M. Night Shyamalan
Some interesting developments regarding M. Night Shayamalan's forthcoming project The Night Chronicles: Devil. Universal has decided to tweak the title a bit to something less ... attributed to.
M. Night Shyamalan movies are a mixed bag. They've ranged from good (The Sixth Sense) to decent (Signs) to downright awful (The Happening), but we're still rooting for the guy.
It's been a few months since last we heard anything about John Erick and Drew Dowdle's (Quarantine, The Poughkeepsie Tapes) latest horror-thriller based on an M. Night Shyamalan story entitled Devil, but finally there's a bit of progress to report.
Last week casting news starting coming in on the upcoming project Devil, which is being helmed by John Dowdle (Quarantine). And now we have some details on just who is going to be bringing the Devil to life.
Brothers John Erick and Drew Dowdle, whose [REC] redux Quarantine was awarded a Grimmy for Best Zombie Film during last Tuesday evening's Reaper Awards, are about to embark on their next project, a horror-thriller based on an M. Night Shyamalan story entitled Devil.
Seeing as how the John Dowdle directed Quarantine (review) and M. Night Shyamalan's tale of deadly trees both failed to impress many of us, there's a good chance that combining the power of both filmmakers may produce something semi-quasi-somewhat amusing. Well, we're hoping, at least.
M. Night Shyamalan appears to have no intention of moving away from our genre at all. I guess that's good news for his fans who were not bummed out by The Village, Signs, or even the big windbag known as The Happening (review).
M. Night Shyamalan isn’t fully stepping out from behind his ego yet, but this is a step in the right direction. Variety announced this morning that the man who made The Happening and has yet to apologize for it has inked a deal with Media Capitol Rights to produce a thriller per year under a banner known as The Night Chronicles.
