Mallrats Sequel Becomes A TV News

Last year came word from filmmaker Kevin Smith about the returning cast members for the “Mallrats” sequel with practically everyone but Ben Affleck confirmed to return.

Things have been quiet ever since, but now there seems to be good reason. The Preston & Steven talk show is reporting that the sequel has ditched film plans in favor of a ten-episode TV series.

Smith’s original plan for the film had Brodie (Jason Lee) trying to save the mall with a comic convention, only to have terrorists break in and wreak havoc. No word on when we might see it as things aren’t signed at this point, Smith saying only they are “now nearing agreement,” but he does plan to shoot at Exton Square Mall if it goes forward.
