M. Night Shyamalan teases fans with a photo of the script for her upcoming project. It was reported in 2019 that Shyamalan will release his next two films by Universal Studios, with 2021 Old being the first of the pair to come out. The other should be released in 2023. It seems that this is the second project.
The iconic director posted a photo on his Twitter showing an unlabeled filing cabinet that contains the script of everything he does next. The tweet was accompanied by the caption, “Next up. On the third draft. Super tight. Less than 100 pages.” A vague caption with no tag and no actual script visible in the tweet, there is nothing that can really be gleaned from this post other than what is presented at face value, although we can try to look at its betting history. up to Twitter to try to figure something out.
This isn’t the first time that Shymalan has provided updates on scripts or teased possible updates on projects via Twitter. In 2019, Shyamalan released a similar picture of a binder that contained the first draft of a script and in 2017, Shyamalan posted that he had completed a script, which was going to be that of 2019 Glass. The fact that he said this was his third draft rather than a finished script means there is at least one overhaul left before filming and even longer before seeing the finished product. The phrase “super tight” and the fact that the script is less than a hundred pages long also seems to indicate a smaller scale movie similar to Visit rather than go back to a large scale, big budget movies like The last air Master Where After Earth.
With Old and this unnamed project, Shyamalan also worked as an executive producer and director on the psychological horror series Apple TV + The servant. The series currently has 20 episodes over two seasons, the second ending March 19, 2021. The series was renewed in December 2020 for a third season, with filming ending in June 2021.
