M Night Shyamalan and Media Rights Capital, who formed the partnership Night Chronicles to finance and produce three genre films over the next three years, have announced details of their first movie.
Titled Devil, it is a supernatural thriller and will be written by Brian Nelson (30 Days Of Night) based on an original Shyamalan story, with Quarantine director, John Erick Dowdle, directing and producing. It is slated to begin production next year.
For this project, and the subsequent two movies, Shyamalan will create the stories and will oversea the casting and hiring of directors, as well as acting as producer. He won’t though, to the relief of anyone who has seen The Happening, be directing himself, or writing the scipt either.
