1 hour ago | | See recent news »

Here are a bunch of little bites to satisfy your hunger for movie culture:   Check out the very violent and fantastical original ending for Kevin Smith's Red State, which has been animated below with Smith narrating (via Slashfilm):   This look at the behind the scenes of the filming of the MGM logo is obviously not real, but poor lion either way (via Emma Green):   Supercut maker Roman Holiday is on a mission to boil movies down to just their close-ups.

'Mallrats 2' Brings Back Jeremy London and Ethan Suplee

3 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Over the past seven days, director Kevin Smith has had a number of his Mallrats stars confirmed to return in Mallrats 2. The filmmaker revealed on his Twitter page that the next two additions are Jeremy London and Ethan Suplee, reprising their roles as T.S. Quint and William, respectively. They join the filmmaker himself, returning as Silent Bob, Jason Mewes (Jay), Jason Lee (Brody), Stan Lee (Himself), Michael Rooker (Mr. Svenning) and Shannen Doherty (Rene). At this rate, the filmmaker could have his entire cast lined up by next week.

The director mentioned that, after these latest casting additions, he now has "8 down, 4 to go." It is believed that Kevin Smith is referring to Mallrats stars Claire Forlani (Brandi Svenning), Joey Lauren Adams (Gwen), Ben Affleck (Shannon) and Ren&#233e Humphrey (Trish). Given how busy Ben Affleck's schedule is, it isn't known if he would come back for the sequel, »

Jeremy London & Ethan Suplee Confirmed to Return for 'Mallrats 2'

12 hours ago | | See recent news »

Earlier this week, Kevin Smith confirmed the return of Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty reprising their character in Mallrats 2. At the time, Smith was touting that he still had six to go, and it looks like two more have been locked down. Jeremy London, who played the pining ex-boyfriend of Claire Forlani in the original 1995 film, will be back as T.S. Quint. We're not sure where his relationship stands after the two got married at the end of the original Mallrats, but we'll surely find out. In addition, one of the memorable side characters from the mall will be back with Ethan Suplee back as William, who finally saw that sailboat. Here's Kevin Smith making the two casting announcements on Twitter: Willam still can't see the goddamned sailboat! L'il @EthanSuplee is going back to Mall, ya'll! 7 down, 5 to go! #MR2— KevinSmith (@ThatKevinSmith) March 25, 2015 T.S. »

14 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Another day, another original cast member joins the cast of Mallrats 2.

We heard the other day that his partner in crime Jason Lee was looking to buy some more chocolate covered pretzels, and now director Kevin Smith has announced via his social media channels that T.S could ruin some more mall-based game shows.

Yep, Jeremy London has joined the cast of Mallrats 2. Check out the tweet below:

T.S. Quint proposes a return to the Jaws ride! @SirJeremyLondon going back to the Mall, ya’ll! 8 down, 4 to go! #MR2

Many fans have felt that London was the weak link in the original Mallrats, released back in 1995, as he was constantly forgetting lines on-set. Smith admitted during the director’s commentary that London spent the majority of the filmed stoned, hence his performance. Given Smith’s new taste for life, they might get »

16 hours ago | | See recent JoBlo news »

The hunt for the original Mallrats cast members continues and Kevin Smith has two more to add to the list. Now confirmed is Jeremy London, who played opposite Jason Lee as leading man T.S. Quint. Not to be confused with his twin brother Jason London (Dazed And Confused), Jeremy has been plenty busy himself with more obscure flicks as of late. He's not alone, however, as sailboat seeker Ethan Suplee is also a returning cast member. The dude has lost a ton of weight, but there's »

Fans of Kevin Smith's ambitious Red State may know the film was originally intended to have a very different and very violent ending. Smith would often talk about how he wanted the film to end, but due to budgetary reasons just couldn't pull off the effect.

But now, due to the advanced technology of animation, the apocalyptic finale to Smith's already violent movie has made it's debut as part of EW's Scene Unseen series!

Will Ferrell: His Ten Best Films

26 March 2015 9:32 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Consider this a bit of an experiment today. Instead of doing something like what I used to do with the Spotlight on the Stars series, I’m going to try honoring an actor or a filmmaker with a personalized top ten list. We’ll start off with none other than Will Ferrell, who happens to have the new comedy Get Hard hitting theaters this weekend. This initial piece will look at the ten best movies he’s been in, as opposed to just his best performances, but those will be contained within this list too, of course, so fear not. Anyway, let’s give this a shot and see how it goes! Here now, without any delay, are the ten best films that Ferrell has found himself a cast member in… 10.

Jason Lee, Shannen Doherty And More Back For Mallrats 2

25 March 2015 1:43 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Kevin Smith’s Mallrats 2 is proliferating the filmmaker’s social media streams in the best way possible. The writer-director last week confirmed that he had started developing a sequel to his 1995 cult classic and has now begun rounding up his Mallrats alumni.

In the days that have followed, a number of images featuring stars of the flick have cropped up on Smith’s Twitter and Instagram. Whether they are holding up two fingers or referencing a specific – ahem, chocolate-covered pretzel anyone? – scene, the fact of that matter is clear: the gang is getting back together. Jason Lee is now officially back as Brodie, along with Shannen Doherty who played his long-suffering girlfriend, Renee.

“Would You like a chocolate covered pretzel?” Brodie Is Back! JasonLee’s going to the Mall, ya’ll! 6 more to go! #MR2

'Mallrats 2': Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty Will Return!

24 March 2015 6:55 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ever since Kevin Smith confirmed last week that his upcoming sequel Mallrats 2 is happening, the filmmaker has quickly been re-assembling his cast from the 1995 cult classic Mallrats. The director teased last week that original Mallrats stars Jason Mewes, Michael Rooker and Stan Lee will be back, and now he has confirmed two more cast members, Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty. Shannen Doherty was actually a guest on Kevin Smith's Hollywood Babble On podcast, where she confirmed that she will come back. Here's what the director had to say yesterday in a message to his fans.

"'Brenda?' On the new Hollywood Babble On, Shannen Doherty says she's going back to the Mall, ya'll! This is special to me because it was Shando herself who single-handedly got Mallrats the green-light back in '95! So Rene returns, as the Rats roll call continues! 5 down and 7 to go! Collect 'em all! &#8234#&#8206MR2&#8236"

The Perfect Way Jason Lee Announced He'll Be Back For Mallrats 2

24 March 2015 12:42 PM, PDT | | See recent Cinema Blend news »

It's pretty easy to argue that Jason Lee's Brodie Bruce is the best part of Kevin Smith's Mallrats, so it only makes sense that he would be included amongst the group of actors reuniting for the upcoming sequel, Mallrats 2. That being said, the announcement about the star's agreement to be in the movie is still the best one we've seen yet.

Well you couldn’t have a Mallrats sequel without him, could you?

Director Kevin Smith took to Twitter and Facebook today to announce that Brodie himself Jason Lee will be returning for Mallrats 2, which is set to start shooting later on this year. This is on the heels of Smith confirming Shannen Doherty yesterday and Michael Rooker, Stan Lee and Jason Mewes last week. Smith also mentioned on his Hollywood Babble On podcast that his co-host Ralph Garman would also have a role.

Kevin Smith Confirms Return of Jason Lee & Others for 'Mallrats 2'

24 March 2015 9:48 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Last week, writer and director Kevin Smith confirmed that he's going to make Mallrats 2, and even explained why he felt compelled to do it after 20 years. And now he's starting to firm up the returning cast from the 1995 comedy, and easily the most important part of the original ensemble was that of Jason Lee. Thankfully, Smith has just confirmed on Twitter that Lee will absolutely be back as Brodie Bruce, though we still don't know where we'll find his character 20 years later. At the end of the first Mallrats, he went on to host "The Tonight Show," and then in Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back he was running a comic book shop. Here's the photo Kevin Smith posted to Twitter with Jason Lee and a familiar prop: "Would You like a chocolate covered pretzel?" Brodie Is Back!
