Mallrats 2 is on the way!

Mallrats 2 is on the way!

A sequel to the 1995 comedy from Kevin Smith “Mallrats” has been announced by the filmmaker. What started as a hint on social media when chatting about upcoming projects, quickly turned into confirmation followed by a series of casting announcements.

Smith is filming Clerks 3 this year, before returning to finish off his True North trilogy of films with Moose Jaws, after which he’ll be setting his sights on a sequel to the second film in his Viewaskewniverse, with the long in development Hockey love letter Hit Somebody being made somewhere along the way.

So who’s coming back?

Well we’ve got Michael Rooker returning to his chocolate coated pretzel loving character of Jared Svenning who was announced alongside Smith’s hetero life mate Jason Mews, and god of marvel comics Stan Lee.

Since then Shannen Doherty was announced as coming back to the Rene role (I couldn’t help but almost write Brenda then), and best of all the most recent announcement is Jason Lee!!!

So there you have it mall dwellers, Mallrats 2 is a coming, but the question is when? With Smith’s current line-up it’s looking like there’s a decent wait so maybe we’ll see it around 2017? In the meantime, Clerks 3!


Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
