Kevin Smith to cameo in his own biopic, 'Shooting Clerks'

Posted on

Kevin Smith will make a cameo in the independent film celebrating his own rags-to-riches Hollywood story. Shooting Clerks is a crowd-sourced biopic of how Smith bankrolled his grainy $27,000 first film with maxed-out credit cards and became the darling of the Sundance Film Festival when Clerks debuted there in 1994. Smith gave the project his blessing when it was announced in February, and the filmmakers announced today that Smith will be part of the film. He’ll also provide narration and play a small role as a Canadian reporter named Larkin Eve (an anagram for Real Kevin).

The film, directed by Christopher Downie, is currently in production in Vancouver, New Jersey, and the United Kingdom, and the filmmakers hope to debut it at Sundance in January.
