Remember yesterday we reported that writer/director Kevin Smith may have teased Mallrats 2? Well, it was a tease. And now it’s confirmed.
On Rock 102 Mornings with Shmonty and Carolina yesterday, Smith confirmed that he wants to return to the movie he made way back in 1995 (Mallrats is 20!?): “Yeah, that’s what we’re working on.” Smith confirmed.
“It’s half a script right now and we’re pulling our loot together. We’ve got up until the beginning of 2016. By the time we get to May 2016, we’re going to be shooting.
“Lately I’ve been doing this thing where I’m like ‘Do you want to do what’s good for your career or do you just want to have fun? Nobody’s clamoring for a Mallrats sequel, but I would love to make one.”
The interview is below for your listening pleasure…
So there you have it, Mallrats 2 films next year. Will Jason Lee, Jeremy London, Ben Affleck, Shannon Doherty and Joey Lauren Adams be up for a return? Well, we certainly hope so.
