Kevin Smith: MallBrats will be sequel to Mallrats
The Mallrats are back, and they’re bringing along some brats for their next film.
Kevin Smith revealed on Monday that the Mallrats sequel will actually be called MallBrats, rather than sticking a “2” after the original title or giving it a subtitle. Right now, the film’s script comes in at 113 pages.
In addition to the page count, Smith’s tweeted that the movie will be dedicated to James “Jim” Jacks’ memory. Jacks produced the original film, but died in 2014.
The title likely indicates a new crop of ‘rats that will be featured in the film—Smtih has stated on his Hollywood Babble-On podcast that he plans for 18 returning characters to appear along with six new ones.
Smith also pointed out that he (sort of) revealed the title almost a year ago, when he posted a picture of himself and his daughter with the word “MallBrat” in the caption.
Smith also has plenty of other projects on his plate, including Clerks III, Moose Jaws and Hit Somebody.
