Leguizamo w/ M. Night

Jul. 18, 2007by: Mike Sampson

John Leguizamo has signed on to co-star with Mark Wahlberg in the upcoming M. Night Shyamalan thriller THE HAPPENING. Not a feature adaptation of "What's Happening Now?," the Shyamalan film will feature Leguizamo as Wahlberg's best friend who joins him on the run after a series of natural disasters. That's the boring logline though. Really this film is the ultimate INCONVENIENT TRUTH and features a super pissed off Mother Nature who decides to fight back against humanity and gets people killing themselves and others. Also starring in the film are Zooey Deschanel and Spencer Breslin (Abigail's older brother and star of CAT IN THE HAT). I'm excited to see what Shyamalan's cooking up this time around as I'm a big fan of his work. I even liked LADY IN THE WATER so I guess that makes me a fan or certifiably insane (both?). Filming on HAPPENING will begin later this month in Philadelphia and Fox has already set a June 13, 2008 release.

M. Night!

I've like every one of M's movies. Each one was interesting on it's own and had something unique to offer. I especially thought the Village was great. Lady in the Water was pretty darn cool too. - G

I've lost faith in m. night. sixth sense, signs, and unbreakable were great, but lady in the water and village were horrible. i'm not sure.

Kinda like Day After Tomorrow with a The Village ending and a bit too much coincidence.

Shyamalan owns. Signs and Lady are both awesome, and The Happening sounds like it could be better than both. Mother Nature decides it's time to purge earth of humans? Hell yeah.

I'm not too fond of any of the cast though, but oh well.

Groundless said it best. I do like Wahlberg (he's tolerable in most movies) but Lequizamo makes me want to break a bowl of tortilla chips over my head every time I hear that damn accent.

Gotta Admit...

I didn't hate "Lady in the Water," but I didn't really like it either - it is, in my opinion, his most flawed film, but I can't really understand the wicked backlash that's happened. Say what you will, but "The Sixth Sense," and "Unbreakable" are pretty great films and if they announced that Willis was doing a sequel to "Unbreakable," I'd be psyched. Anyway. Night's got a nice cast here - Curious to see what he's got up his sleeve this time.

Marky Mark and The Pest. This seems like the lineup of a buddy comedy that would have been made in the late 90s. Who knew they would become respected actors only 10 years later...
