Whether or not 'After Earth' breaks the run of bad luck M. Night Shyamalan has had at the box office these last few years, TV is proving eager to receive the one-time 'Sixth Sense' director. Apart from the previous 'Moby Dick' drama 'Lost Horizon' we'd heard about from NBC, FOX has turned to Shyamalan to develop a new longform series for the 2014 season titled 'Wayward Pines.' Might the spooky thriller be Shyamalan's comeback vehicle? New details inside!
A new poster for next year's science fiction epic 'After Earth' has emerged and our first thought is that it looks a heckuva lot like the poster for 'Oblivion,' another sci-fi epic hitting theaters next year. The similarities don't end there -- both films are headlined by major movie stars, both are helmed by directors who really need a hit and both take place on desolated future versions of Earth. But enough of that! Check out the poster below!
What a twist! Just the other day, we were telling you how TV continues to attract more high profile film directors, and shows no signs of stopping. The Wachowskis have begun shopping a mysterious new project, even Guillermo del Toro has a few ideas in the works, so who's the latest? We hope you're stitting down for a twist of this calliber, because M. Night Shyamalan has begun developing a project for NBC...about Moby Dick! Boom, twisted again!
