Several months back, Kevin Smith delivered to the masses Jay and Silent Bob Reboot, his return to the live-action View Asknewiverse after more than a decade away. But it wasn’t the first time he attempted to revisit this shared world that launched with his film debut, Clerks. At one time he was getting a Mallrats sequel together, and while things didn’t work out with that, it appears that Smith has revived the project.
With the “Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” tour still going, it looks like a sequel to “Mallrats” is one of the projects next on the list for filmmaker Kevin Smith. Smith has long teased a follow-up to the 1995 indie comedy – first in film, then TV form, but now he’s come back to the movie idea.
A new Instagram post indicates he’s starting work on the script for a film he calls “Twilight of the Mallrats” to join the also in the works third “Clerks” script, and he’s not sure which he’ll make first.
Smith says in his post:
“I’m off to a fun start by writing stuff for Brodie Bruce & Co. to say in the new script I’m calling TWILIGHT OF THE MALLRATS! The CLERKS III script is also underway, so we’ll see which flick will be my first film of the roaring 2020s”
“Jay and Silent Bob Reboot” will continue its roadshow through February, closing out in New Orleans. We can’t wait for this to actually happen! Well keep you posted with any updates.
