It’s no secret that Kevin Smith is one of the most unique filmmakers out there, and also one of the most appreciated in the film community. Not only do people love his sense of humor and personality, but they also love his films – mainly Clerks, Mallrats, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.
His life and career is definitely a long story to tell seeing as how he has been working for decades now, but Smith fans are in for a treat as the upcoming bio-documentary centered around the filmmaker – titled Clerk – has just been acquired by 1091 Pictures.
The film (which Joey raved about in his SXSW review here) was directed by Malcolm Ingram (who he also interviewed here), promises to document the life and career of the iconic filmmaker. The news comes to us on Smith’s birthday, which also happens to be the first day of filming on Clerks III.
Thankfully, we won’t have to wait too long to get to see this brand new documentary – the film is scheduled to be released on November 23, 2021 digitally.
Jay Mewes is among those interviewed to weigh in on Smith’s detailed life and career, joined by fellow collaborators and friends including Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Justin Long and Richard Linklater and including never-before-seen footage including of George Carlin and Stan Lee.
