The Hollywood Reporter has published exclusive news that James McAvoy is in talks to star in M. Night Shamaylan’s latest film. Details about the film have been kept under wraps, but sources say that it will be filmed in Philadelphia – the setting of many of Shamaylan’s films.
The supernatural thriller remains untitled, but Shamaylan’s priors indicate that if nothing else, it will be successful. His most recent film The Visit managed to make $53 million at the box office on a minimal budget of $5 million. Among the few things we do know, we are currently aware that Jason Blum is producing, while Marc Bienstock is also on board.
