I’ve all the time loved Ben Affleck’s villainous position in Mallrats. Coming a yr earlier than his breakout efficiency in Good Will Looking, he performs jock douchebag Shannon Hamilton who competes with T.S. for the guts of Brandi Svenning. It doesn’t finish effectively for Shannon, although, as he will get his comeuppance after a video of him having intercourse with a 15-year-old woman is unveiled and he’s promptly arrested for statutory rape.
Since Mallrats, Affleck and Smith famously had a falling out, although in recent times, they’ve rekindled their friendship. Now, Huge Ben is reprising the position (together with everybody else within the solid) for the upcoming Mallrats 2. However what occurred to Shannon? Certainly his life have to be ruined after the occasions of the primary film, proper? Nicely, not fairly. In an interview with THR, Smith was requested about Affleck’s return and mentioned:
“The factor that I’m most tickled about is how Shannon Hamilton (Ben Affleck) and his crime from again within the day figures into the present local weather. Shannon comes again as Senator Shannon Hamilton, and so his redemption arc begins earlier than our film even begins. His political redemption arc is fairly humorous.”

It’s slightly miserable however completely believable that somebody like Shannon Hamilton may transfer previous a criminal offense like that to achieve political energy. Nonetheless, his actions within the unique Mallrats are sure to return again to hang-out him. So whereas he might begin able of affect, I doubt he’ll finish issues that manner.
Mallrats 2 (which can find yourself being referred to as both Twilight of the Mallrats or Mallrats Too) is anticipated to start taking pictures early subsequent yr. It’ll be an fascinating challenge and appears to replicate on the adjustments in tradition since 1996, certainly one of them being that purchasing malls are shortly turning into out of date and deserted. We’ll additionally see how comedian nerd Brodie is coping with his area of interest ardour of superheroes rising to take over the world and his relationship along with his daughter (one thing that’ll possible be a mirrored image Smith’s personal experiences with fatherhood).
