Kevin Smith is turning his “Mallrats” sequel into a television series

13 June 2016 7:34 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

Go figure, just a few days after I wrote last week about Kevin Smith’s next film Yoga Hosers, some news pops up about another project of his. This one is his sequel to Mallrats, which he is going forward with, just in a new form. As you’ll see below, he’s opted to take the sequel and make it as a series on television, instead of as a film, due to some previously unforeseen circumstances. This is a lemonade out of lemons situation, as well as perhaps a hint as to where Smith could see his career begin to focus in the years to come. Either way, it’s something new and exciting in his evolution as a storyteller. The behind the scenes story here is that initially Mallrats 2 or Mallbrats was going to be a movie, but when Smith submitted his script to Universal, he found out it wouldn’t be quite so simple, as they wouldn’t just release the property to him. However, considering how popular his episode of The Flash was on CW, as well as the upcoming television series take on Buckaroo Banzai that he’s launching (and recently sold), Smith quickly pivoted. Now, we’re getting Mallrats: The Series, a TV show which could really be something fun. It’s everything we want from Smith going back to the mall, just spread out over a season of TV instead of in one movie. Count me in. Here’s what I wrote last year when the sequel was announced as a film: “The initial reason that Smith decided to make Mallrats 2 into a film was to honor his friend and Mallrats producer Jim Jacks, who passed away back in 2014. As a way of honoring Jacks, a man who had once upon a time championed a potential sequel, Smith then decided to make it a reality. As much as this could be just another one of those interesting announcements that go nowhere, that hasn’t been the case. Over the weeks and months, Smith would go on social media slowly teasing all of the former cast members who are coming back to the mall, as it were. That’s pretty impressive, regardless of the cast. For those who don’t remember, Mallrats starred Jeremy London, Jason Lee, Shannen Doherty, Claire Forlani, Ethan Suplee, Michael Rooker, Renee Humphrey, Joey Lauren Adams, Jason Mewes, Ben Affleck, as well as Stan Lee in a cameo and of course Smith himself [...] »

Mallrats 2 Becomes a 10-Episode TV Show

10 June 2016 11:59 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last March, director Kevin Smith revealed that he is making a sequel to his 1995 comedy Mallrats, with the filmmaker teasing the addition of practically every main cast member from the original movie. Last May, the filmmaker said that the sequel will be called MallBrats, and that he has a completed script, with another report from September revealing that shooting would begin in January 2016. That was the last we heard about the project, but during a new radio interview, the filmmaker revealed that this sequel has now transformered into a TV series.

Kevin Smith explained in a previous update that he would shoot Mallrats 2 at the Exton Square Mall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, but as he revealed in a radio interview with Philadelphia's Wmmr, his plan hit a big snag. The director's agent originally told him that Universal would likely just let the rights to Mallrats go for the director to make a sequel. »

6 Co-Stars Who Didn't Get Along on Popular TV Series

25 May 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Do you like everyone you've ever worked with? Even the most chilled-out people butt heads with others sometimes. That tension only gets worse if you're forced to spend a ton of time together while filming. No, not all co-stars are friendly all the time, even if they play two peas in the proverbial pod on TV.

The real-life tiffs between actors can be difficult for fans to digest. As much as you worship the stars of your favorite shows, you also want to believe that some of the relationships playing out on screen are equally poignant and close behind the scenes. These six sets of feuding television cast-mates prove that the stars really are like regular people: Sometimes, they just can't get along.

[Review] Back in the Day

23 May 2016 2:01 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

There’s a certain kind of charm that comes from the kind of potentially mob-affiliated working class that you find in pockets of neighborhoods at the heart of the boxing drama Back in the Day. Written by and starring William DeMeo as Anthony, a kid from Brooklyn, he’s born to an Italian mother Mary (Annabella Sciorra) and Puerto Rican dad Jose (Manny Perez). He’s often the subject of jokes, adding an extra barrier of adversity that fuels his rage from launching firecrackers into a racist neighbor’s window to beating up a neighborhood pedophile — and, boy, can he punch. After his mother dies, young Anthony (played as teen as Christian DeMeo) is soon taken under the wing of powerful mob bosses (Michael Madsen and Alec Baldwin) who support his endeavors to train as an armature boxer under Eddie ‘Rocks’ Trevor (Danny Glover).

A new trailer has arrived online for the upcoming drama Back in the Day which stars William DeMeo, Michael Madsen, Alec Baldwin, Shannen Doherty, Danny Glover and Mike Tyson. Check it out below after the official synopsis…

Set in both the late 80’s and current day, “Back in the Day” is a gritty tale about Anthony Rodriguez, a half Italian – half Puerto Rican young teenager growing up on the streets of Bensonhurst, Brooklyn; a then very dangerous and racist neighborhood filled with bullies, big shots and social clubs where all of the neighborhood shots were called. Anthony had to endure an abusive, unemployed, alcoholic father but was blessed with a nurturing, hard-working mother. In spite of his bitterness, he struggles to uphold the morals his Mother taught him to retain his dignity in spite of being up against all odds. He is taken under the wing of a local mob boss, »

Lick It Up, Baby. Lick It Up

17 March 2016 4:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

“F*ck me gently with a chainsaw,” it looks like Daniel Waters 1989 cult classic Heathers (starring Winona Ryder, Christian Slater and Shannen Doherty among others) will be getting the small-screen treatment in a new anthology series on TV Land. This reincarnation will take place in present-day and feature a modern permutation on the three central “Heathers”. One is a black lesbian, another is a gender-queer male and the third is said to resemble the beleaguered Martha Dumptruck from the original film.

This is not the first cult-classic in recent years to be adapted for television. MTV’s “Scream” (largely eclipsed by “Scream Queens” in the public consciousness) is set to begin its second season May. TV Land itself has also picked up a television adaptation of The First Wives Club set to air next year.

Adaptations of movies into television series is hardly anything new. And there’s certainly precedent »

Now a ‘Heathers’ TV series could be on the way

16 March 2016 11:30 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Remember the 1989 black comedy Heathers? The one where Christian Slater starred opposite Winona Ryder? Well, a TV pilot based on the classic movie has been ordered by TV Land.

The pilot will be set in the present day, and our heroine will be dealing with a very different but equally vicious group of Heathers. The pilotis written by Jason Micallef (Butter).

The original movie didn’t do too well when it was initially released, but gained a cult following in the years that followed, particularly on the home video market.

If you can’t remember the plot, here’s a reminder.

Veronica (Winona Ryder) is part of the most popular clique at her high school, but she disapproves of the other girls’ cruel behavior. When Veronica and her new boyfriend, J.D. (Christian Slater), confront clique leader Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) and accidentally poison her, they make it appear a suicide. »

Someone better tell Martha Dunnstock. Deadline reports TV Land has ordered a script for a new anthology series, based on the 1988 film Heathers, which starred Winona Ryder, Christian Slater, Shannen Doherty, Lisanne Falk, and Kim Walker.

Put away your shoulder pads that Aqua Net, '80s girls. According to the report, this new project is set in the present day. (Should they maybe re-title it Caitlyns?) Jason A. Micallef is writing. Lakeshore Entertainment's Tom Rosenberg and Gary Lucchesi are executive producing.

'Heathers' Anthology Series Is Coming to TV Land

16 March 2016 1:04 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The 1989 cult classic Heathers is about to get a makeover on the small screen, with a new TV series on TV Land. The Hollywood Reporter reveals that TV Land has put a new comedic anthology series based on the movie into development, which will put a much different spin on the story, now set in present-day. The site reports that the anthology aspect of the series will be similar to FX's Fargo, with each season featuring a new group of Heathers in different settings.

The original movie centered on Veronica (Winona Ryder) and her rebel boyfriend J.D. (Christian Slater), who hatch a plot to destroy all of the cool kids at their high school, who are dubbed "Heathers." The new series will center on Veronica, who is dealing with a much different group of Heathers, who are just as evil as they are popular, described as "high school royalty. »

No Plans For A "Charmed" Reunion For Now

7 March 2016 6:50 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

In the wake of "The X-Files" revival and "Fuller House," which show that poor and scathing reviews respectively aren't an impediment to nostalgia-fueled ratings and on demand success, it comes as little surprise that many are talking about other older TV series making a potential comeback with their original cast members.

One show that isn't likely to get a reunion though is The WB's "Charmed," the eight season-long supernatural drama which starred Shannen Doherty, Alyssa Milano, Holly Marie Combs and Rose McGowan as sisters who use their magical powers to fight off evil. CBS tried to revive the series with a pilot for a reboot in 2013. "Party of Five" creator Christopher Keyser and partner Sydney Sidner were behind the script for that, but the project is still in development at last report.

Shannen Doherty Seeks Sanctions Against Ex-Manager in Health Insurance Lawsuit

Shannen Doherty is going after her former manager with renewed vigor, requesting that a judge enter default judgment in her lawsuit against the firm, according to court papers obtained by TheWrap.

In the papers filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, Doherty seeks terminating sanctions, asking that the court either enter default judgment in the case.
