With his upcoming thriller The Visit, director M. Night Shyamalan looks to be back to his old ways in a good sense. And the word on The Visit is good enough that Shyamalan will be joining up with producer Jason Blum for his next project.
But that isn’t the only reunion set to happen. Deadline is reporting that Joaquin Phoenix will once again join Shyamalan for his next big screen project.
Phoenix first teamed with the director in 2002 for the alien invasion flick Signs. The duo would then work together again for the critically panned The Village. The two haven’t worked on the same project since that box office bomb.
Not much is known about exactly what the movie will be about, but with Shyamalan you can expect some kind of thrill element and a couple of twists and turns.
Phoenix is known to be picky about what projects he does and he tends to pick movies based on which interesting directors he gets to work with. Hopefully this turns out to be another success for the two, as Shyamalan could be poised for a comeback after his series Wayward Pines debuted to good reviews this past spring.
