Today, Universal announced two new thrillers are on their way from writer-director M. Night Shyamalan, the filmmaker behind Glass, Split, Unbreakable, and The 6th Sense, just to name a few.
While no plots or cast have been announced, we do know the films’ theatrical premiere dates, February 26, 2021, and February 17, 2023.
“M. Night Shyamalan continues to create exciting, highly original stories that keep global audiences on the edge of their seats,” Universal President Peter Cramer said. “There is no one like him: he is a master filmmaker working at the height of his powers, and we are honored that he has once again chosen Universal to be the home for his next two incredible projects.”
“There are wonderful studios out there, but Universal has made it a mandate to release original films. They are the best at finding an audience for new stories with unexpected tones. I believe original films are crucial to the longevity of the theatrical experience. I am so excited to be working with them again and bringing new stories to the movie screen for years to come.” Shyamalan stated.
