At one point, CLERKS III was going to be his final film, but then a little project called TUSK came along.

Kevin Smith Says He Now Has The Financing For 'Clerks 3' So despite a lot of hype, Kevin Smith's "Tusk" opened earlier this month and pretty much died. It earned a paltry $1.4 million theatrically but that said, the VOD numbers might be more encouraging. Either way, the filmmaker knows how to hustle, and he's already at work at the low budget "Yoga Hosers," with "Moose Jaws" in the pipeline (part of what Smith calls the "True North Trilogy").

A24 In 2011, Kevin Smith took to the Sundance stage after the premiere of his then-latest film, the horror-cum-satire-cum-action movie, Red State. The film, in conjunction with a 33-minute rant about Hollywood and the death of the indie film world, led many to declare that Smith had totally lost his mind.
