Jason Lee, Shannen Doherty And More Back For Mallrats 2

23 hours ago | 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"

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.

Despite being the secondary character in the movie to T.S., Jason Lee’s Brodie is a firm favourite among Kevin Smith’s characters, and his performance would see him work with Smith on Chasing Amy, »

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

24 March 2015 4:11 AM, PDT | | See recent JoBlo news »

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.

See Jay & Silent Bob Reunite To Hype Mallrats 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.

Kevin Smith teases Mallrats 2

20 March 2015 10:01 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

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

See Also: Kevin Smith explains why he’s doing Mallrats 2; will it be called Mallrats 2: Die Hard in a Mall?

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…

'Guardians' Director on Why Baby Groot Was Afraid of Drax

14 March 2015 9:31 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Ask almost anyone, and they will tell you their favorite scene in Guardians of the Galaxy was at the end, when Baby Groot dances to 'I Want You Back' by the Jackson 5. One question fans have always wondered, though, is: Why was Baby Groot afraid of Drax, and why did he stop dancing when the Destroyer looked his way? Speaking with Doug Loves Movies, director James Gunn finally provided an answer.

According to Gunn, who is busy prepping Guardians of the Galaxy 2 for release in 2017, there was a deleted scene that explains Drax's disdain for dancing. It also better clarifies the relationship between Groot and Drax. The director says:

"There was actually a scene that we cut from the movie where big Groot was dancing to 'Livin' Thing' by Elo. And it wasn't such an elaborate dance. It was more that he was just moving up and down like this, »

James Gunn Responds to Oscar Season Superhero Haters

23 February 2015 3:53 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

This past Saturday afternoon, Nightcrawler director Dan Gilroy took a few moments out during his Independent Spirit Awards speech after winning his 'Best First Feature' award to rally against Hollywood's glut of superhero movies. This was followed by Jack Black taking a couple of shots below the belt during his big Oscars opening musical number. And others have been equally vocal about the many masked vigilantes with extraordinary powers overtaking the box office in recent years. One person who won't stand for the backlash is Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who claims just as much heart goes into making the Marvel movies as any small independent feature. Perhaps even more so.

Gunn, who is in the midst of prepping Guardians of the Galaxy 2, took to his Facebook page to comment on all the superhero movie haters. While he seems okay with Jack Black's jokes, he's not so kind to Dan Gilroy, »
