A representative for the owners of the mall, PREIT, confirmed the news:
PREIT is excited at the opportunity for one of our Philly area malls to be the setting for this movie.  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 & onsite events to celebrate the partnership.
Kevin Smith was rumored to film at Granite Mall earlier this year after the director visited the location in July. Throughout August, news surrounding Mallrats 2 were scarce until today. Now it looks as though Philadelphia will have another big movie to add to their growing library of films.
