It looks like we'll have a little longer to wait before we catch up with Dante, Randall and the rest of the View Askewniverse. During a Reddit Ama yesterday, filmmaker Kevin Smith has revealed that he's decided to put Clerks III on hold in order to focus on his recently announced holiday horror anthology Comes the Krampus. Here's what Smith had to say about the subject.

Which is why when we sit you down to tell you that Rosario Dawson was in Clerks II, you rustle in your memory to recall that there was a Clerks II and that it was completely inessential, but Rosario Dawson was totally in it. Now you remember the sober-and-healthy Jason Mewes, you remember the pasty-faced Jeff Anderson, the donkey show. hey, you remember a lot of this movie, don.t you? And just in time for a Clerks III too. Wait, how did that one end? How is there another Clerks? Speaking to »
