While both critics and audiences weren’t kind to M. Night Shyamalan‘s Old, I found it quite enjoyable and look forward to his next foray into horror.
It was announced Wednesday night that Shyamalan’s next is officially titled Knock at the Cabin, which Universal Pictures will release in theaters on February 3, 2023, a few weeks earlier than originally slated. This sets the film up for a strong box office run throughout Valentine’s Day weekend and keeps it at distance from Disney’s Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania.
In a previous social post this past summer, the director teased the project: “The next one. On third draft. Super tight. Under a 100 pages.” A nice thought considering the epilogue for Old ran about 15 minutes too long.
Shyamalan is also be producing a thriller titled The Vanishings at Caddo Lake, which is being helmed by Celine Held & Logan George (Topside) and revolves around an 8-year-old girl who mysteriously vanishes on Caddo Lake, when a series of past deaths and disappearances begin to link together, forever altering a broken family’s history. Shyamalan is producing that through his Blinding Edge Pictures.
