Kathryn Hahn and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day star Ed Oxenbould are reportedly attached to star in Sundowning, the latest from 2002's next Spielberg, M. Night Shymalan. The Wrap brings the news, along with what little is yet known about the film, said to be a low-budget project that returns Shyamalan to his origins in spooky genre work. Hahn will play a mother of two and Oxenbould will play her son, a young boy who see's nearly-dead people: Hahn takes him and his sister to visit their grandparents.

From there, it's not clear what happens, but as The Wrap notes, as least part of the answer may lie in the title. "Sundowning," as explained by Wikipedia, "is a psychological phenomenon associated with increased confusion and restlessness in patients with some form of dementia." Most often, it occurs in patients with Alzheimer's disease, life's most disappointing twist ending.
