Can you believe that Kevin Smith’s second movie Mallrats was released in 1995? Well, the sequel just might be on its way in 2021.
Writer, director, and podcast aficionado Kevin Smith revealed to Entertainment Weekly that Twilight of the Mallrats would see the cast back together again. In the article, Smith was quoted hinting,
Looks like we’re heading toward it now in 2021, which is very exciting for us. It takes place 25 years after the original and features the entire cast, [and] a new cast of characters as well. It’s about Brodie and his daughter and the death of the mall. The Brodie that we met in ‘Mallrats’ has only been proven right in life. The world came around to his way of thinking. So, based on that, Brodie never really had to grow up, and now, at this juncture in time, we face the moment when he might actually have to become an adult.
Mallrats followed two friends who were recently dumped and try to find comfort at the mall. While at the mall, T.S. Quint (Jeremy London) and Brodie Bruce (Jason Lee) find out their exes are there where a reality show is being filmed and decide to win them back. They meet Jay (Jason Mewes) and Silent Bob (Kevin Smith) and even get them to help out with their plan during the shenanigans. The film featured Jason Mewes, Kevin Smith, Shannen Doherty, Jason Lee, Ben Affleck, Claire Forlani, Jeremy London, Priscilla Barnes, Michael Rooker, and more. It even included the icon of cameos, the legendary Stan Lee.
