The director of legendary horror thrillers "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs" is back!
It's true. M. Night Shyamalan has announced that his latest movie, The Visit, which will star Kathryn Hahn and Ed Oxenbould, will be released by Universal Pictures later this year.
Shyamalan's earlier work defined the horror genre's output during the late nineteen-nineties, early two-thousands.
The Sixth Sense, starring Bruce Willis, told the story of 8-year-old Cole Sear, played by Haley Joel Osment, who is haunted by a dark secret: he is visited by ghosts. Yes, he's is the man responsible for the infamous "I see dead people" quote!
Shyamalan, who was born in India but raised in Philadelphia, then followed that up with the equally excellent Unbreakable (2000) and later films Signs (2002) and The Village (2004).
Thankfully, it seems Shyamalan is back for good. Posting on Twitter, he revealed he was already working on his next project. He said,
The full details are still under wraps but, according to the film's wikipedia page, The Visit tells the story of a single-parent mother who finds that her family's lives go awry after her two young children visit their grandparents.
Shyamalan has said that the film,
“focuses on the brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a week long trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day.”
The Visit arrives in cinemas September 11, 2015
