M. Night Shyamalan's back with another movie. This one is titled, quite creatively, "The Happening" will mark Shyamalan's first R-rated effort. It's a paranoid thriller about a family on the run from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity. The pic is expected to carry a budget of around $57 million.
"We talked about trying to get the kind of intensity that is present in 'Silence of the Lambs,' and the kind that Guillermo del Toro got in `Pan's Labyrinth,'" Shyamalan said.
Ha! Enduring the misery that was "Lady in the Water," (not to mention "Unbreakable," "Signs," and "The Village") I'm confident of one thing: this film will not be "Pan's Labyrinth."
