Does anyone know why JASBSB will be the last film from ViewAskew? and why Clerks 2 isn't going to be made?
In the summaries I only found this snipet of an explanation:
Will there be more adventures of Dante and Randal?
"Besides the movie, there have been several comic books and the Clerks cartoon. Kevin has also stated that Dante and Randal will return in the next (and final) Askewniverse flick."
The only reason I can gather is that now Kevin is a full family man he either wants out of working, or wants to improve his image from cult director to an eventual scorcese status?
Ofcourse I'm speculating, But I've heard off other Askew fans that they felt Mallrats & Dogma weren't quite up to par with Chasing Amy and Clerks due to the heavy comical involvement of Jay & Silent Bob. I've also heard that people want a Clerks in color, since this won't happen (nor would we want a colorization) it would have been cool to have Clerks 2 in color.
Personally, I can understand how people rank Chasing Amy and Clerks higher than Mallrats & Dogma, I think it depends on tastes mainly, but also has to do with Clerks and Chasing Amy being more realistic films I believe.
Though Mallrats & Dogma in my opinion are both fun, funny, and fucking cool films in their own right ... just as Clerks and Chasing Amy are in theirs.
So why is JASBSB the last film?
And why is Clerks 2 now abandoned?
And if JASBSB is the last film, shouldn't kev make a true final, a jedi? (star wars, empire strikes back, jedi ... if JASBSB can't they Return ala Jedi style?)
Hope there's some answers out there because I didn't find any in the summaries.
