Production moving to Canada!

State budget impasse chases Shyamalan film to Canada

http://www.philly.com/philly/entertainment/20090825_Backers_could_wait_no_longer_for_tax_credit_.html

Quote
It wasn't the Devil that made M. Night Shyamalan do it. It was the Harrisburg budget impasse.

With uncertainty about whether Pennsylvania's film tax credit will be authorized in the state budget - now in Day 56 of limbo - the supernatural thriller (which Shyamalan wrote and is producing) has relocated production to Toronto.

Though the filmmaker has shot eight of his nine features in the Philadelphia region - for an estimated economic impact of $375 million, according to the local film office - his backers couldn't wait any longer for legislators to approve the incentive that brings filmmaking and jobs to the state.

"Last week, at the 11th hour, Devil withdrew its application for credits because of uncertainty with respect to whether film tax credits would be in the state budget," Jane Saul, director of the Pennsylvania Film Office, said yesterday. "This is an obvious sign that without the film tax credit in place, we lose film business, and in turn, jobs."

Not only has the budget deadlock resulted in productions moving to regions with tax credits, "it has negatively affected our ability to attract new productions," said Sharon Pinkenson, executive director of the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.

Thanks for sharing. Too bad legislators are delaying on such legislation that brings so many jobs to the area.

They shot eight of their nine feature in M.Night home state, that's a good news. I would love them to shoot the whole project in Philly. I don't know because Night directed all his previous movies there.

I am confused about the tax issue. I thought the state was happy the way M.Night directed all his movies in Philly.  ::)

Yeah, with bringing 375 million dollars to the state, should be quite working in your benefit...

If they are going to make the movie a good movie it does not really matter where they shoot it. I just want them to direct a good movie with great cast and performances.

Does anybody know the synopsis for THE DEVIL?

Chris Messina makes deal with 'Devil'

Quote
Universal Pictures has set Chris Messina to star in "Devil," a horror-thriller based on an M. Night Shyamalan story that will be directed by John Erick Dowdle and Drew Dowdle ("Quarantine").

Production begins in Toronto on Oct. 26.

Pic is being produced by Shyamalan and Sam Mercer. It is the first pic in a deal between Shyamalan and Media Rights Capital to create Night Chronicles, a banner that will hatch one genre film per year for the next three years.

Brian Nelson ("30 Days of Night") wrote the script. The Dowdles will be exec producers.

Plot's being kept under wraps, but sources said Messina plays the lead role of Bowden, a sobered-up homicide detective. Messina most recently starred in "Julie and Julia" and "Vicky Cristina Barcelona."

He's repped by WME and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

More Cast Revealed For Shyamalan?s Devil? And Also The Film?s Premise, Maybe?

Quote
On Friday, /Film?s Russ Fischer said of Devil, the upcoming  Dowdle Bros. film from a story by M. Night Shyamalan  and script by Brian Nelson, that ?The film starts shooting in Toronto a week from Monday, and that?s all we?ve got. It?s tightly under wraps, and has been for a while. Which, I suspect, really means that there?s some info out there that we haven?t dug up yet.?

Look?s like we?ve now managed to dig a bit of it up, with a little help from our friends. Be wary of potential spoilers as you read on.

After Russ? post was published, I received a kindly nudge in the direction of the film?s logline. Googling it (of course) I found it published on just one site - the rather unexpected Hollywood.Com. Here it is, word for word:

    A group of people are trapped in an elevator, and one of them is the devil.

As simple as that. So, I began digging further to see what else I could find. Again, the info was in an unexpected place? it was right here, at /Film. Right under my nose.

Back when Peter reported on the film changing shooting location to Canada, we received a comment from Only Read if you want to know. It read:

    Devil is basically a supernatural thriller set inside of an office building. There are some people stuck in an elevator, and one of them is not who they say they are (*cough* it?s in the title *caugh*)

    There is also a security guard and a policeman. The security guard is trying to convince the policeman to get them out of the elevator. He is also trying to convince the policeman that he is the chosen one to save the people.

The commenter later followed up with:

    Total truth man, inside info from the script, it?s a cool concept, the script is a little weak, but it could be made up in style.

So, that?s now three sources in corroboration. I?m calling this one? and if you?re reading this, Only Read, I?d love a look at that script myself. Thanks for your info.

In further Devil news, The Hollywood Reporter have rounded up a more comprehensive cast list. As well as Chris Messina they name Bojana Novakovic, Bokeem Woodbine, Geoffrey Arend and Caroline Dhavernas. Place your bets now on who will be the eponymous evil. I?m betting on there being a real angel in there too.

The plot is exactly like the DEVIL. How did you find out about this assassin movie, Erik?

Hold on... the article which was released about 2 weeks ago it revealed the plot of DEVIL. It might not be true. And, if it's true then this assassin movie might not be a big budget movie which won't make much impact on the DEVIL. This assassin movie could be a fearnet material movie which won't release in the big screen.

I read somewhere that the movie opens with a car crash (or that it already happened and the rescue team just started helping). This could be that scene? It's dramatic in the rain, kind of reminds me of what's written in the Labor Of Love script.

DEVIL is about group of people stuck in an office building elevator. Among them is a DEVIL. One of them is the DEVIL. I don't want a pure twist ending, but a little twist in a story will make this movie special. I said special because the plot is simply. I mean, a group of people could be stuck anywhere. I am sure ELEVATOR has something to do with the plot or ending. There is something unique.

That's a great question, Mr. Glass. If they are going to be stuck in the elevator for the whole movie. Then, we will be seeing lots of disagreements, arguments, cries, cell phone using (if there is reception)- people trying to get out. Lots of yelling, there is going to be nail biting suspense, some flashbacks of central characters and of course some people trying to figure a way to get in from outside to help these people.... but there is a DEVIL among them. I can't wait. May be the DEVIL is their destiny. They are meant to be stuck in the elevator.

What would you do Mr. Glass if you were stuck in a elevator? - If that's in my destiny in future, I better be stuck with a hot chick. Someone like "Bar Rafaeli" or some hot chick.

And if not a chick and coincidently you are stuck with M.Night Shyamalan. It will be easy to get out then, right?

if this movie really takes place in a single setting, then its gonna need to have 1. some really good writing 2. an unpredictable plot.


if the movie turns out to be anything like rohan's guess, then it's gonna suck cause that's what everyone is going in expecting.

and honestly, brian nelson hasn't done anything exceptionally well-written. hard candy was good, but that relied a lot on the content, rather than the dialogue.

Is this going to be like Alfred Hitchcock's LIFEBOAT? Remove the NAZI part and bring the DEVIL?

MRC, UNIVERSAL MAKE 20 PIC, FIVE-YEAR PACT

DEADLINE
 
Media Rights Capital and Universal Pictures closed a deal that will put up to 20 MRC-generated films through the studio distribution pipeline over a five-year period. The pact begins in 2011.

While MRC partners Modi Wiczyk and Asif Satchu have done repeat business at Universal, this is a new wrinkle in their formula of  assembling and funding film packages with big stars and directors, and then licensing distribution to studios on a case by case basis. Those deals were structured to give creative freedom and maximum upside to stars and directors, and eventual ownership stakes in the films when copyrights revert back to MRC years down the line.
The Universal deal is a rent-a-system deal in which the studio will supply its marketing and distribution expertise for a distribution fee. Universal doesn't have first look at MRC projects, and MRC can pre-sell films domestically and in foreign territories. Universal can possibly opt in as an investor in these films. or not. What the deal gives MRC is a guaranteed major studio distribution outlet, to entice artists as it tries to expand its filmmaking program.

The deal doesn't impact Universal's homegrown film slate.

Universal has been involved in MRC's highest profile movie packages. The relationship began with the Sacha Baron Cohen-starrer Bruno, which Universal acquired for North American and some offshore territories for $42.5 million, just as buzz was growing on Borat. The film grossed $60 million domestic and $139 million worldwide. Universal then acquired The Adjustment Bureau, the George Nolfi-directed scifi pic that stars Matt Damon and Emily Blunt. and will be released July 30, and the M. Night Shyamalan-produced thriller, Devil. The studio most recently acquired Ted, a $65 million budget R-rated comedy that will mark the feature directorial debut of Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. MRC's other prolific studio relationship has been Warner Bros, which distributed the Robert Rodriguez-directed Shorts, the Ricky Gervais comedy Invention of Lying (Universal released the film overseas) and the Cameron Diaz-starrer The Box. MRC pacted with Sony on 30 Minutes or Less, the comedy directed by Zombieland's Ruben Fleischer.

Backed by Goldman Sachs and AT&T with JP Morgan and Comerica its credit facilities, MRC plans to expand its film output. The track record so far has been mixed, and MRC has yet to score a real breakout hit. MRC is currently prepping the next film by District 9 director Neill Blomkamp, but hasn't yet figured out which studio to place it with.

Universal and MRC confirmed the deals and issued statements.

"We've been continually impressed with the quality of talent that MRC brings to the table," said Universal Pictures chairman Adam Fogelson. "By leveraging our strong marketing and distribution operations we can augment our own slate and expand our relationship with MRC, bringing more value to Universal."

Said MRC's Wiczyk: "MRC has always had the ability to greenlight and fully finance our films. With this deal, we now have another powerful tool for our artist partners, providing them with automatic access to the marketing and distribution expertise of a major studio."

M. Night Shyamalan Explains Origins Of 'Devil'
'Night Chronicles' trilogy is a world where the 'worst things happen,' director tells MTV News.


M. Night Shyamalan is not letting the rather mixed reviews for "The Last Airbender" darken his easygoing spirit or dampen his creative verve. Late last month, as "Airbender" continued to rake in dough overseas, Shyamalan sat down with MTV News to chat about his upcoming "Devil," which follows five strangers trapped in an elevator ? one of whom just might be the Prince of Darkness.

The film is the first in his planned "Night Chronicles" trilogy, a series based on his original ideas and helmed by other directors, and Shyamalan seems to relish the idea of getting out of the director's chair and into the role of producer, a job he likened to being the goalie on a hockey team.

As part of our Fall Movie Preview, Shyamalan talked amiably about the film's genesis, how he's openly borrowed from other directors throughout his career and why he has such a complicated relationship with the public and the press.

MTV: This is an M. Night Shyamalan film, but it's not an M. Night Shyamalan-directed film. What does that mean?

M. Night Shyamalan: Well, it just means I have a bunch of stories, a lot of journals I wrote, a lot of movie ideas that I really thought I was going to direct, and then I get another idea and I fill another journal. And I just decided to make a few of them and get really exciting young filmmakers to come and challenge me and show me everything and get some camaraderie going. It's so lonely making movies, dude. You sit in a room by yourself and do it, and I've always kind of dreamed of having like, you know, a group of friends and we all make movies and I say, 'Hey, what do you think about this?" And they say, "That sucks! And this is why it sucks," and I go, "Really? Because I thought it was fantastic!" And they have that thing and have different languages of storytellers.

So, basically, we started a series of movies called "The Night Chronicles," and "Devil" is the first one. I hired John and Drew Dowdle, who absolutely killed it in this independent movie called "The Poughkeepsie Tapes," which is an absolutely traumatic experience to watch. We watched it in our house, we had just moved into our new house, and I felt totally violated. I didn't want to live there anymore, and I was like, "Who did this movie?" We saw their second movie, "Quarantine," which was so much fun, and I was like, "I gotta meet these guys, these guys would be perfect for 'Devil.' "

MTV: With "The Night Chronicles," do you imagine this all to be one creepy universe?

Shyamalan: It's funny you should say that. As we were getting ready, we're gearing up the second one, I was like, "Do they all live in the same world? Do they reference something that happened in an elevator down the other side of town in Philadelphia?" And we have a line in there so it could be that and maybe there's, like, little reoccurring characters that kind of tell you this is all one world where weird stuff happens.

MTV: A creepy world that's fun to visit but not to live in maybe.

Shyamalan: Yeah, definitely! A world where all your worst things happen.

MTV: What was the idea in the notebook that created this one?

Shyamalan: I remember when I wrote in the notebook, it's this little black notebook ... choosing a whole notebook about what the idea in the notebook [is], is a whole ritual by the way. It's like you have to match the notebook, I'm really OCD about it, and "This is too thin, and this is not the right, the lines are too thick, are too far apart, this isn't the spirit of this." I'm like insane!

MTV: There's not one uniform notebook for all the movies?

Shyamalan: Yeah. When I go traveling and all, going to journal places or paper-book is a huge thing! Like for me, I make everyone stop when we go and I go, "No, this is not it." It's ridiculous! It's ridiculous. But in this little black journal that "Devil" was in, the first thing I wrote was like, "Five people trapped in an elevator, one of them is the devil. And one by one, they each get killed off until you see who the devil is." And it kind of was like an Agatha Christie nod.

MTV: There's almost like a "Twilight Zone"-ish vibe. Do you think you look for influences? Are you more focused on your own thing or do you think of other movies that were close to this in spirit?

Shyamalan: If it feels similar to something else that makes me feel icky, you know like, "Oh, they did that in, 'Close Encounters' or something," if I'm conscious of it, it bothers me. When I watch "The Sixth Sense," when I see the cabinet scene, it bothers me because it's so familiar from "Poltergeist" with the chairs on the table and I'm like, "Dude, I totally ripped them off!" And so you feel really bad. Whenever I meet filmmakers that I like, I'm like, "Total apologies for ripping you off, and I'm sure I've done it a hundred times and you've been cursing me out watching [like] 'This guy's just stealing my stuff!' "

MTV: As long as you're ripping off the best.

Shyamalan: Absolutely, exactly! The greatest. I met Robert Wise once and I was like, "Dude, I've stolen everything from 'The Haunting' that you made. It's fantastic!"

MTV: When you're producing this, are you on set? What's your day-to-day role in this?

Shyamalan: My feeling about "The Night Chronicles" is it isn't like "Oh, I'm watching over it like a policeman." I completely see myself now as the goalie, and I hired these guys to score as many points, win the championship, and if somebody gets by them, I'll be there to try and stop the puck. That's how the Dowdles felt about it, and I felt really comfortable in that role of "Hey, I'm watching you do your thing, you're amazing. I hired you because I believed in you, I want to be inspired by you, I want you to teach me about filmmaking." And if there's something that goes by, I would be like, "Oh, that kid's performance is really going to be a problem, we should address it and reshoot it," I catch it in the end and we talk about it and say, "These are the three things that are bothering me, we should work on it."

MTV: Most of your work has been PG-13. Is that important to you? Do you think that's better, and do you put a limit on yourself so that it builds better suspense?

Shyamalan: Absolutely, it's exactly right. When you can't show it, it makes you think in much more creative ways of insinuation and glimpsing something and how can we show someone getting killed in an elevator and not show it. You imply it and it happened, and if it's really gruesome, how do you imply it? Your imagination becomes active, and what you really try to do, especially in suspense movies, which is my favorite style of filmmaking, is you have to engage the audience as a participant; it's not a complete painting. Actually there's a quote from Walter Murch that I love about incompleteness and why he thought black-and-white movies had such power is they're slightly incomplete, they're not reality-based. The audience was part of finishing the painting. They were finishing the picture they were seeing, and so it was very customized and very internal and scary to them.

MTV: How do you create, kind of set pieces? How do you amp up the suspense and action if you're confined to that one space?

Shyamalan: I love confinement. It's not something I find as a limitation, but more as an excitement. I get very uncomfortable with the, "You've got the whole world, and there's events happening all around the world," and I'm like, "No, it's one house with a family," and I enjoy that ... thinking what could happen in a very, very small space. In fact, most of "The Night Chronicles," most of those ideas are very confined, big ideas kept in a little area.

MTV: Is there a scene that you felt is really going to scare the hell out of people?

Shyamalan: Oh my gosh, they did such a good job. The best part about me watching these guys do it ? because, every single decision wasn't mine ? I watch it as an audience member. When we have a preview screening, I'm one of the people screaming! You hear seven girls and me screaming in the back. I'm like, "Ahhh!"

MTV: You're one of these guys that has this thing about them, with your mix of successes and failures. Do you feel philosophical about that, do you understand what that's about?

Shyamalan: Yeah, it's something that I've thought about a bunch because my normal environment of the people I work with, the X-amount of a people that I work with to make movies, is such a calm and friendly and non-confrontational way. I've gotten angry, like, four times in my life, and one was over basketball. We all hang out. I feel very close to everybody. The famous version of me doesn't reflect ? doesn't have any bearing. I don't even know who they're talking about most of the time. I think that we all think of ourselves as we were in high school, and I was definitely the uncool kid in high school and definitely got made fun of when I walked in, like, "Those pants?" ? that guy. I'm OK with that and I know I'm not going to be Mr. Cool and I'll always be on the outside of things a little bit and had to become comfortable with it.

There's good things and bad things with that, because you see things in a different way, because you don't know how to quite fit in. I don't know quite how to be cool. I remember I had my first movie in a festival in Toronto and all of us had our first movies. There was me, Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Baz Luhrmann, we were all 22, 23 years old, and they were so cool and I was making this kind of sincere movie about a kid in India, and I felt so uncool and I was cringing and they were so cool and hanging out and edgy and I'm like, "Uh, uh!" And I kind of feel that way all the time. I wish I could be naturally more cool and edgy. So I understand the dynamic because it feels kind of familiar to me. The guy who makes fun of me with his friends and then comes like, "Hey you wanna hang out?" and I'm like, "But you just made fun of me!" "All right, let's go play Atari."

From the saucy Jessica Alba in "Little Fockers" to James Franco's grueling journey in "127 Hours," the MTV Movies team is delving into the hottest flicks of fall 2010. Check back daily for exclusive clips, photos and interviews with the films' biggest stars.

I haven't seen TLA, but Devil should be a great movie.  It's now out in a week from today (for me at least). Does any one here think they know who the Devil is in the movie?  My guess is that it's the girl who gets wounded in the trailer, and that that part was only a ploy to freak everyone else out. What do you guys think?

Well see if you guys can predict what happens at the end.  I keep reading the synopsis that one of the 5 characters in the elevator may actually be the devil. 

I found this cool poll up where you can vote on who you think is the devil here: http://mthirty.com/mtrack/r/devilfacebook (http://mthirty.com/mtrack/r/devilfacebook)

Check it out and vote. I still think it's the nice lady, which is who I voted for of course.  So far the elevator itself is winning in the poll.  :o hahaha
