Universal Pictures have released the first teaser trailer for Devil, which is being dubbed as coming “From The Mind of M Night Shyamalan.” The first released under “The Night Chronicles” banner, Devil is directed by Quarantine helmers the Dowdle Bros from a story by M. Night Shyamalan and script by Brian Nelson. The story reported involves a group of people who are trapped in an elevator, and one of them is the devil. We’ve also been told that the security guard is trying to convince the policeman to get them out of the elevator, and that he is the chosen one to save the people. The trailer uses the wording “One of these five people, is not, who they appear to be.” The film stars Chris Messina, Bojana Novakovic, Bokeem Woodbine, Geoffrey Arend and Caroline Dhavernas.

Which, I suspect, really means that there’s some info out there that we haven’t dug up yet.”
Look’s like we’ve now managed to dig a bit of it up, with a little help from our friends. Be wary of potential spoilers as you read on.

M Night Shyamalan is known for shooting his films close to home, in and around the Philadelphia area. Right now the director is even doing post production on his latest, The Last Airbender, in Philly. This morning I received an e-mail from a /Film reader named Bruce W who alerts me that Shyamalan is being forced to relocate his next film, Devil, to Toronto.
