M. Night Shyamalan’s New Movie is ONE THOUSAND A.E.
M.Night Shyamalan’s next directorial project will be the sci-fi project ONE THOUSAND A.E., and will come with Will Smith attached.
Overbrook, Smith’s production company that he runs with wife Jada Pinkett Smith, James Lassiter, and Ken Stovitz is developing the new Shyamalan project, and while details are hush hush, it looks like ONE THOUSAND A.E. is to be a vehicle for Jaden Smith. There is also a starring role for an adult male, but Will Smith will not be partaking in the part, according to sources.
Unlike most of Shyamalan ‘s films, One Thousand A.E. will not be written by the director. Instead, Shyamalan has turned the pen over to Gary Whitta, who’s writing credits include The Book of Eli, and Undying – which is still in development.
One Thousand A.E. does not currently have a studio backer, but Overbrook has a first look deal with Sony, which is likely where A.E. will find its home.
