Back in April, we reported that it was possible that Kevin Smith was looking at the Granite Run Mall in the Philadelphia suburb of Media as a possible shooting location for Mallrats 2, later renamed Mallbrats. A week or so later, Philly.com managed to confirm that the director gad talks with the Mall management about shooting there. Today, Smith himself confirmed it with a Facebook post showcasing himself, and daughter Harley, at the Mall.
We should urge a note of caution though, as Smith does use the conditional “might.” According to its website, the Granite Run Mall is closed and previous reportage had it that the Mall’s owners were looking to get the wrecking ball swinging on the structure this fall. Is a deal being negotiated right now? We have a call in to mall management and will update if we receive any word.
