The End Draws Nearer: M. Night Shyamalan and Jaden Smith Are Making a Movie

October 21, 2010


O, what a terrible alliance that's formed in the wake of our communal ire.

It seems, for whatever reason, all the studios passed on the top-secret project M. Night Shyamalan was shopping around over the summer--something with Bruce Willis, Bradley Cooper, and Gwyneth Paltrow--so the twist-loving director has abandoned that entirely in favor of a new top-secret film. This one, a sci-fi film called One Thousand A.E., was written by Book of Eli's Gary Whitta, and has already found a willing production company in Will and Jada Pinkett Smith's Overbrook. And, of course, signing his soul to the Smiths came with the usual caveat: he's gonna have to put the Karate Kid in this thing. Thus, as Heat Vision tells it, we now have a film being developed by M. Night Shyamalan as a starring vehicle for Jaden Smith. Won't that be something? The audience's deafening laughter during the trailers will be surpassed only by the wacky cash register sound effects that play when Will Smith shakes his little "star" hard enough.
