It was only a couple of weeks ago that Kevin Smith mooted the possibility of a Mallrats sequel taking place at some point down the track, and now the director has announced that the film will be his very next project.
Speaking on his own Hollywood Babble-On podcast, Smith revealed that Mallrats 2has been brought forwards thanks to the sudden availability of a real shopping mall that will give him free rein to shoot until it is demolished. And according to Smith, that demolition might play a part in the plot itself…
Smith had initially planned to make Clerks 3 the next shoot on his agenda, but as he puts it himself, “now, based on a fucking mall that we all dig that will be going away, the priority has become Mallrats… So the next fucking movie I’m making is Mallrats 2.”
Smith also went on to say that there’s, “no word on Batfleck yet…but it would be fun to see if we could get him.”
