Shyamalan brings in Buried writer for the next Night Chronicles

06.23.2010

M. Night Shyamalan is on the precipice of a potential comeback, with THE LAST AIRBENDER set to bend the elements on the big Independence Day weekend. And besides trying to gather people like Bruce Willis for a new movie, he's preparing to have his name on more projects.

Well, part of his name -- the "Night Chronicles", a series of Shyamalan-produced low-budget genre films based on his own ideas, is already getting the second Chronicle going.

Shyamalan has put writer Chris Sparling to work on TWELVE STRANGERS, a "thriller that involves a jury deliberating a case involving the supernatural." Sparling penned the festival fave BURIED, which stars Ryan Reynolds as a guy stuck in a coffin somewhere in the Iraqi desert.

The first Night Chronicles entry, DEVIL, is apparently about a group of people trapped in an elevator with the dark lord himself. That one comes from the Brothers Dowdle (QUARANTINE) and is due in February.

Extra Tidbit: Sparling also wrote a thriller called ATM, which is apparently about a money-dispensing device and not what I wish it was about.

This is kinda what we've all suggested at one point or another.

"Shyamalan needs to have someone else write his movies". It's interesting to see him follow the Luc Besson route.

Twelve Strangers sounds "blah", but Devil sounds like something out of a Stephen King book. I can't wait!

I like to give the chance

I liked almost all of his films. I think people just listen to each other too much and feel like they have to agree with each other, like its a fad to dislike The Village.
I am looking forward to all of these ideas :)

He should do a movie...

with NO twist at all. That's the twist.
A completely straight story with a logical conclusion, that leaves people scratching their heads trying to figure out the surprise.

I dig all his flicks

Some were mucho better than others, but I've gotten a kick out of all of them. I would like to see a twist something more in the vein of Signs and 6th Sense again.

This could go either way, but I'm remaining optimistic.
