Director Kevin Smith attempted for years to get a Mallrats sequel off the ground, but may finally have succeeded with a TV approach. Before any formal pickup, however, Smith reveals Jason Mewes’ Flash-y inspiration to revamp the sequel, as well its “multi-generational” plot for Brodie and his daughter.
At least one of Kevin Smith’s upcoming TV projects appears to be getting off the ground, while a Mallrats adaptation seems to be inching forward as well. Smith updated on the project from Comic-Con 2016, rattling of a list of potential homes for the “multigenerational” sequel, as well whether “Batfleck” could take part.
Just when you thought Kevin Smith’s burgeoning TV career with the likes of The Flash or Buckaroo Banzai would put a few long-dormant film projects to rest, Mallrats is ready to offer another chocolate-covered pretzel. The director reveals that in lieu of a proposed sequel, he and Universal are closing a deal to revive Mallrats as a new 10-episode TV series.
