: 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."

Did you actually read the summaries? In the JASBSB section, the first question is: "What happened to the movie I saw mention at the end of Dogma, "Clerks 2 : Hardly Clerkin'"?"
The answer is it became JASBSB.

: 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?

He wants to move on to more "adult oriented" stuff, and by this I think he means less teen-themes, not more porn.

: 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.

The great thing about the four movies we've got so far is that they are all the same but different. They're all interconnected but Kevin's never made the same movie twice. People take different things away from Mallrats than they do from Chasing Amy but that doesn't make Mallrats a worse film in my opinion. And Dogma is my personal favourite of the movies so far.

: So why is JASBSB the last film?

Would you rather Jay and Silent Bob kept making appearances until the idea's been totally run into the ground? The TV shows and movies that stand the test of time are nearly always the ones where the creative team was brave enough to let them go while they are at their peak rather than let them slide a bit and cancel them when people aren't that interested any more.

: And why is Clerks 2 now abandoned?

Like I said, I think elements of Clerks 2 have been recycled into JASBSB, but the scope of the movie has got a bit larger.

: 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?)

Who knows? I kind of hope not, though.

: Hope there's some answers out there because I didn't find any in the summaries.

Dig deeper...

: Gracias

I know, I fell over on the lawn.
