Kevin Smith‘s career changing movie Red State could have gone in a very different direction. Smith has gone on the record saying that he had a different ending of the film in mind when he first wrote the script.

In other interviews, Smith has said what he wanted that ending to be but – in case you haven’t read it – I won’t say it here. Especially because Smith has proved Entertainment Weekly with an animated version of this original vision and it’s absolutely insane, especially if you don’t know what’s coming.

“I hate to disappoint people but, yes, I am doing a Mallrats sequel.” That was Kevin Smith speaking last Friday on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast. He made the statement after a tweet of his suggested he plans to do a follow-up to the 1995 cult comedy which bombed at the box office but became a fan favorite in the years since. Now we know he is making the film.
Smith also told his listeners the reason why he’d decided now, 20 years later, to do Mallrats 2. It’s simple: producer James Jacks. Jacks produced Mallrats and would always joke with Smith about making a sequel. He passed away last year and Smith decided that finally making the movie Jacks wanted to see would be a beautiful tribute to him.
