Based on the true story of modern architect pioneer, Eileen Grey, The Price of Desire has also bagged Shannyn Sossamon for the lead role. The film will chart the changes that her personal relationships had on the architecture world. While falling in love with her nemesis, Swiss/French designer Le Corbusier (Vincent Perez), Grey also maintained a relationship with Marisa Damia.
Continuing the Kickstarter trend which has struck Hollywood, the filmmakers have created a campaign to fund restoration on Gray’s villa. Located in Roquebrune Cap Martin, »

As he does with most things, Kevin Smith used the internet to announce he's completed the first draft of what will become, he says, his final movie, "Clerks III." He posted a photo of the finished script, along with the clapperboard from his first movie, "Clerks," to Instagram.
The photo is accompanied with the caption, "It Is Accomplished! First draft of 'Clerks III' is 137 pages. Plays like the 'Empire Strikes Back' of the 'Clerks' trilogy." That's a pretty long script for a comedy, but the number holds some significance to fans of Smith's work. The number 37 has been referred to in just about each one of his movies.
Initially Smith said he grand plan for the movie was to use crowd-source funding to get it made, and he almost went through with launching a Kickstarter for the project in November. His stance has changed though. In an Ama on Reddit, »
You wanted it and well now you’ve got it. Kevin Smith has at last confirmed that he will take one final trip into his View Askew Universe to bring the story of his most popular characters to an end once and for all. That’s right Clerks 3 has a fully finished screenplay.
Smith broke the news to the world on his Facebook page and sounded extremely excited about the development:
When we last left the film’s protagonists they had been working another dead end job as assistants in ‘Mooby’s’ a local fast food emporium before jacking it all in and buying the store from the first movie which had caused them so much misery way back when. »

A little more than two months after Kevin Smith announced that he'd begun writing Clerks 3 comes word from the actor/director/podcaster that he's finished penning the first draft of the script for the anticipated followup to his Jersey-set films, which will now be known as the Clerks trilogy. Smith shared the following photo via Facebook and Instagram this week: It Is Accomplished! Clerks III, First Draft! At 137 pages, it plays like The Empire Strikes Back of what's now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am So in love with it. Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used on the original Clerks. Both the old clapboard and the old filmmaker are ready to go back to Jersey for the last time. It's great to hear him sounding especially positive about it. And he offers a throwback to the original film by including the clapboard used for Clerks, the »
Is it a TV series? Is it a book? No, it’s definitely a film. Kevin Smith has taken to Twitter and Facebook with his announcement that he has finished the first draft for Clerks III. The writer-director began writing the script at the start of March. Clocking in at a mammoth 137 pages, his initial draft will no doubt undergo a series of rewrites before its ready for shooting.
The director exclaimed on his Facebook page: “It Is Accomplished! Clerks III, First Draft!” He went on to say, along with a snapshot of the first slate:
“…it plays like The Empire Strikes Back of what’s now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am So in love with it. Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used on the original Clerks. Both the old clapboard and the old filmmaker are ready to go back to Jersey for the last time. »

★★★★☆ The first in Artificial Eye's long-awaited batch of Hal Hartley reissues, Amateur (1994) represents a mid-career high point for the indie legend. As ever, it's the work of a singular auteur, treading the fine line between self-reflexive exuberance and rarefied stylisation. By ingratiating broad genre elements into the self-contained suburban eccentricity of his earlier Long Island-set efforts, Hartley finds an abundance of comic riches in the central tension between stolid realism and poker-faced ludicrousness. Amateur is the also director's most beautifully designed picture; it's a film of deft precision and glassy elegance.
Amateur stars Isabelle Huppert as a former nun struggling to make a living writing pornographic fiction while waiting for her mission from God. In a coffee shop one morning, she meets Thomas (Martin Donovan), a quiet amnesiac trying to piece together his past. The pair are unaware that Thomas' condition results from being pushed through a window by »

Kevin Smith has revealed on Facebook that the first draft of his long-gestating slacker sequel, Clerks 3, is finally complete. “It Is Accomplished!” revealed the writer / director on the social networking site. “First draft of Clerks III is 137 pages. Plays like the Empire Strikes Back of what's now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am So in love with it.” As recently as February, Smith had suggested that the second sequel might take the form of a comic-book or an online series, but it sounds as though the project is destined for the...

Putting to use the complex Hollywood equation that is “1 page = 1 minute,” we can assume that this version of the script would yield an approximately 2 hours and 17 minutes-long film. But since we can also assume that Smith hasn’t made his version of The Master, the »

Wow, Kevin Smith just can't stay away from his View Askewniverse, can he? First, Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back was supposed to be the series' swan song. Then, he swore Clerks II would be the last. Now, we're getting a Clerks III, and he says that it will be the last film of his career. Originally, it was hinted that Clerks III would take the form of a book or a web comic, but here's a detail that might shake that up: the (movie?) script is finished! »

After first teasing that "Clerks 3" would be a movie, and then saying that it might be a book, the vacillating Kevin Smith has gone ahead an finished the damn thing as a screenplay. But wait, there's more.... “It Is Accomplished! First draft of Clerks III is 137 pages,” he tweeted today. “Plays like the Empire Strikes Back of the Clerks trilogy.” We're not sure what that means, but Smith fans will doubtless be very excited for another outing with Dante and Randal (although it's worth noting that the entire enterprise rests on whether or not the latter decides to come back, we're inclined to think he will). Whether or not this actually gets made remains a whole other question of course. Being a first draft, subsequent drafts will presumably jettison the fat to get it down to the lean 90-minutes that the previous instalments ran to....right? Because no one wants »

Kevin Smith has announced via his Facebook account that he's completed the first draft of his final film, Clerks III. When he first started to write the script, he stated that it would be the best film he'd ever make. He tweeted the photo above of the script with the following note...
It Is Accomplished! Clerks III, First Draft!
At 137 pages, it plays like The Empire Strikes Back of what's now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am So in love with it. Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used on the original Clerks. Both the old clapboard and the old filmmaker are ready to go back to Jersey for the last time...
This is exciting stuff! I enjoyed the first two Clerks movies, and I'm looking forward to seeing these characters back one last time. »

Kevin Smith announced today that the first draft of his Clerks III script is finished. He announced the news via his Instagram. Check out the photo of the entire screenplay as laid out on his old Clerks clapboard from 1994, along with his exclamation that this is the Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back of the series (shouldn't that have been Clerks II?)
Yes, you heard right, Clerks III has become a reality and this shot of a completed first draft from creator Kevin Smith has given us a little teaser to prove it. Who’d a thought the original could have turned into a trilogy? I loved the 1994 original, and mainly because having worked in customer service roles over the years, you just know how Dante and Randal feel.
But it wasn’t just about the kicks on that side, it’s also clever, quick and completely unique…and they have an awesome game of hockey on the roof. Legends. I also enjoyed a lot of Clerks II and although it didn’t stick quite as well as the original, it was still an enjoyable affair and I’d love to see those two main characters have a finale on the big screen.
Here’s that teaser from Kevin Smith – it’s the script! »

Too bad! You've got to be friends with Kevin Smith, or his agent/manager, if you want to read this. But it's done. Kevin Smith took to his Facebook to post a photo of his finished Clerks III script. Back in March we posted the first photo of the very first page of his work on the script, now ~66 days later it's finished. His message about the news states: "At 137 pages, it plays like The Empire Strikes Back of what's now become the Clerks Trilogy. And I am So in love with it." Awesome to hear. Though that is a very long script, but Clerks II did end up with a 97 minute runtime, he can still condense and revise things. See the photo below! Smith writes: "It Is Accomplished! Clerks III, First Draft!" Photo below in full from Facebook: Seen above: "Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used »

The filmmaker announced that he was working on a third Clerks film in March, and promised that the project will be "the best film" of his career.
"It Is Accomplished! Clerks III, First Draft," the director wrote on Facebook.
"Pictured is the script with the clapboard we used on the original Clerks. Both the old clapboard and the old filmmaker are ready to go back to Jersey for the last time."

Not often do I come across any awesome tidbits on Instagram, but today was the exception. It seems that Kevin Smith has completed his first draft of Clerks III. I was going to say "Snootchie Bootchies" then I just think of what Jay says in Chasing Amy: "'Snootchie-bootchies'. Who talks like that? That's baby-talk." Smith also posted the pic of the finished script on Facebook along with these words: "It Is Accomplished! Clerks III, First Draft! At 137 pages, it »

El Mariachi has a lot to answer for. As does Clerks. Both were made in the early ‘90s on incredibly low budgets ($9,000 and $30,000 respectively; Clerks filmmaker Kevin Smith famously maxed out all of his credit cards to finance the film) and achieved previously unheard-of success from new directors, as supposedly ‘independent’ film budgets of that era – like those of Reservoir Dogs and Sex, Lies and Videotape – came in at around the $1million mark. This helped to kick-start guerrilla movements and independent movies proper, and surely had some impact on bringing us to our crowdfunded present, where dead TV shows can be resurrected by the cash of fans and a boatload of promises. It also sent an unfortunate if optimistic message to the general populace of the world:
We made a feature film without any money. Why don’t you? »

The director took some flak after his first Trek film by admitting he wasn't a fan of the TV series. Now, back with another one, does he regret what he said? And what plans does he have for his first Star Wars movie?
When Jj Abrams was handed the task of revitalising the Star Trek franchise in 2006, the portents were not good. His first directing job, Mission: Impossible III, had not been finished, he had a string of script commissions behind him of variable quality – including Michael Bay's infamous asteroid-masher Armageddon. He had small-screen chops for sure, earned via successful series Alias and Lost, but many a TV guy has stumbled when attempting to deliver proper cinema. Now, seven years later, Abrams is king of the Hollywood heap: sitting on billions of dollars in box office, a second Star Trek film poised for release, and a deal up his »
