Earlier this week, it was reported that M. Night Shyamalan is shopping his next screenplay around Hollywood, trying to find someone to produce his next directorial effort. At the time we knew very little about the project, as that’s the way Shyamalan likes it. Apparently only a few studio execs have read the script, and in every case, Shyamalan’s assistant was in the room to supervise.We dont even have a title, only that the cast will include The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable star Bruce Willis, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bradley Cooper.
We now have a few new details about the project… Well, actually… Russ slipped this update in with the report about the M Night-produced Twelve Strangers, but I thought the bit was big enough for its own story (as some of you might have glossed over the previous story). So if you missed it, hit the jump for more info on Night’s new project.
Deadline is reporting that the film has a plot reminiscent of Taken, but with supernatural powers.
Bradley Cooper would play a father on a desperate search for his missing child. It might stray into Taken terrain, but the father taps into some supernatural powers to aid the search.
It’s definitely not the Unbreakable sequel that some people had speculated it might be. Universal is said to be interested. The script remains untitled.
