As much as I want to, I’m not going to give you my Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 rant again. I’ve done it several times before and by this point, I’ve just accepted the fact that the film is indeed happening and that on April 17th, 2015, I’ll be left with no choice but to shut my eyes and look away from the complete train wreck that it will be.
The Andy Fickman-directed sequel is currently gearing up for production and today, it has added another member to its cast. D.B. Woodside, perhaps best known for his role as Wayne Palmer on 24, has signed on to star alongside Kevin James, Molly Shannon, Nicholas Turturro and Neal McDonough (who’s playing the main antagonist this time around, which is perhaps the one thing to look forward to here).
Plot-wise, Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2 will once again focus on its titular hero, who will have to foil an art heist while attending the Security Guard Expo in Las Vegas. For the five of you who enjoyed the first film, expect more of the same here, with dumb humor, lame sight gags and characterization that’s basically non-existent. For everyone else, stay far, far away.
As mentioned above, this second serving of Paul Blart: Mall Cop will arrive next April. If anyone at all is even remotely interested in seeing it, please leave a comment below and let us know why. We’d really, really like to know.
