Give Kevin Smith an inch and he'll go a mile... The past few days have seen the director at the center of rumors saying that he had written a fake "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" script to throw off fanboys and movie sites, while also revealing that the Weinsteins had passed on financing his $6 million "Clerks 3." Well, he addresses both of those things and more today over on his blog, Silent Bob Speaks.

Give Kevin Smith an inch and he'll go a mile... The past few days have seen the director at the center of rumors saying that he had written a fake "Batman v. Superman: Dawn Of Justice" script to throw off fanboys and movie sites, while also revealing that the Weinsteins had passed on financing his $6 million "Clerks 3." Well, he addresses both of those things and more today over on his blog, Silent Bob Speaks.

First up, chatter that he banged out a fake script is, as you might guess, completely false. "No major studio would let a guy like me near their franchises – even if it was for a dummy script meant solely to fool the news sites," he writes, while pointing out that someone is already claiming credit for the fake script that's floating out there. However, Smith has been busy writing...just a plethora of his own projects.

"After 'Tusk,' I penned 'Anti-Claus' (formerly 'Comes The Krampus') and a sitcom pilot that’s now seeing some action (both co-written with Professor Andy McElfresh from the 'Edumacation' podcast). Then I wrote 'Yoga Hosers' and now I’m in the middle of 'Moose Jaws,' " Smith wrote. So yeah, for better or worse, lots of Smith stuff coming for your eyeballs, including "Clerks 3." While the Weinsteins won't put up the money, they're happy to distribute, and Smith just has to get the cash together. And it seems that's the new plan:


Anyway, before we look too far ahead, Smith's "Tusk" is coming and he's dropped the first poster, along with word that the first trailer will be online right after it premieres at Comic-Con.
