Jason Lee and Shannen Doherty will return for Kevin Smith's Mallrats 2

03.24.2015

Kevin Smith has wasted no time assembling his MALLRATS 2 cast, despite several other projects (CLERKS III, HIT SOMEBODY, MOOSE JAWS) initially standing between now and then. Last we heard, Smith assembled Jason Mewes, Stan Lee and Michael Rooker to take a return trip to the mall. Today we have confirmation that (arguably) the star of the show has returned; Jason Lee. While the story of MALLRATS didn't win anyone over, Jason Lee's performance as Brodie Bruce did, and paved the way for him to kick ass in future Smith movies like CHASING AMY and DOGMA. Aside from his bit part in CLERKS II and JAY AND SILENT BOB STRIKE BACK, this will mark the first time Jason Lee has taken a major role in a Kevin Smith movie since 1999's DOGMA. He's not alone, as his MALLRATS girlfriend, Shannen Doherty, will also be making an appearance.

Kevin Smith on the above picture:

"Saaayyy... Would YOU like a chocolate covered pretzel?" BRODIE IS BACK! So by the end of this year, Jason Lee is coming to the MALL, ya'll! 6 down, 6 to go! Collect 'em all!

Smith on Shannen Doherty returning:

"Brenda?"

On the new Hollywood Babble On , Shannen Doherty says she's going back to the Mall, ya'll! This is special to me because it was Shando herself who single-handedly got MALLRATS the green-light back in '95! So Rene returns, as the RATS roll call continues! 5 down and 7 to go! Collect 'em all!

Kevin Smith notes that there are now 6 down and 6 to go. We could surmise that Jeremy London and Claire Forlani (TS Quint and Brandi, respectively), being the other two leads of MALLRATS, are definitely 2 of them. If I was a betting man, I'd say that Joey Lauren Adams, Ethan Suplee, Renee Humphrey, and Ben Affleck are the other 4. I'd imagine Affleck's schedule is a little packed these days with detective work, but I'd love to see a plot involving his character, who likes to screw people in a very uncomfortable place, exacting revenge on Brodie. It's worth noting that Smith initially said shooting ON MALLRATS 2 would start in 2016, but he states that, "by the end of this year, Jason Lee is coming to the MALL, ya'll!" Either way, I'm happy to see the momentum continue on a sequel I'd never thought we'd get!

MALLRATS 2 should go into production late 2015, at the earliest.

I'll watch this.

I hope they can get Priscilla Barnes back. She definitely left an impression on me...and that nipple.

I honestly don't think Affleck would do this for Smith at this point in his career....

I could be wrong, but Affleck appears to be in too deep with the Hollywood Political Elite Circled to "stoop" to doing a cameo in this movie. He's done lots of appearances for Kevin Smith so he doesn't really owe him and I just dont see him doing this. George Clooney and Brad Pitt probably won't let him.

So if one of the last 6 is Affleck, what are the odds?

Would not be the same without Lee giving us another stank-palm and being worried about the Things rock hard member. This is actually my favorite Smith film.

Please let this be about the death of malls...

Malls are sadly dying so what would be better than an adventure in the same mall from the original, but have it be like a wasteland. Store closing, targets popping up INSIDE malls and walmarts opening right across the street.

This could be great!

Love Mallrats Dialogue..

The dialogue in Mallrats was hilarious, witty, and smart. The film as a whole is pretty bad if you go back and watch it. That being said, Ive seen it quite a few times so the dialogue wins out. I don't think Kevin Smith can really hurt the original since its not any kind of masterpiece and I think its a win-win situation for Smith to revisit this territory along with Clerks III. So what's left, a sequel to Dogma, Jay & Silent Bob 2?

Coolness, glad that everyone seems enthusiastic to come back, it's probably my favorite Kevin Smith film.

Love the original, but this just seems like an easy paycheck for all involved thus far.

To be fair, this is gonna be a micro-budget film and I could be wrong, but I expect the paychecks to be very, very small for those working on this. Kevin Smith has NEVER had a mainstream hit movie. All his success has come from cult following and home video sales. Studios don't back him up on these movies so he finds alternate financing.

Jason Lee is tired of acting with singing chipmunks

and Shannen Doherty hasn't had a decent gig since she got kicked off Charmed. Not surprised that they've made themselves available. I don't think any of the other actors (other than Affleck) have made any kind of major splash in the past 20 years, so assembling the original cast should be fairly easy.
