M. Night Shyamalan is gearing up to release "The Last Airbender" and he is allegedly preparing a new project at the same time. According to The Hollywood Reporter (THR), the moviemaker "is quietly circulating a new script around town".
Little has been known about the project details as Shyamalan is famously secretive. However, A-list stars Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bruce Willis are said to be "loosely attached to star in the film."
To keep the project a secret, Shyamalan reportedly only allows top studio execs to read the script. THR further reports that the studio bosses have to be supervised by a Shyamalan assistant during the process. And when they finish reading, the assistant will take the script back and leave.
M. Night Shyamalan released his first film "Praying with Anger" in 1992. He gained international recognition when writing and directing 1999 "The Sixth Sense" which was followed by "Unbreakable". However, his next movies "The Village", "Lady in the Water" and "The Happening" were panned by critics. It now depends on the performance of "The Last Airbender" to see whether or not the filmmaker will return to his glorious moment.
