Development[edit]

In January 2009 Sony expressed an interest in making a sequel to Paul Blart: Mall Cop.[10] It was revealed on January 7, 2014 that Andy Fickman was in talks to direct the film[11] while Kevin James, who also co-wrote the script with Nick Bakay, would be back to star as Blart. James would also be producing the film along with Todd Garner and Happy Madison's Adam Sandler.[1] The cast includes Molly Shannon,[2] David Henrie,[5] Raini Rodriguez, Eduardo Verástegui, Nicholas Turturro, Gary Valentine,[6] Neal McDonough,[3] Daniella Alonso,[4] and D. B. Woodside to star along with James.[8]

On March 14, the Nevada Film Office announced that Sony Pictures had been awarded the first certificate of eligibility for the tax credit for the filming of Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2.[12] Nevada Film Office Director, Eric Preiss, indicated that the production would get $4.3 million in tax credits based on the proposal in their application.[13] On April 2, Columbia Pictures announced that the film would be released on April 17, 2015.[14]

Filming[edit]

In an interview in October 2012 James said that he liked the idea of filming the sequel at the Mall of America.[15] Principal photography of the film commenced on April 21, 2014, at Wynn Las Vegas, and ended on June 26, 2014.[16][17][18] It is the first time that Steve Wynn has allowed a commercial film to be shot at his property.[19]
