M. Night Shyamalan is back in a big way, well, actually, a small way.
Going from mega summer blockbusters to low budget indies, Shyamalan will see the release of his The Visit through Universal September 11, 2015
And even though that movie doesn’t release until later in the year, the director behind The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and The Village is already halfway through his next Supernatural thriller.
“So odd writing a film before the previous one hasn’t come out,” he tweeted. “#TheVisit comes out in Sept, and I’m 75pgs into a new small scary thriller.
“It’s so scary to write,” he added, “To sit down and try to hear characters. With all the insecurities of your life screaming louder than them at first.”
He also talks a bit about The Visit, which “focuses on a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a week long trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day.”
“I keep thinking about the comedy in #TheVisit,” he continues. “Will people dig it? Should I put more or less in this one? Already I’m screwed.”
In addition to Kathryn Hahn and Ed Oxenbould, The Visit also stars Erica Lynne Marszalek, Peter McRobbie, Olivia DeJonge, Deanna Dunagan, Benjamin Kanes, Jon Douglas Rainey, Brian Gildea, Shawn Gonzalez, Richard Barlow, Steve Annan, and Michael Mariano.
