Find someone who loves you as much as Universal Pictures loves making M. Night Shyamalan movies. The filmmaker is yet again returning with another feature film for the studio, and his latest isn’t even out yet.
As fans eagerly await the debut of Knock at the Cabin this February [watch the trailer here], Shyamalan is already busy with another new movie.
This new project will release in 2024 and marks the sixth movie between Universal and Shyamalan. They’ve released four already – The Visit, Split, Glass, and Old, and are awaiting the premiere of the aforementioned Knock at the Cabin. Altogether, the four released projects grossed $713M worldwide.
Since his significant return with The Visit, Shyamalan has found his groove by making these films and mostly self-funding. He’s also fresh off the cult favorite series Servant for Apple TV.
Shyamalan tweeted about the announcement, celebrating what will be his sixteenth film…
Had an idea.
Pitched it to @UniversalPics
Feeling incredibly grateful.
Inspired by all I work with.
Honored to tell you guys another story in 2024.
