Someone remind Kevin Smith he said he was retiring (and then kill him)

My only wish is that TBS becomes the "Roadhouse" channel... then the circle will be complete

Suggesting that the only infestation he’s dealing with is the unnecessary franchise bug, Kevin Smith has confirmed that his recent comment, “I smell a rat,” was a not especially subtle reference to a Mallrats sequel, the scent of which Smith can already pick up from here. “It’s half scripted right now,” Smith recently told Tucson’s Rock 102 KFMA, so this Kevin Smith movie would seem totally ready to shoot. But it turns out Smith still needs to time for “pulling our loot together,” a process of financing and pillaging he believes will be done in time for a May 2016 start of production. He didn’t elaborate as to a plotline, or whether Mallrats 2 would feature a return from beloved 1990s stars like Shannen Doherty, Jeremy London, and shopping malls, although most have since fallen into disrepair.

What Smith did explain was that the idea for Mallrats 2 was born solely out of a desire to entertain himself, as opposed to every thing he’s ever done. “Lately I’ve been doing this thing where I’m like ‘Do you want to do what’s good for your career or do you just want to have fun?’” Smith said of this new experimental phase of total self-indulgence. “Nobody’s clamoring for a Mallrats sequel, but I would love to make one. It’s been like 20 years.”

Before you can expect Mallrats 2, of course, Smith still has Clerks III, the Johnny Depp-starring Yoga Hosers, Anti-Claus, and other things that no one was technically clamoring for, but will nevertheless be a lot of fun for Kevin Smith.
He overstayed his welcome a few movies ago. I thought he was retiring from film making. Hell, he made such a big deal out of it when he couldn't get a proper distributor for "Red State" (4 years ago), I assumed it was a done deal. Seriously, what the fuck? You can't tell us your weed habit has you this hard up for money.

They should make Chasing Amy 2, and he gets Amy. They could call it Chasing Amy 2: Catching Amy.

Wait, no...that's a fucking terrible idea.

Everywhere I turn now, there's Kevin Smith... wearing his custom 17X hockey jersey that says he's fat on it and making jokes about how fat he is. This is like Billy Corgan with the Zero shirt all over again. When you start becoming a Charlie Brown character, it's time to re-evaluate your worth to the world.

This dude is on Talking Dead, Comicbook Men, he's doing stand-up, blah-blah-blah and I mean DAMN, it's like he just shows up for a few minutes, makes a fat joke about himself and then gets paid. It's not like he even puts in any work (not that he has in years, imagine memorizing lines for your role as SILENT FUCKING BOB)

Oh yeah and he always throws in a Jersey Girl joke. I'm sure Smith is like "ok, I gotta poke fun at myself so that I can stay endeared to my audience so that I can be lazy with my next project and get a free pass again".

I prefer to think of it as a 20 year time capsule of awful...

Yeah...Keri Russell playing an airhead kind of made it worth it. But not really.

Never before have the words "Not For Air" seemed so appropriate.

Soooooooooooo... ever since that Suicide Trailer premiered there has been like 700 different stories popping up about Kevin Smith's 16 year old daughter.

Why?

Well, 2 reasons probably.

#1 - Smith needs the attention and he's probably trying a Will Smith move.
#2 - He named his daughter HARLEY QUINN

Neither of those reasons are acceptable to me.




and why does she look like Iggy Azalea?

Naming your kid Harley Quinn joins flip phones and Limp Bizkit on the "Stupid Things That Seemed Cool in the Year 2000" list.

Well in his defence, she wasn't that big of a character yet, and he worked for DC.


that Clerks pilot is almost as bad as the cartoon where Jay and Silent Bob weren't allowed to be stoners.

A failure in the sense that ABC screwed him over and it only ran for 2 weeks before ABC pulled the plug, but in terms of quality you'll need to provide a source because I don't believe he ever said it wasn't a good show.
