M. Night Shyamalan

Briefly: Shyamalan's new thriller has a date for early 2017. Over at The Wrap, they report that Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have set a release for M. Night Shyamalan's Split on January 20th, 2017. Split is written and directed by Shyamalan, following up his return to low budget films The Visit this year, and is supposedly a "suspense thriller with elements of the supernatural". Other than that, there's no plot info available. The cast includes James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula and Haley Lu Richardson. There's already a lot of other weird horror scheduled for January 2017 between the delayed Friday the 13th reboot, Resident Evil: The Final Chapter, plus Power Rangers and The Dark Tower movie. I'm curious what exactly Shyamalan's Split means - maybe split personality? McAvoy would be a great pick.

      It's his best movie since Signs. A real treat for people who like his style of filmmaking.

    I am glad he is staying small budget, whether he wants to or not.
    • Bounty 4 Zuckuss
      He does better with small casts and lower budgets. He'll be fine if he stays in his element
  • Adam
    Still one of my favorite film makers. I'm super excited he's staying small budget.

    Hmm... Haven't seen a good Shyamalamadingdong movie in a while. I'm surprised to see The Visit got decent reviews on RT. What a twist! Might check this out mebbe... or not.

    The Visit made 89 mil worldwide on a 5 mil budget. Pretty good I'd say.
  • The visit was okay, like a tv movie level good or something.
