“Mallrats 2″ Is Now Being Developed as a TV Series
(via Deadline/WWMR 93.3 Philadelphia)
Come to think of it, plenty of long-awaited sequels might have fared better as a TV series.
It’s been 21 years since Kevin Smith released Mallrats. In that time, it has become a cult hit that propelled Smith’s career. Making a sequel has proven tough though, which is why Smith has opted to now developed Mallrats 2 into a 10 episode TV series.
Given that there’s a whole cinematic universe of Kevin Smith movies, a TV series will give what might have been an overstuffed Mallrats sequel the room to do as much as it wants to and play in said Kevin Smith-verse.
