The first clip from Devil has crept online and hopefully it will be enough to make you look past that nasty produced by Shyamalan credit that Universal keeps touting. For our money just being directed by the Dowdle brothers who brought us the better than average Quarantine is enough to sell it.
Along with Shyamalan, Devil is being produced by Sam Mercer. It was the first pic in a deal between Shyamalan and Media Rights Capital to create Night Chronicles, a banner that will hatch one genre film per year for the next three years.
Chris Messina, Logan Marshall-Green, Jenny O’Hara, Jacob Vargas, Matt Craven, Bojana Novakovic, Bokeem Woodbine, Geoffrey Arend, and Caroline Dhavernas star in the flick.
Even with its release date approaching, the only thing that we know about the plot as it’s heavily under wraps is that Messina plays the lead role of Bowden, a sobered-up homicide detective, and it’s a “supernatural thriller” set in an elevator.
Directed by John Erick and Drew Dowdle, the flick is arriving in theatres in a few short weeks on September 17th.
