As we’ve reported, M. Night Shyamalan’s next movie, staring Will and Jaden Smith, is currently filming in Costa Rica, but is expected to move to the Philadelphia area later this month.

After Earth is set 1,000 years into the future and follows a young boy who navigates an abandoned Earth to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes.

According to NBC Philadelphia, the Budd Manufacturing Facility at 2450 W. Hunting Park Avenue in North Philly has been confirmed as one of the locations they’ll be using during the Philadelphia potion of filming.
