Less than a week after confirming "Mallrats 2," Kevin Smith has released a photo that reunites him with Stan Lee, Michael Rooker and Jason Mewes ... on the set of an Audi commercial.
"We goin' back to the MALL, ya'll! Stan Lee, Jay and Silent Bob and Michael Rooker are making a number 2," the filmmaker teases. "Talking about in this picture, not the movie. I'm aiming for the movie to be good. (This pic was taken yesterday, as all four of us gathered to shoot a really adorable Stan-centric spot for Audi that you'll see online as we get closer to the release of Marvel's 'Avengers: Age of Ultron.')
It's a safe bet that Mewes and Smith will reprise their roles as Jay and Silent Bob in the sequel, but whether Lee and Rooker will join them remains to be seen (Smith has suggested he'll lure back the "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Walking Dead" actor with chocolate-covered pretzels).
"Mallrats 2" is targeted to begin production next spring. Marvel's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" opens May 1.
