You may have seen this slice of news over the weekend, but it still seems worthy of discussion. Kevin Smith
’s planned sequel to Mallrats
is no longer destined for cinemas. Instead, it’ll be a ten episode TV series.
“We started reconfiguring the idea of doing Mallrats
not as a film but as a series, and Universal and I are just about to close our deal to do Mallrats
the series,” Smith revealed during an interview on Philadelphia’s Wmmr radio station.
He added: “Then we take it out into the world and find a home for it. So, instead of doing a Mallrats
movie, I’m going to do 10 episodes of a Mallrats
Smith headed to Twitter shortly afterwards to confirm the news, and also hinted that his directorial gig on The Flash
season 2 played a part in this reconfiguration of Mallrats
Thanks to @CW_TheFlash, I've started setting up shop in scripted TV! First up: #BuckarooBanzai. Next up, #Mallrats

Apparently, Philadelphia’s Exton Square Mall is the planned location for the series’ shoot. First, though, Smith and Universal must find a network to sign up as the broadcaster.
2 movie script was previously going by the title Mallbrats
. We’ll have to wait and see if that’s still the title when the project reaches our telly screens.
In other Kevin Smith
news, the writer-director has also expressed an interest in directing either Daredevil
or The Defenders for Marvel Studios
We’ll keep you posted as Smith’s manifold projects continue to develop.
