Kevin Smith hails the return of Brodie as he finishes Mallrats sequel script

Productivity is not a word that I would be quick to associate with being quarantined, though over the past several weeks, some have managed to accomplish much with regard to chores or work-related projects. One filmmaker who’s making good use of his time is Kevin Smith, who recently announced that he’s finally finished the first draft of his “unneccesary” Mallrats sequel, titled TWILIGHT OF THE MALLRATS.

The way Smith tells it, his Mallrats sequel will see the return of many characters from the original film, including Rene (Shannen Doherty), Willam (Ethan Suplee), Gwen (Joey Lauren Adams), Brandy (Claire Forlani), T.S. (Jeremy London), Trish (Renée Humphrey), Mr. Svenning (Michael Rooker), LaFours (Sven-Ole Thorsen), and Jay and Silent Bob (Jason Mewes and Smith). While this is an exciting update to be certain, I can’t help but notice that Ben Affleck‘s dickish Mallrats character, Shannon, is missing from the list. Perhaps Smith is keeping Affleck’s involvement under wraps for the time being, or Shannon is still rotting in jail after being hauled off by the cops at the end of the film. Your guess is as good as mine, so I suppose we’ll just have to wait and see how things shake out.

 

 

Thanks in part to the #Quarantine, I finally finished a funny first draft of “TWILIGHT OF THE MALLRATS”! 25 years after the original, Brodie Bruce will be back for an unnecessary sequel set against the Mallpocalypse! Rene, Willam, Gwen, Brandy, T.S., Trish, Mr. Svenning, LaFours and the rebooted @jayandsilentbob are the returning ‘Rats in an Askewniverse imagining about what happens when the sidewalk sales end, and “happily ever after” is easier to say than live! The #jayandsilentbob stuff is some of my favorite conceptual comedy I’ve ever written but the whole script is silly, sentimental and sweet. And at 98 pages, the story moves like a brakeless bullet train! It’ll be months before we can actually shoot it, but if you wanna know the backstory, I recorded an entire episode about “Twilight of the Mallrats” for my new podcast, “Silent Bob Speaks” – available at That Kevin Smith Club (link in my bio)! And now that *this* script is done, it’s on to a new draft of #moosejaws and then the first draft of the new version of #clerks3! #KevinSmith #mallrats #brodiebruce #twilightofthemallrats #movie #90s #screenplay #coverpage

In addition to the above-mentioned stars, Smith recently revealed that none other than Bruce Campbell will also be joining the Mallrats cast. That’s right, folks, the Chin himself. Talk about classing up the joint!
