Good news for Smith fans, as with her reportedly never being happy with her experience in shooting the original film it appeared that Forlani’s participation could have been a long shot. That leaves the only other long shot returnee from the original cast being the very busy Ben Affleck. No word on whom the other person Smith is hoping to get to return, but it pretty much looks like it is Priscilla Barnes, who played the three-nippled psychic, as Jason Lee, Jeremy London, Shannen Doherty, Michael Rooker, Ethan Suplee, Jason Mewes, Renee Humphrey, Joey Lauren Adams, Sven-Ole Thorsen, Stan Lee, Scott Mosier, Brian O’Halloran, Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson have already committed to reprising their roles.
Mallrats 2 is scheduled to shoot later this year in the Philadelphia area, and we think it will be here.
