To recap, Kevin Smith had a whole series of movies lined up for the next couple of years, and then he floated the idea of revisiting his second film, Mallrats, in a sequel. He did it via Twitter, so naturally everyone took the tease as gospel and ran with it past Excitedville all the way to Hype City. Maybe it’s our relentless obsession with nostalgia, or maybe it’s the stars aligning on the 20th anniversary of the original film, but Smith just couldn’t stop talking about Mallrats 2. The latest development: we will no longer have to wait two years for it! In a new post, Smith conformed that Mallrats 2 will be his next project. (more…)
AOL News reports, Jeremy London, Former Party of Fiver and of Kevin Smith’s Mallrats notoriety, is heading to rehab. Not our usual forte here to report on, but I’m giving the consideration based on Kevin Smith’s street cred and London’s enigmatic “Mad Phat Chick Killer” TS Quint. Not only because he’s named after Quint from Jaws but also one of the only non returning cast members to any of Smith’s later films.
Doubting it will do any good, Mr. London has been inserted as top talent on upcoming new season of Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab. Which, good God I hate to say it, won’t do shit if he’s “Acting” his recovery. And, seeings that he claims he was held by a group of men at gunpoint and forced to go on a 12-hour meth and ectasy binge, I’d say they have their work cut out for them..
If he plays by the rules, as long as they’re not holding a gun on him, I say London can make this work.
