As you know, Clerks director Kevin Smith is soon to be going into production of the new Clerks sequel Clerks 3, as well as having his own Biopic ‘Shooting Clerks’ just around the corner, but what may not as well known, that is unless you follow his social media feeds, is that he is in the early stages of casting Mallrats 2.
This is something that is extremely exciting to me, as Mallrats is one of my favorite, if not my favorite, film going.
So far, nearly the entire cast of Mallrats is already aboard including; Jason Lee, Jeremy London, Shannen Doherty, Ethan Suplee, Michael Rooker, Jason Mewes, Stan Lee, Joey Lauren Adams, Renee Humphrey and Sven Ole-Thorsen as well as Smith himself. We are still waiting for four more members to be announced, which will bring up the total to a glorious 15 members of the original cast returning to reprise their roles.
Smith originally only teased 11 returning, so for him to now bring it to 15 is something that is really exciting for fans of the original film.
Filming is slated to start spring 2016.
Are you as excited as I am? Are you a fan of the original and if so, do you think that after 20 years, a sequel is a good idea? or would you rather see Mallrats continued on in another medium?
