Woohoo!!! Everyone was worried that clerks 2 was going to suck compared to the original… and now we have a Mallrats 2 in the making… I am so very excited.
Kevin Smith has confirmed the long-awaited sequel to the 1995 cult classic Mallrats is happening, with filming due to commence in 2016. Speaking on local Tuscon morning show Rock102 Mornings with Shmonty & Carolina (via THR) this past weekend, Smith confirmed the script is still being written, though there’s no news as yet if the original cast of Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Shannon Doherty and Stan Lee will be back. “It’s half a script right now, and we’re pulling our loot together,” he said. "We’ve got up until the beginning of 2016. By the time we get to May 2016, we’re going to be shooting."
Smith seems to have a lot on his plate in the coming years, with Clerks III confirmed to start shooting in a couple of months, before this is followed by Hit Somebody and Moose Jaws. Though Mallrats may seem an odd choice for a sequel, Smith explained at this stage in his career he’s more interested in projects that are fun and he has good ideas for.
Love his stuff. I even watch Comic Book Men here and there.
always been a Kevin Smith fan (except for Jersey Girl) so I am very excited for another movie in the Jay and Silent Bob universe! No more movies like Tusk (fucking twisted movie)
I kinda like his stuff, but I’m really getting sick of seeing him everywhere with that same dumb hockey jersey and backwards cap on. Most of the shit that comes out of his mouth is pretty dumb as well. I do enjoy the movies, but he’s wearing thin.
Omg, this. I can’t stand that hockey jersey.
Agreed. Jersey Girl was awful. My GF (now wife) had to keep waking me up when we watched it. Tried to watch it again and all I did was sleep through what I saw.
I love his shit, I even really like his on tour shit. Some of the shit he comes up with or stories he tells are classic.
OMG. Mallrats is one of my all time favs!!! FLY FAT ASS, FLY!!! So many great lines that I probably subconsciously use on a regular basis.
T.S. Quint: But they’re engaged.
Brodie: Doesn’t matter, it can’t happen.
T.S. Quint: Why not? It’s bound to come up.
Brodie: It’s impossible. Lois could never have Superman’s baby. Do you think her fallopian tubes could handle his sperm? I guarantee he blows a load like a shotgun right through her back. What about her womb? Do you think it’s strong enough to carry his child?
T.S. Quint: Sure, why not?
Brodie: He’s an alien, for Christ sake. His Kyrptonian biological makeup is enhanced by Earth’s yellow sun. If Lois gets a tan, the kid could kick right through her stomach. Only someone like Wonder Woman has a strong enough uterus to carry his kid. The only way he could bang regular chicks is with a Kryptonite condom, but that would kill him.
Jason Lee Confirmed for the sequel. No way he wasn’t going to be in this movie.
Of course he’s doing it. The man has been unemployed! lol.
Really? I just clicked on it and watched it.
says for me its blocked due to copyright. maybe it doesnt affect canada?
Anything that Kevin puts his name on is pure fucking gold! This is gonna be awesome and all but I want my god damn Clerks 3!!! I seem to remember a couple years back he was quoted saying that was gonna be the last comedy he does and was gonna focus more on Tusk/Red State type shit
yeah, then they failed… I actually think its pressure… i dont think he likes being pressured to make movies, so when everyone says “make _____” he’s like fuck you i’ll do this… but when it dies down and he can get his shit together for something worth making, he decides to make them.
