Kevin announced on his Podcast that he is assembling the Mallrats cast for a sequel.
And he needs a Shopping Mall to blow up...
We require a big old empty mall, and it would be nice if we could do things to the mall. So if you had a mall and the mall was eventually going away, that would let you like blow the f---ing mall up, which happens in the third act. So we found a place that we can go to and in order to get to that mall before it goes away, we were talking about initially shooting Clerks 3 this summer and then we were going to get to Mallrats in the beginning of 2016. And then it jumped into 2015, where we were going to shoot Clerks and then hopefully Mallrats before the end of the year. But now, based on a f---ing mall that we all dig that will be going away, the priority has become Mallrats. So the next f---ing movie I'm making is Mallrats 2.
So this means that eagerly awaited Clerks 3 will have to take a back seat.
But will it include new Batman Ben Affleck?
No word on Batfleck yet...but it would be fun to see if we could get him.
There is also no information about whether or not the next Mallrats will link in with Clerk 3 like in the original movies that were set on consecutive days and had interlinking storylines.
Fear not about one thing though Smith fans, Mallrats 2 is coming! Hopefully sooner rather than later.
