The sequel to “Mallrats”, titled “MallBrats”, will be filmed at Exton Square Mall in Exton, Pa, beginning in January.
Director Kevin Smith announced the big news Thursday morning via his Twitter account, saying “We found our MALL, ya’ll!”
PREIT, the real estate investment trust that currently owns the mall property, says officials are excited by the filming.
"If all goes according to plan, filming will start at Exton Square in January. We are thrilled at the prospect of hosting Kevin Smith, the actors, and crew, helping to bring jobs to the area, and creating social media & on-site events to celebrate the partnership," they said in a statement.
Michael Markman, president of BET Investments, previously told The Delco Times that Smith was considering filming at Granite Run Mall, but it was “just a matter of timing.” But then, Philly.com reported that Smith would not likely be filming at that location.
Now, though, the Chester County-area will get its fill of Mallrats.
