Shyamalan thriller to be released by FOX

7 03 2007

20th Century Fox has picked up M. Night Shyamalan’s spec script for The Happening, a paranoid thriller he wrote and will direct in Philadelphia this August. Shyamalan will also produce with Sam Mercer and Barry Mendel, who produced Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. The movie is slated for an August 2008 release and will be the director’s first R-rated project. The story is about a family on the run from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity. The budget is estimated at about $57 million, and Shyamalan says he plans to cast a big male star for the lead. (Variety)

can’t wait!, hope this will be his comeback movie, although i didn’t think that “the village” and “lady in the water” was such horrible movie as many might thought.
