Kevin Smith making Mallrats 2 next, Clerks 3 pushed back

8 April 2015 12:16 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

In a change to his original schedule, Kevin Smith's set to make Mallrats 2 next and not Clerks 3 as originally planned...

It's not often that we hear of a building demolition significantly altering a director's plans, but that's exactly what's happened to Kevin Smith.

Smith's original schedule would have seen him direct a second sequel to the cult hit Clerks later this year. After that, he was planning to direct Mallrats 2, a sequel to his 1995 comedy, in spring 2016.

But Smith has since learned that the shopping mall where he plans to shoot Mallrats 2 is to be torn down within the next year or so - which means he's altered his filming schedule to compensate.

"...we were talking about initially shooting Clerks 3 this summer and then we were going to get to Mallrats in the beginning of 2016," Smith explained on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast. "And then it jumped into »

'Mallrats 2' Will Be Kevin Smith's Next Movie

7 April 2015 6:29 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Kevin Smith, who once claimed he was retiring from directing, has quite the feature film slate line-up over the course of the next two years. But he is now changing those plans somewhat, pushing the sequel Mallrats 2 to the forefront. The comedy was originally announced for an early 2016 start date. That changed to late 2015. But now it seems the movie will come first on the docket to take advantage of a key shooting location that may not be around very much longer, with production set to start sometime soon.

The original plan saw Kevin Smith, who just finished shooting the second film in his True North Trilogy Yoga Hosers, doing Clerks III next, followed by his hockey epic Hit Somebody, and the True North trilogy ending Moose Jaws after that. Mallrats 2 was originally the last of these four movies set to move into production. But Kevin Smith has pulled his »

Kevin Smith Confirms Mallrats 2 Will Shoot This Year Before Clerks 3

7 April 2015 1:52 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

A few weeks back, the prospect of a Mallrats sequel was hinted at in a cheeky Facebook post by director Kevin Smith. In the short period to follow, the project has gone from “a glint in the eye” to an official production on Smith’s forthcoming slate. Fitting in into his hectic year ahead saw Clerks 3 take precedent, with Mallrats 2 earmarked for an early 2016 shoot.

My how the tables have turned, as Smith announced on his weekly Hollywood Babble-On show (via Slash Film) that the two sequels are now being shot in the reverse order. Due to some timetable logistics, Mallrats 2 is set to shoot this year and Clerks 3 will take the early 2016 slot.

Read on for a transcription of Smith’s comments, but beware, there’s a major plot spoiler buried in the middle:

Kevin Smith Adds More Cast Members To Mallrats 2

1 April 2015 2:45 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Talk of Mallrats 2 continues to escalate into further bouts of social media madness as director Kevin Smith has opted to use Twitter as a casting announcement tool. In the last couple of weeks, the status of the shopping-centric sequel has gone from non-existent to very much on Smith’s upcoming production slate. And of course, as the film falls within his very own View Askewniverse, he’s intent on roping in all of the main players from the 1995 caper to reprise their roles. Which is just plain brilliant.

So far, the returnees are: Jason Lee as Brodie Bruce, Shannen Doherty as Renee, Smith as Silent Bob, Jason Mewes as his mouthy buddy Jay, Ethan Suplee as Willam, Stan Lee as himself and Michael Rooker as the pretzel-eating Mr. Svenning.

Ready for more? Here’s Smith’s latest batch of confirmed recruits:

'Mallrats 2' Also Gets Joey Lauren Adams & Renee Humphrey

1 April 2015 2:38 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Director Kevin Smith continues to add more and more cast members for his upcoming sequel Mallrats 2, with original Mallrats stars Joey Lauren Adams (Gwen), Ren&#233e Humphrey (Trish) and Sven-Ole Thorsen (Lafours) coming back to reprise their roles. They join director/star Kevin Smith (Silent Bob), Jason Mewes (Jay), Ethan Suplee (William), Jason Lee (Brodie), Stan Lee (Himself), Michael Rooker (Mr Svenning), Shannen Doherty (Rene) and Jeremy London (T.S. Quint). What's interesting is it seems the director is bringing even more actors from Mallrats on board than originally planned.

When Kevin Smith revealed that Jeremy London was coming back last week, his tweet said "8 down, 4 to go," implying that he has four more Mallrats cast members left to add. However, when the director announced Sven-Ole Thorsen's casting today, he said, "11 down, now 4 to go." Two of the main Mallrats cast members that have not been confirmed yet are »

Kevin Smith: “Mallrats 2″ represents the rare 90’s movie reunion

30 March 2015 12:40 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

As a pretty big fan of filmmaker Kevin Smith, I tend to be inclined to support whatever project he’s interested in making, be it a new movie, a new podcast, or anything in between. Even so, I was initially a bit confused as to why Smith was looking to follow up Clerks III (which I’m hugely looking forward to) and his next two Canadian set genre outings (this year’s Yoga Hosers and the still to be shot Moose Jaws) with a sequel to Mallards. Yes, it’s developed over the years from a box office disappointment to one of his most beloved titles, but was anyone yearning for Mallrats 2? Then, I listened to Smith explain why and now, not just am I on board, I think it has the potential to be the rare 90’s movie reunion that really works. The reason that Smith decided to make »

'Shooting Clerks' Trailer: Kevin Smith Gets a Biopic

30 March 2015 10:38 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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 »

Kevin Smith Indie Biopic 'Shooting Clerks' Debuts First Teaser Trailer

30 March 2015 7:30 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

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 »

Jeremy London Is Latest to Join Mallrats 2—Which Other Former Cast Members Are Returning?

28 March 2015 7:58 AM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

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.

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

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"

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.

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

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.
