Finally some word on that top secret M. Night Shyamalan project, which is being pegged at the director’s first micro-budgeted feature.
TheWrap scored first casting news, revealing that Shyamalan’s Sundowning stars Tomorrowland‘s Kathryn Hahn, pictured, and rising child actor Ed Oxenbould.
In some very early, but vague plot details, Hahn plays a single mother whose two young children visit their grandparents… and things go very wrong. Oxenbould plays her son, who is protective of his sister.
Doing some research, “sundowning” is described as a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia. Symptoms also include agitation and mood swings.
Shyamalan is producing with Marc Bienstock and Ashwin Rajan, while Steven Schneider of Room 101 is executive producing. Production has nearly wrapped in Shyamalan’s home base of Pennsylvania.
