    It's been a while since I read any of that, but wasn't that comic super dark and violent? I'm not sure what standards BBC America has to follow, but how much would even they be allowed to get away with?

    Kevin Smith seems to have tons of stuff in the works. How about he finishes one before starting more.

    I love shows like X-Files and Fringe. Hopefully, this can fill the void I've been missing.

    I know! Can't wait for this to get cancelled before it gets started as well!
    (Clerks 3, mallrats 2 or the series, Buckaroo bonzai)
    I have hope this will happen but I won't hold my breath.

    Thing about Kevin Smith is he tells you what he's got spinning before it's seriously happening. Save Clerks 3, one of the main stars (IE Dante or Randal) dropped out, no joke, a month before principle photography was going to start.

    If I had to guess, I would say it was Jeff Anderson (Randall). He didn't want to do Clerks 2, either.


    Another problem with sequels to movies like Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, etc. is that Smith doesn't own the rights to those properties. He sold them a long time ago, so he doesn't have much control if something gets shit-canned. The only thing he still owns is the Jay and Silent Bob characters.

    If I was laying money it would be Jeff Anderson.

    He keeps saying that Mallrats could still happen once they find a network for it. Buckaroo Banzai wasn't his fault either, he can't control if MGM is suing the original creators.

    I'm not saying any of it is smiths fault. It just gets tiresome when you keep hearing new projects from him and they don't pan out.

    And did you miss this:
    It's Hollywood, until it has a hard release date nothing is for certain.
