Night's Green Planet?

Jan. 24, 2007by: Omar Aviles

M. Night Shyamalan Teddy from over at M. Night Fans recently alerted us to some news he'd picked up from TMZ and Latino Review that M. Night Shamaglock recently sent out an original screenplay titled GREEN PLANET to several studios and so far, has been given a big ass pass by every one. Fox is apparently the only studio slightly interested in the film, which is rumored to be an alien invasion epic in which the extraterrestrial visitors use the world's flora and fauna to subdue humanity, but they're demanding extensive rewrites. On hearing this, Night flashed back to his Disney LADY IN THE WATER nightmare, collapsed wailing into his pillow, immediately got out his diary and wrote "Why don't they understand, diary? Did they ask Michaelangelo to repaint the Sistine Chapel? Did they ask Einstein to rewrite relativity? No! Why, diary?!? Why?!? Sometimes I think you're the only one who'll ever truly understand me, diary." It's hard out there for a fragile multimillionaire director. Of course, at this point we should probably consider this a rumor until we get more official confirmation.

Extra Tidbit: Night's real name is Manoj Nelliyattu Shyamalan.

Oh thank God. I thought he was going to remake the Korean Save The Green Planet for a second there. Now I can just go back to not caring what he does.

As long as there is no narfs, skrunks, or....uh... goochs I guess I'll give Shymalan ONE more chance.

I guess Al Gore will not be endorsing this movie since it seems very "anti-environment"...Maybe the message will be to build more Wal-Marts and Costcos so that the plants can't rise up!

Dude, Omar, why are you wailing on Shymalan? He hasn't made any bad movies. Sure, The Village had a bad ending, and Lady in the Water, while being far from bad, was not what was expected.... So I don't see the point in acting like your so above him and his original ideas.

I'm hip to anything Shymalan decides to put out.

Oh... I see

When I saw the title I was thinking, "Oh, M. Night is gonna adapt the book The Green Planet which is about E.T.? That sounds like a terrible idea". But that's not the case at all... it's about evil foliage and instead seems like Maixmum Overdrive but with an enviromentalist twist to it. Exciting?

"theotherness", you are so frickin' right on the money. Why has it become the 'in' thing to talk sh*t about M. Night.

Some of you guys are just as bad as Hollywood execs. Their way of thinking is "you are only as good as your last film".

We know M. Night is capable of great things. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt. If the movie doesn't pan out, that's too bad. But if you want to complain about a film, pick a formulaic remake or romantic comedy.

I loved 'Lady in the Water,' 'The Village,' 'Signs,' 'Unbreakable,' and of course that other big one. I'm not a picky fan AT ALL.

That said, this script sounds like it'll be awesome, and *that* said, all those major studios don't know what they're missing out on.

What a neat-sounding idea...our own world, which we are destroying more and more each year, being used as a weapon against us? NICE! I'm always pro-"Nature Kicks Mankind's Ass" when it comes to plots.

And please...no

And please...no AVATAR, Night. You're better than subscribing to someone else's ideas. Stick to your own. You're awesome like that.

GO NIGHT, GO!

Guys, don't be so quick to try and water down an original filmmaker like Shyamalan. He will have occasional projects that don't meet with wide reception, because he (so far) sticks to his original vision when he wants to tell a story. All the greats (not just in the film industry) go through those times. I hope he sticks to his guns.

HMMM

Hilarious comment, Groundless.

I don't know. Could be good. Could be bad. I am glad to see the studios are being so tough on him, actually. It will help keep the man in check and force him to write a script that is actually halfway decent.

He's an amazing director, but not so swift a writer, so I think the studios probably should force him to extensive rewrites on his projects before they go into production.

Now this is Night! No Avatar anime stuff. Aliens! Suspense! What a twist!

I hope by "subdue humanity" he means Little Shop Of Horrors style. There's nothing better than a plant holding you at gunpoint telling you to eat more so you can crap more and fertilize him.

And then we'll win the war against grass and trees by building really tall log cabins that block out the sun. What a twist!

And humans will smoke weed and have like plant concentration camps out on glaciers. And then
