Clerks 3 and Mallrats 2 Scripts

Just over a week ago, we learned from Kevin Smith that he was working on a sequel to Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back that would take aim at Hollywood’s nostalgia obsession by getting nostalgic himself with Jay and Silent Bob Reboot. While that was good news for his most loyal fans, it also came with some bad news about two other projects that took the director back into his own View Askewniverse.

Clerks 3 and Mallrats 2 have been in the works for awhile now, but a couple problems have held them back from being made as feature film. But since Kevin Smith loves his fans, he’s going to make sure that he gets them out to the public in some form. Find out more below. Read More »

Mallrats 2 plot

If you had asked me ten years ago if Kevin Smith would ever have a chance to make a Mallrats sequel, I would have bet against it. And that’s coming from someone who loved the movie and still has a special spot for Smith’s “sophomore bellyflop.” But Smith has not only written Mallrats 2, but it’s also now five hours long and takes the form of a television series (which will probably end up on a cable or streaming network due to graphic language). What will the 10-episode half-hour comedy series be about? Learn details about the Mallrats 2 plot and find out why it became a television series rather than a movie, after the jump.

Mallrats TV Series

It’s been over a year since we heard that Kevin Smith was looking to return to the world of Mallrats with a sequel to his 1995 comedy, which starred Jason Lee and Jeremy London as a couple of meandering twentysomethings trying to figure out their place in the world. The film bombed at the box office over 20 years ago, but it’s a favorite among Kevin Smith’s fans, and it fits right in with the rest of the movies in his View Askew-niverse.

However, we haven’t heard any updates on the sequel since the cast was rounded up and a mall was found for production. It was meant to be shot towards the end of last year before Clerks 3, but that clearly didn’t happen, so what’s going on? Kevin Smith recently gave an update on Mallrats 2, and revealed that it has now been turned into a Mallrats TV series with 10 episodes planned. Find out how this came to be after the jump.
