Did Kevin Smith Just Hint at “Mallrats 2”?

With his announcement last night that “Clerks III” will begin shooting in May, Kevin Smith laid out a production schedule that includes the hockey miniseries “Hit Somebody” and the horror comedy “Moose Jaws,” while hinting at a possible return to one of his earliest films.

Naturally, he could be messing with fans, but “I smell a rat” certainly suggests “Mallrats,” the 1995 romantic comedy that launched the acting career of Jason Lee, who, along with co-star Ben Affleck, went on to appear in numerous Smith movies.

The filmmaker’s follow-up to “Clerks,” “Mallrats” was a commercial bomb upon its theatrical release, but it’s developed a cult following in the nearly two decades since. Although Smith has been on a tear the past few years, with “Red State,” “Tusk,” “Yoga Hosers” and now “Clerks III,” another “Mallrats” feature would seem unlikely.

However, as Uproxx points out, he could be teasing a digital short, webseries or even a comic book, rather than a movie.
