Kevin Smith's Mallrats sequel will be called MallBrats

It was announced back in March that Kevin Smith was set to start work on a sequel to Mallards (1995), along with heading back for a third helping of Clerks (1994). Smith confirmed recently via Instagram that he has completed at least the first draft of the Mallrats sequel, and that the film is currently called MallBrats.

Mallrats was Smith's much maligned Clerks follow-up that attempted to transplant the blend of slacker vibe, pop cultural commentary and sheer madness to a mall with a bigger budget, a bolstered cast (including one Ben Affleck) and colour.

Now the sequel is coming together and Smith has already been teasing that many of the original cast members have agreed to come back, including Jason Lee, Jeremy London, Ethan Suplee, Shannen Doherty, Michael Rooker, Renée Humphrey, Joey Lauren Adams, Sven-Ole Thorsen, Scott Mosier, Bryan Johnson, Walt Flanagan, Brian O'Halloran, Claire Forlani and Stan Lee, who cameoed as himself in an era before we all got used to seeing him every year in the Marvel movies. No word on Affleck yet, but given how his character ended up in the original, there is every chance Shannon Hamilton is still in prison...
