Kevin Smith talks future films including Clerks III and possibly Mallrats 2

Update: Kevin Smith took to Rock 102 Mornings with Shmonty & Carolina earlier today to actually CONFIRM that MALLRATS 2 is on the docket. You can check out the whole interview here, but in his own words, he states, "Yeah, that's what we're working on. It's half a script right now and we're pulling our loot together. By the time we get to May 2016 we're gonna be shooting." And there ya have it! Like it or not, it's definitely on his plate, although no word on story or casting yet. You can read the original article on the matter below.

While writer/director Kevin Smith's passion for making movies seemed to be dwindling a few years ago, TUSK renewed that passion and now the man is busier than ever. His follow-up to the True North Trilogy, YOGA HOSERS, is already in the can but that's just the tip of the iceberg. Within the next year, there's no less than 3 projects he's working on including a possible sequel further down the road. Take in what he's announced on his personal Facebook page below.

Kevin Smith on upcoming film projects:

Saw some websites are reporting CLERKS III will be my last flick. I did say this at one point, but Tusk changed all that. Now, the next 2 years are booked. We shoot CLERKS III in May. The HIT SOMEBODY hockey miniseries finally follows in the fall, shooting September to Christmas 2015. Then in Feb/March 2016, we tackle MOOSE JAWS and ANTI-CLAUS. And after that? I smell a rat...

CLERKS III and MOOSE JAWS are no surprise, and we've been waiting quite a while for HIT SOMEBODY to arrive in some form or fashion, but the final comment intrigues. One can't help but conjure up images of a MALLRATS 2. MALLRATS was hardly a critical or financial success, but over the years it has become a cult classic of sorts. If this means that Smith will be writing material for Jason Lee to say, then I'm totally down. Lee delivers Smith dialogue like no other!

Kevin Smith's next film, YOGA HOSERS, will see a release on June 1, 2015.

Clerks 3 sounds great, but give me Mallrats 2! Especially these days with malls going out of business and such, a great, very funny story could be build around the older guys being the only ones still hanging at a mall that has store by store going out of business. Maybe even Ben Affleck can come back in a small role as the big bad businessman buying it out or something. Then he tries to steal the girl, and Jason Lee offers him some chocolate covered pretzels....

JASON LEE!

As long as the sequel is as irreverent as the first, and doesn't try do what Clerks does as far as sort of the underlying pathos of aging, etc.

Oh look, a recently failed filmmaker is pulling out his long ago fan favorites and is now preparing sequels to them. Nothing desperate about this at all.

What's even more sad is that Smith already pulled out the "desperate career nostalgia" card with CLERKS 2.

And "recently failed" is being pretty generous.

Jesus. Yeah, and that was a big success was it? Smith has been failing for quite a long time. Had nothing to do with how recently he released a film. Dumbass.

She is he announcing Jersey Girl 2? Smith writes snappy dialogue but a storyteller he ain't.

I would like this news better if Kevin Smith had

improved his cinematic technique. I gave up on him after watching RED STATE - a movie I absolute loathed.

I know Kevin Smith is the guardian angel of all fanboys who want to make it in Hollywood, but his movies have been in steady decline since 2008's ZACK AND MIRI MAKE A PORNO. Even the Weinsteins, who gave him his big break, have essentially given up on him.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Mallrats II: Mallrats in Space is the perfect metaphor for Kevin Smith's entire career. Why not go back to the (very, very shallow) well after you've proven you have absolutely nothing else to offer? Anyone with half a brain knew his retirement shtick was just another PR stunt aimed at generating any kind of interest in his movies and massaging his massive ego.

Not sure about Mallrats 2...

What are they gonna do? Hang out at the mall again? people don't really do that anymore like they did in the 90s, malls are like wastelands except around christmas. More importantly, Kevin Smith is not Ronald McDonald, change your damn shirt dude

His last 2 movies have been unlike any other movie ever made before them... and in a world of remakes/reboots that is very welcome! The continuation of the Clerks universe is always welcome. . And if smelling a rat means a new Mallrats, then.. fuck yes!
