by at . Comments

Fun movie news this afternoon: Kevin Smith is hoping to leave the industry on a high note in 2014 with one last full-circle directorial effort: Clerks 3.

The film would be the swan song installment of his slacker saga, which began with Clerks, the 1994 flick that put the indie filmmaker on the map.

Kevin's announcement follows the news that his hockey flick Hit Somebody will be turned into a six-part miniseries on an unannounced network.

"So with the HIT SOMEBODY shift, the minute Jeff Anderson signs on, my last cinematic effort as a writer/director will be CLERKS III #TaDa," Smith tweeted.

2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the original film, which was shot in a convenience store and continues to have a cult following to this day.

The movie is responsible for launching Smith's career, marked by hit indie staples like Chasing Amy, Dogma and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.

Smith also recently said in an interview with Good Day LA:

"Instead of letting people [guess] for years, I said, ‘I will do Clerks 3. 2014 it is the 20th anniversary. We're going to mark it somehow, God willing, with Clerks 3."

"We just need Jeff Anderson to come back and say yes."
