This calls for a round of chocolate-covered pretzels...that should in no way be touched by Brodie. The upcoming sequel to director and writer Kevin Smith's 1995 cult comedy film Mallrats is shaping up to be even better than expected, as most of the original cast members have been confirmed to return. The latest is Jeremy London, 42. He played nice guy T.S., who in the first movie, attempts to win back his ex-girlfriend, Brandi, who is participating in a dating show that is being filmed at a mall. Smith, who also plays Silent Bob, the "hetero life mate" if Bff Jason Mewes' Jay, announced the news on Friday on his Facebook page. Smith has been providing frequent casting updates about »

'Mallrats 2' Brings Back Jeremy London and Ethan Suplee

27 March 2015 6:23 PM, PDT | 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, »

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.

Ethan Suplee confirmed for Mallrats 2

25 March 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Returning to Mallrats 2 is our young man with sailboat issues.

Today Kevin Smith posted on Twitter and Facebook that the visually challenged Mallrat William (Ethan Suplee) is also now back in the gang with Mallrats 2.  Kevin Smith has already confirmed that a number of original cast members are returning including Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty, as well as Michael Rooker, Stan Lee and Jason Mewes . Will we get Jeremy London or Ben Affleck tomorrow?

Here’s Kevin Smith’s Tweet :-

Mallrats was originally released in 1995. Considered a flop at the cinema,it rapidly gained a huge cult following (I myself have a copy that is watched yearly).  Mallrats 2 is expected to start filming next year, while Kevin Smith is currently also in the process of pre-production on Clerks III.

'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"

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

Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty will return for Kevin Smith's Mallrats 2

Kevin Smith has wasted no time assembling his Mallrats 2 cast, despite several other projects (Clerks III, Hit Somebody, Moose Jaws) initially standing between now and then. Last we heard, Smith assembled Jason Mewes, Stan Lee and Michael Rooker to take a return trip to the mall. Today we have confirmation that (arguably) the star of the show has returned; Jason Lee. While the story of Mallrats didn't win anyone over, Jason Lee's performance as Brodie Bruce did, and paved the »

'Mallrats 2' Photo Reunites Stan Lee, Michael Rooker, Jay & Silent Bob

20 March 2015 2:48 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Kevin Smith sent out a mysterious tweet last week, where he revealed his production schedule for the next year and a half, ending with a cryptic hint that a sequel to Mallrats may be happening. Just a few days later, the filmmaker confirmed his plans for the sequel, stating that he could start production by May 2016. Earlier today, Kevin Smith took to his Twitter page once again, hinting that original Mallrats stars Stan Lee, Michael Rooker and Jason Mewes will be back for Mallrats 2. However, the director explained on his Facebook page that they all got together to actually shoot an Audi commercial that will appear online as a tie-in to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he didn't exactly confirm that they will all be back for Mallrats 2. Here's what he had to say below.

Here's Proof That Mallrats 2 Is Happening!

20 March 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

If there was any doubt in your mind that a sequel to Mallrats is on the way, Kevin Smith has just posted evidence.

"It's half scripted right now and we're pulling our loot together," he told a Tucson, Az, radio station on Friday. "By the time we get to May 2016, we're going to be shooting." So, does this mean we can expect another cameo from Lee? We goin' back to the Mall, ya'll!@therealstanlee, @jaymewes, @michael_rooker & me making a number 2.

It.s certainly looking like Kevin Smith.s recent tease of a tweet regarding a sequel to 1995.s absurd but adored comedy, Mallrats was on the level. Smith.s latest tweet may finally confirm what fans have been recently approaching with cautious optimism. With Smith depicting a mini cast reunion and a bold pronouncement, Mallrats 2 clearly isn.t just an optical illusion caused by gratuitous magic eye poster ogling.

Last week Kevin Smith dropped the announcement that he’s set to follow up Clerks III by revisiting the View Askewniverse once more with Mallrats 2, and now the filmmaker has taken to Twitter to tease the sequel, posting an image of himself alongside Jason Mewes, Michael Rooker and Stan Lee

Smith is currently half way through the script for Mallrats 2, but before then he’s got Yoga-Hosers, Clerks III, Hit Somebody, Moose Jaws and Anti-Claus on his slate, so presumably we won’t get to see the sequel until late 2016 at the earliest…

'Mallrats 2' May Shoot in Late 2016 Teases Kevin Smith

12 March 2015 7:25 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

At one point, not too long ago, director Kevin Smith had announced his "retirement," with plans to distribute other independent films not of his making. It didn't take long for the filmmaker to whip up a new slate of movies for himself to direct, though, with last year's Tusk marking the start of his Canadian-set saga known as the True North Trilogy, which will be followed by Yoga Hosers later this year and capped off by Moose Jaws in 2016. The filmmaker took to his Twitter page today to break down his upcoming production schedule, revealing that his long-awaited sequel Clerks III will start shooting this May, followed by Hit Somebody in September and Moose Jaws in February 2016. After that, the director teased, "I smell a rat," hinting that a sequel to his sophomore comedy Mallrats could be next.

Why you should be watching 'King of the Nerds'

20 February 2015 5:30 AM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

The competition between nerds is now in its third season, and you should be tuning in every Friday. Why? Super-nerdy and fun challenges A giant game of Angry Birds. A giant game of Battleship. A giant Rubik's Cube. Quidditch, complete with flying. Robots playing dodge ball. A real-life version of Tron. Nerf guns shooting down drones. Lots of quizzes on nerd-ish trivia. The show's challenges--two each episode, one team challenge and one individual challenge--play on nostalgia and pop culture. They always have a sense of humor, and they're also visually interesting, fair competitions that rival those on bigger shows. Great hosts having fun "King of the Nerds" offers a big portion of wackiness and ridiculousness with a side of self-deprecation, and it's all served on a bed of a serious competition. Hosts and executive producers Curtis Armstrong and Robert Carradine, who starred in "Revenge of the Nerds," set that tone. »
