Well, Kevin Smith’s TV credits had to be leading somewhere, if not a Mallrats or Buckaroo Banzai series. Now, the recent Supergirl director has in mind to develop Spawn creator Todd McFarlane’s Sam and Twitch for a TV adaptation at BBC-America; both directing and writing.
Director Kevin Smith attempted for years to get a Mallrats sequel off the ground, but may finally have succeeded with a TV approach. Before any formal pickup, however, Smith reveals Jason Mewes’ Flash-y inspiration to revamp the sequel, as well its “multi-generational” plot for Brodie and his daughter.
At least one of Kevin Smith’s upcoming TV projects appears to be getting off the ground, while a Mallrats adaptation seems to be inching forward as well. Smith updated on the project from Comic-Con 2016, rattling of a list of potential homes for the “multigenerational” sequel, as well whether “Batfleck” could take part.
Just when you thought Kevin Smith’s burgeoning TV career with the likes of The Flash or Buckaroo Banzai would put a few long-dormant film projects to rest, Mallrats is ready to offer another chocolate-covered pretzel. The director reveals that in lieu of a proposed sequel, he and Universal are closing a deal to revive Mallrats as a new 10-episode TV series.
One of the highlights of Geek'd Con for me, was the chance to talk to Jeremy London, the star of Kevin Smith's cult classic Mallrats. Mallrats is one of my favorite movies and I was pumped to talk to Jeremy about the original film and the up coming sequel...
As you very well know, I'm a HUGE nerd! And one of my favorite people in all of nerdom is Kevin Smith. Not only is a pretty damn good comic writer (I highly suggest checking out his Daredevil run), but he has created and directed some of my favorite movies and characters. So, in honor of the genius that is Kevin Smith, here are some of my favorite Jay and Silent Bob moments. Snoochie Boochies!
Personally, I think Kevin Smith is an absolute genius! He has crafted some of the most unique and irreverent films of the past 20 decades. Can you imagine a world without Clerks or Dogma? I think not. And one of the cool things Kevin does are these awesome Q&A sessions. Below are some of my favorite Kevin Smith nuggets...take it away Silent Bob!
We had the chance to talk to writer, director and actor Kevin Smith on the air during "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" today.
While Kevin is, perhaps, best known for his work on the "Clerks" movie series, he also has a million other things going on.
He called in to talk about his AMC series "Comic Book Men," which airs Sunday nights at midnight EST.
This morning we had Kevin Smith on the show. He did Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob, Dogma, Jersey Girl. He was also the fat guy that got kicked off the plane as he so puts in in the teaser. Anyways he has a dark movie coming out called Red State...
