Rosario Dawson joined the world of Kevin Smith’s Clerks as Becky Scott in 2006’s Clerks II. Now the actress has suggested she’ll be back as the character in the planned Clerks III.
While doing press for her new film, Gimme Shelter, she was asked if Smith proposes to release the sequel this November, to coincide with the 20th Anniversary of the first film. Dawson commented, “Well, we haven’t shot it, so I don’t know if that’s possible. He just confirmed that I’m in it!”
Last month Smith said that he wants to start production this May. Although it would be a very quick turnaround to get the film in cinemas by November, it’s certainly not impossible, especially considering the Clerks movies don’t need a lot of special effects. It wouldn’t be too far from the schedule he’s been working to on his new movie Tusk either.
Brian O’Halloran, whose Dante character got engaged to Dawson’s Becky at the end of Clerks II, will likely return, alongside Jeff Anderson’s Randall. Jason Mewes and Smith should also appear as Jay and Silent Bob.
