Kevin Smith Reveals First Details of His Next Film

As Clerks III gets closer to release, Kevin Smith has, in part, turn his attention to the next project. It doesn’t apparently tie into his recurring characters, while it also is an 80’s set teenager-led period piece. A bit more can be found on the film below.

On social media, Smith revealed in a post about purchasing a New Jersey movie theater the title and basic plot for his next film. It’s called The 4:30 Movie and centers on teens theater hopping. Sounds like something Smith is uniquely suited to, so it’s yet another film to look forward to in the next year or so.

Here is what Kevin Smith wrote on social media: “But this dramatic development has already paid creative dividends: remember that script I just finished? I started writing it because we’re about to own a movie theater – so I figured “Why not shoot a movie AT your new movie theater?” Set in 1986, the flick’s entitled THE 4:30 MOVIE and it follows 3 suburban teenagers as they theater hop a spring Sunday away, sneaking from flick to flick, like we did as kids. I’m looking to shoot that in 2023

And here is the script image for The 4:30 Movie:
