film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Kevin Smith, Podcasts & The Power Of Fandom

There have been a lot of casting announcements recently following the news that Kevin Smith would be making a sequel to his second film; Mallrats 2.

We were also told that production had been brought forward to 2015, after filming on his other major project Clerks III.

However, Smith announced today that Mallrats 2 has been pushed forward to shoot before Clerks III due to the availability of a disused mall location he wants for the film which is soon to be demolished.




Kevin Patrick Smith (born August 2, 1970) is an American filmmaker, actor, comic book writer, author, and podcaster. He came to prominence with the low-budget comedy film Clerks (1994), which he wrote, directed, co-produced, and acted in as the character Silent Bob of stoner duo Jay and Silent Bob. Jay and Silent Bob have appeared in Smith’s follow-up films MallratsChasing AmyDogma, and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back which were set primarily in his home state of New Jersey. While not strictly sequential, the films frequently featured crossover plot elements, character references, and a shared canon described by fans as the “View Askewniverse“, named after his production company View Askew Productions, which he co-founded with Scott Mosier.

Smith also directed and produced films such as the buddy cop action comedy Cop Out (2010), the horror film Red State (2011), and the horror comedy Tusk (2014), the first film in the True North trilogy.

Smith is the owner of Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, a comic book store in Red Bank, New Jersey that is the subject of the reality-television show Comic Book Men. He also hosts the movie-review television show Spoilers. As a podcaster, Smith co-hosts several shows on his own SModcast Podcast Network, including SModcastFatman on Batman, and the live show Hollywood Babble-On. Smith is well known for participating in long, humorous Q&A sessions that are often filmed for DVDrelease, beginning with An Evening with Kevin Smith.
