M. Night Shyamalan Does a Split in January 2017

We’ve been talking about M. Night Shyamalan’s latest supernatural thriller for a while now, even though it didn’t have a title, a plot, or a release date. Today we have 2 of the 3.

According to The Wrap, the film is entitled Split and will be hitting theatres on January 20, 2017. Plot details are still under wraps.

James McAvoy, Anya Taylor Joy, Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula, and Haley Lu Richardson star. Given Jason Blum’s involvement, the movie’s budget will be relatively small, which would be more on par with Shyamalan’s The Visit, which overperformed at the box office, bringing in $83.1 million worldwide.

Marc Bienstock will also produce, while Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider are on board as exec producers. Production is expected to start this November in Philadelphia. The film is not currently set up at a studio.
