Seeing as I thoroughly enjoyed the very divisive Glass, and that I always find M. Night Shyamalan’s work interesting even if it doesn’t always come off, I’m happy to post the news that Universal Pictures has announced today that two new “original thrillers” that Shyamalan will write and direct are on the way, and though we don’t yet have titles or plots, we do have dates – February 26, 2021 and February 17, 2023.
Universal President Peter Cramer:
“M. Night Shyamalan continues to create exciting, highly original stories that keep global audiences on the edge of their seats. There is no one like him: he is a master filmmaker working at the height of his powers, and we are honored that he has once again chosen Universal to be the home for his next two incredible projects.”
“There are wonderful studios out there, but Universal has made it a mandate to release original films. They are the best at finding an audience for new stories with unexpected tones. I believe original films are crucial to the longevity of the theatrical experience. I am so excited to be working with them again and bringing new stories to the movie screen for years to come.”
