Chocolate Covered Pretzel? This Bruce Campbell in 'Mallrats 2' Possibility Is Groovy AF
You might be saying "Mike, I can't read this stupid article right now. I'm trying to have my breakfast." To that I say: "Breakfast? Breakfast, shmreakfast. Look at the score, for Christ's sake. It's only in the middle of the second period and I'm running 12 to 2. Breakfasts come and go Rene, but Hartford, "the Whale," they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime!"
If you understood that reference you are going to be jacked to your third nipple when I tell you what I just read. Kevin Smith just announced recently on his Instagram that he's going to be making a sequel to 'Mallrats; this year. Which, is my personal favorite of the entire View Askew filmography and is awesome all by itself. However, there's more. MUCH MORE!
Bruce Campbell responded to the social media post asking "Can I play the Milk Man?" to which Kevin Smith responded:
"The role I have for you in Twilight of the Mallrats is the part you were *born* to play: (Bruce Campbell) himself! In a world where Brodie's biggest hero (Stan Lee) is gone (but never forgotten), he's gonna need all his *other* heroes. And Brodie loooooves Evil Dead 2 & Ash!"
Nothing is official obviously, but it certainly seems like Bruce and Kevin wanna see the goddamn sailboat. It just feels right. Total opposite of the backseat of a Volkswagen.
In the original 'Mallrats' Stan Lee's cameo was legendary. Brodie waxes philosophical on all things superhero genitals and the adorable Stan Lee gives him love advice. Imagine getting Bruce Campbell in that type of role PLUS the added horror referendum of the 'Evil Dead' franchise. Biggity bam!
Alright, I gotta go. That kid....that kid IS BACK ON THE ESCALATOR! Man, there's not a year that goes by--not a year--that I don't read about some escalator accident involving some bastard kid that could have easily been avoided had some parent--I don't care which one--but some parent conditioned him to fear and respect that escalator!
