Earlier this year, Kevin Smith announced that his MALLRATS 2 movie would instead be a 10-episode series. Since then, there's been no news regarding a shooting date or what network it may air on, but as of now, it still looks like a sure thing. Kevin Smith recently gave a small update on the series, speaking mostly about Jason Lee but also that the series would feature his character's son, Banner Bruce. Check it out!

Kevin Smith Jason Lee
I ran into this mall rat in #Denton this weekend. When I met @jasonlee twenty one years ago, he was retiring from a career in professional skateboarding and looking to be a professional actor. But playing Brodie in #Mallrats was only his first step on the road to becoming much more than just a performer: Lee went and became a full-blown artist (if you haven't seen his photography, it's phenomenal). But more than that, he's enabling others to express themselves now, as a member of the arts community in Denton. As proud as I am of all the acting he's done, the fact that he's helping others make their art is a real stink-palm to mediocrity and indifference. I liked him when I met Jason in 1995, but I love him now for the man and artist he's become. I cannot wait to be on the Mallrats series set when this real life Father of three (almost four) brings #BrodieBruce back as the dream Dad to his and Rene's fictional kid, Banner Bruce.

Given Netflix's penchant for reviving cult and classic shows, I wouldn't be surprised if the series ended up there. Still, I'm surprised there's even a demand for a 10-episode series. I enjoy MALLRATS as much as the next person, but I don't know how 10 episodes of it might fare. At any rate, I'm certainly more interested in this than his "True North Trilogy." Seriously, is he done with that yet?

Now that he's out of scientology, I look forward to seeing him in anything that doesn't involve talking rodents in it.

Damn Jason! You got a little bit more grey going on than I do, but still looking good and healthy!

AMC

I'm almost willing to bet it will be on AMC. Kevin Smith has 2 shows on there already. Though if he wants the freedom and wants it uncensored, more than likely it will be on Netflix.

I like the Netflix approach. I REALLY think the series should be on HBO or Showtime, but I'm pretty sure that neither is willing to take on the risk vs. reward.
