In 2024, Universal will release a new thriller from M. Night Shyamalan.
With the upcoming untitled movie scheduled for release on April 5, 2024, the 52-year-old director is maintaining his lucrative association with the company.
This follows his other projects with Universal, such as “The Visit” (2015), “Split” (2017), “Glass” (2019), “Old” (2021), and the upcoming “Knock at the Cabin” (2023), which will be released on February 3rd.
A group of bad guys led by Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird, and Abby Quinn holds Jonathan Groff and Ben Aldridge, as well as their daughter, played by Kristen Cui, a prisoner at a cabin in the woods.
The Cabin at the End of the World, written by Paul Tremblay, was turned into a film.
Paul reportedly admitted: “I honestly spent a significant portion of my 2022 spring putting out Twitter flames and quelling internet rumors around the book and movie.
But with all the information out there, including the IMDb page, it got to the point in early June that that became untenable.
“I’ve been doing my part to respect the goals of movie marketing, and I definitely wouldn’t think of giving anything away.
“Like other adaptations, there will be plot modifications and deviations from the novel, so my readers will still be astonished by the film,” the author said.
With a director committed to the project, Shyamalan had signed the option with FilmNation for the movie back in 2017. However, things “didn’t work out.”
When the initial director didn’t work out, Night was still interested in producing, which led to him wanting to rewrite the script and direct as well, Tremblay continued.
According to reports, the film has a thriller vibe from the 1990s.
The author went on to say: “The home invasion movie subgenre is itself reacted to in “The Cabin at the End of the World.”
“The idea of having my story recreated or refracted on-screen excites and intrigues me the most.
“But if I claimed to be ego-free with regard to the entire experience, I’d be lying. I have a lot of feelings about this book.”
