Well, is it coming or what? Yes, Mallrats 2 is coming according to filmmaker Kevin Smith. The writer/director first teased the sequel on his Twitter before clarifying on his podcast. Now, he’s gone a step further and teased two key ingredients in the first film that could be back for the follow-up. They are Stan Lee, who played himself in the original, and Michael Rooker, who played the evil Mr. Svenning, father to Brandy, who married TS when Jaws popped out of the water.

“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.

The post Red State Kevin Smith is a workaholic. He’s making movie (Tusk) after movie (Yoga Hosers) and now he may be doing a follow up one of his most beloved.

Thursday, Smith tweeted his upcoming schedule for the next year and a half. Clerks III shoots in May, the Canadian hockey mini-series Hit Somebody shoots in the Fall and Winter, then he makes Moose Jaws in early 2016. The writer/director then dropped this line “But after that? I smell a rat…” Sounds like he might be going back to the mall for a sequel to his cult hit Mallrats.
