Kevin Smith teases a new script hot off the presses

The 'Clerks' director excited his fan on Twitter today teasing another entry in his series of cinematic folk art.

Film enthusiast and comic book store owner Kevin Smith has also spent the past few decades indulging in a filmmaking hobby, delighting a small but surprisingly loyal audience by trotting out the same set of jokes and characters for the past 28 years. And Smith took a break from his Hugo Chavez-style marathon podcasting schedule to tweet a tease of a new screenplay that he had apparently bashed out during breaks in his Clerks 3 filming schedule.

The screenplay is marked as a “first draft,” which in Smith’s world of filmmaking means it’s ready to shoot tomorrow. It also came accompanied by a blank verse poem explaining that he may never make the film, which is exciting news for those who sat through Jay & Silent Bob Reboot, Smith’s last exercise in pointing a camera at actors and attempting to keep it in focus:

In the accompanying page of screenplay, the action begins in a Central New Jersey town in a bungalow, where somebody answers a rotary wall phone while a radio station plays. Seeing as the phone technology places the action firmly in the past, and with Smith himself hailing from Central Jersey, a sharp-eyed reader can deduce that the script is another autobiographical Kevin Smith exercise in navel-gazing.

Smith’s next film is the upcoming release of Clerks III, a thinly-veiled autobiographical telling of Smith’s entry into filmmaking with the original Clerks, ground that was also covered in 2008 with Smith’s Zack & Miri Make A Porno.
