Erstes Mallrats 2-Skript war Die Hard-Hommage in einer Mall

Kevin Smith hat über den kommenden Film “Twilight of the Mallrats” im Movies That Changed My Life-Podcast von IMDB gesprochen. Demnach hieß der erste Entwurf noch “Mallrats 2: Die Hard in a Mall”. Kanadische Terroristen nahmen dort eine Mall ein, was die Protagonisten in eine ähnliches Situation wie in Die Hard gebracht hätte. Doch dieser Story-Pitch wurde dann hauptsächlich für Jay & Silent Bob-Reboot verwendet.

“There was one I wrote years ago that was called Mallrats 2: Die Hard in a Mall. Most of that wound up becoming Jay & Silent Bob Reboot. The whole third act of Jay & Silent Bob Reboot was the whole third act of Mallrats 2. They took over the mall instead of Chronic Con, and in Jay & Silent Bob Reboot they were Russian terrorists but in Mallrats 2 they were Canadian terrorists taking over the mall, and Brody was forced into this John McClane type position.”
