So with Kevin Smith now officially cast in Catch and Release, production on Clerks 2 has officially been pushed back to a September start. Smith will be traveling to Vancouver this week for the two and a half month Catch and Release shoot, which will see him in a large co-starring role. However, this will mean that Smith will probably have to scrap his plans of returning to Sundance with the sequel.

“While that would've been a poetic move, as [Scott] Mosier (Smith’s producing partner) pointed out, it's not like it would've been a triumphant return or something: we'd already had that moment when we debuted Chasing Amy up there in '97, after the theatrical crash-and-burn of Mallrats,” Smith wrote on his website.
