couple of low-budget indie film projects outside the View Askewniverse? Now You Know is about the only thing I've ever seen him act in outside of Kevin's films, and Kevin actually helped make that movie possible.

Just do the new movie and be glad you've made millions of people happy over the last twenty years with your goofy, wiseass character. A lot of actors who are much, much more talented than him would cut their arms off with a hacksaw to get even half the public exposure and fame that Anderson has by talking about jizz moppers, the Death Star and Pillow Pants.

Clerks without Randall? Sounds extremely disappointing.

I hope he goes back to Black and White for Clerks 3.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

Did I spell it with one "L" again? DOH!

Jeff's main concern has always about the integrity of the story and characters, not anything to do with himself or being a diva, and Kevin out of respect for Jeff knows this. He loves these characters just as much as we do, if not more, and doesn't want Kevin just doing something for the sake of doing it, which Kevin has talked about in the past as a concern. That's why Jeff is the potential end all or be all of this project. I really don't see it happening without him.

Those who have heard the pitch (and it's only really like four or five people now) have said it's the best thing that Kevin's ever come up with (outside of "Hit Somebody" which he himself has said is his best work writing wise).

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.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

The one thing that he hasn't talked about is if Rosario Dawson will be back or not. I'm guessing she will be given how critical she was to II.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

She's one of the actors I think will be the first to sign on since she loved making #2 so much and had so much raucous fun on the sets. Rebecca Scott Hicks will be back, and with a little kid to boot. Remember, she was pregnant with Dante's baby the last time we saw the gang and I'm sure Kevin is itching to tell the story of Mr. "37 Dicks, Are You Kidding Me" as a father and husband.

As with the pre-production buildup to Clerks 2 it seems a lot is going to depend on whether or not Jeff Anderson (Randal) signs on to the project to reprise his role one more time. If you're familiar with the background to the last Askewniverse film you know that Anderson was a longtime holdout to making #2 because he didn't think it would be well received, would be a pale shadow of the original film and might even cause typecasting damage to his own career if he was seen as being "that Clerks guy who does the funny walk and always shows up in Kevin's movies." Jeff held out for a good while and was the last major actor to agree to appear, and while he ended up loving #2 and thinking that the story was brilliant and funny he seems to have retreated back into his bubble of "meh, is this really a good idea?"

In a recent SModcast podcast related to Clerks 3 Smith said Anderson's involvement was going to be important if not crucial, but in the meantime he's going to stick to plans to make the movie and see what happens.
Actually, I think his issue with doing III has more to do with money issues stemming from II and failure by the studio to pay out back end money. There was a Hollywood Bable On where Kevin went into some detail on how he had to hire a laywer to audit the weinstine company, and they were owed something like ten pulse million in unpaid royalties. Kevin, Jay, Jeff, and Brian all took basically no pay up front, shifting to a backend deal... And the company screwed them. Jeff has said he won't do the third till the company pays him the owed money from clerks II.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

You could be correct about that. I know more about Anderson's reasons for and hangups about not wanting to participate in #2, but I did hear Smith mention something about money still being owed to at least a couple of the actors in the last film. If this indeed keeps Jeff from signing on for the third installment and sabotages the filming it'd be a real shame.

A whole lot of people are looking forward to seeing the original cast again and it's been almost ten years since the last film was released. It's always something....

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

Kevin said that the audit was one of the issues that they all had to wait for...but yeah Jeff too, wanted to make sure that was all squared away. Those seem to have been dealt with, because I believe that Kevin stated that he wasn't going to start working on III until that was out of the way and dealt with.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

I certainly hope that's the case. It'd be great to hear an announcement from View Askew that the last major stumbling blocks have been pushed out of the way and the cast can settle into place for filming to begin.

If his March 8 Facebook announcement that the script is now being written means a lot of the behind-the-scenes crap is being worked out then that'd be fantastic news.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

I suspect he'll have his first draft completed in a month or two. He's a pretty fast writer when he's in the zone, and that's exactly what he seems to be right now regarding III.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

In his podcast I referenced he joked that he's had the story details for #3 for so long that the actual scriptwriting process would take less than a week. A humorous exaggeration, but Kevin can crank out scripts like sausages compared to many other screenwriters.

I imagine it won't be long at all before he finishes and starts passing it around to the actors and producers for their feedback.

Re: 20 YEARS AGO TODAY: "But I'm Not Even Supposed to BE Here Today!"

"Hit Somebody" didn't take very long either IIRC...but he was so into the zone with that, he ended up with two films!!!

It was so big, it's now a miniseries project.
