Kevin Smith recently let loose a barrage of info about the new Mallrats movie. We can all stop calling it Mallrats 2, though it'll take a while to do so. The new movie will be titled MallBrats (I get it) and features the tagline "It's mall or nothing!" As Smith stated in a recent Facebook post, "IT'S MALL OR NOTHING! 20 years in the making. 113 pages fulla old friends, new jokes and a bloody battle with Stan Lee! This is for you, Jim. Wish you were here... #MallBrats" Jim refers to James Jacks, a producer for the original movie whom passed away a year ago, in part spurring Kevin's decision to begin work on a sequel.
Earlier this year, Smith stated that shooting for the movie would begin in 2016. Prior to this however, Smith is also working on the almighty Clerks III, and a new entity entitled Hit Somebody. Names such as Jason Lee, Michael Rooker, Jason Mewes, Shannon Doherty, and Ethan Suplee have already been confirmed to be making return appearances in the new flick. So yeah, there's going to be a barrage of Kevin Smith greatness headed our way, and I can't wait.
