'Mallrats' was Smith's second film (after 'Clerks') and was actually filmed at a mall in Eden Prairie, Minnesota (where my dad worked at the time) 20 years ago. The film starred Jason Lee, Shannon Doherty, Michael Rooker, and even had a special appearance from Stan Lee.

Smith confirmed this in a recent interview and said the film is about half scripted right now. The 1995 film didn't do too well, but recieved lots of buzz from DVD sales and basically became a cult classic. It's also one of my favorite films and I'm a huge Kevin Smith fan, so I'm definitely excited for this one. No word on if the sequel will also be filmed in Minnesota though.

Check out the trailer for the original film below and let me know in the comments what you think about a sequel 20 years later.
