Over the weekend at New York Comic Con, writer and director Kevin Smith moderated a panel for the upcoming Ash vs. The Evil Dead, which showed its first episode to much praise. But while hosting the event, Smith took it upon himself to promote his next venture, and ask a favour of Bruce Campbell.
“At the end of the panel, I saw my moment and I took it.” Smith told the audience at the recording of his Hollywood Babble On podcast. “I’m gonna do it in front of everyone, the best time to ask somebody is to publicly shame them. So I said, ‘Bruce, in January we make a movie called Mallrats 2 – will you be in it?’ And he goes, ‘yes’. So he’s in it.”

Back in May, writer-director Kevin Smith revealed that he had finished the script for his sequel to Mallrats, entitled MallBrats, with most of the main cast from the original comedy already confirmed to return. That was the last update we had on the project, until today, when Kevin Smith announced that filming will begin in January 2016, at the Exton Square Mall in Exton, Pennsylvania. Here's what the filmmaker had to say on his official Facebook page.
"We found our Mall, y'all! This January, the @extonsquaremall in Exton, Pa will star in ‪#‎Mallrats‬ 2! @jayandsilentbob are coming to Chester County! Big thanks to financiers StarStream, who found the mall & the money! They're making this ‪#‎MR2‬ dream come true!"

Kevin Smith is making good on his promise to deliver Mallrats 2 as his next film, announcing today that the first draft of the screenplay is finished and that the official title of the movie is MallBrats. While the writer/director didn't offer any new plot details, the title surely hints that the original characters will be bringing some of their children into the mix this time around. The filmmaker also used this moment to remember original Mallrats producer Jim Jacks. He says:
"20 years in the making. 113 pages fulla old friends & new jokes. This is for you, Jim. Wish you were here. #MallBrats"
Jim Jacks had always wanted to make a sequel to the original Mallrats. Saldy, he passed away a little over a year ago. His untimely death helped motivate and push to see the film become a reality. At this time, the sequel does not have a release date. »
Smith plans to shoot MallBrats later this year for an expected release in 2016, and has so far confirmed that Jason Lee, Jeremy London, Jason Mewes, Shannen Doherty, Ethan Suplee, Joey Lauren Adams, Renee Humphrey, , Claire Forlani, Michael Rooker, Sven-Ole Thorsen, Brian O’HalloranBryan Johnson, Walt Flanagan, Scott Mosier and Stan Lee will all be back.

While more often than not, most biopics are usually reserved for popular musicians and Apple Computer CEOs. But the upcoming dramatic comedy Shooting Clerks revolves around indie director-turned-cult icon Kevin Smith. The story follows a young Kevin as he sets out to raise $27,000 to make his black and white comedy Clerks, which went onto become a surprise hit way back in 1994. The new film was written and directed by Christopher Downie, with the full cooperation of Kevin Smith.
Kevin Smith actually appears in the film, as do other Clerks participants such as Jason Mewes and Brian O'Halloran. The film hit IndieGoGo last year to raise money for production and now we have a first look with a teaser trailer. As for the story, no synopsis has been released, but we imagine it tracks Smith's efforts to get the movie off the ground, along with a look at what was happening »
While Kevin Smith is rounding up the cast to shoot Mallrats 2 next year, right now he's getting ready to shoot Clerks 3. And coincidentally, this fall will bring a biopic about how the filmmaker launched his career with the original Clerks, an indie hit at Sundance in 1993. Shooting Clerks will feature familiar faces like Smith himself, Jason Mewes, Brian O’Halloran, Scott Mosier, Walter Flanagan and more, but they won't be playing the character's from Smith's film or even themselves. Instead an unknown cast is bringing to life these characters in the story of how Clerks came to be, and a teaser trailer has just arrived. It looks like a student film, but in a charming way, and seems to be something that Smith's fans will enjoy. Watch? Here's the teaser trailer for Christopher Downie's Shooting Clerks from ScreenRant: Shooting Clerks is written and directed by Christopher Downie. The »
