Mallrats 2 is happening says Kevin Smith!

If you didn’t know already, i am a HUGE Kevin Smith fan. Clerks may be his most famous film, but it was Mallrats that introduced me to the directors little world. I remembered watching it at least once a day for about 2-3 weeks. So to hear that there is a sequel planned to the first film excites me! Jason Lee and Ben Affleck would for sure have to be back. Kevin Smith recently spoke to a radio station about the news:

“It has a script right now and we’re pulling out loot together. We have got up until the beginning of 2016, so by the time we get to May 2016, we should be shooting. It kind of came out of nowhere. Lately I’ve been doing this thing where it’s like, ‘Well, do you want to do what’s good for your career, or do you want to have fun?’ Nobody is clamoring for a Mallrats sequel, but I’d love to make one. I had a cool idea and a bunch of investors that were like, ‘Do it’ so here we are.”

He also said talked about the excitement from the fans following his tweet about the movie:

“It was crazy, people reacted to that and I saw people be like ‘Oh. Really?’ But there were a lot of people who were like ‘Holy crap, this is cool!’ So now, once again, there are people to disappoint, and I’m sure I will disappoint them, but right now it’s that wonderful period of like, ‘This could be excellent!’ Probably won’t be, but…”
