Hollywood Reporter North says that Toronto's Epitome Pictures is developing a big screen feature based on Degrassi: The Next Generation
, with Kevin Smith
in the directors chair. Smith has been a long time fan of the series and recently appeared alongside Jason Mewes in a three episode story arc. THR reports that the film will shoot in late August on location in Toronto. If this is true, that would mean Clerks 2
will delayed yet again, which seems very unlikely. Smith did recently meet with Degrassi's Stacie Mistysyn
, and reported as much in hid blog, but I'm betting there is more to this story - either the date is wrong, or Smith's name got reported in some name-dropping secenrio. We'll just have to wait for a confirmation.
