Work is done on the Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, so...

Clerks 3 has officially been confirmed by director, writer and star Kevin Smith.

Smith took to a long-winded Instagram post to confirm the sequel is in pre-production.

“It’ll be a movie that concludes a saga. It’ll be a movie about how you’re never too old to completely change your life. It’ll be a movie about how a decades-spanning friendship finally confronts the future. It’ll be a movie that brings us back to the beginning – a return to the cradle of civilization in the great state of [New Jersey].

Smith also confirmed that the original stars of Clerks, Jeff Anderson and Brian O’Halloran, would star in the film, as would Silent Bob’s companion, Jason Mewes as Jay.

Smith has completed work on another sequel, Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, which hits theatres from 15 October.
