M. Night Shyamalan Probably 'Pulling His Hair Out' Editing 'Last Airbender,' Says Aasif Mandvi

Quote
M. Night Shyamalan wrapped production on the Philadelphia set of "The Last Airbender" in June. What's the plot twist-loving director been up to since then?

According to one of the film's stars, Shyamalan is stressing the hell out as he pieces together scenes from a four-month production that is two-and-a half-times bigger than anything he's ever worked on before.

Nah, he was talking about a new idea that he wants to direct personally. Not Devil or something for Night Chronicles.

Yeah, but I'm afraid it could take his focus off of The last Airbender, which wouldn't be good.

He will be fine.  Frank Marshall stated that it will take 6 years to finish all the 3 bender movies.

She is probably not. According to this (http://avatar.wikia.com/wiki/Film:Nicola_Peltz) page, she is 15. But the page is not dated and her date of birth is not given. Though I guess the page is not older then 1 year, so that would make her 16.

I know, but I don't care what MTV thinks of him. I think M.Night is too good to direct BREAKING DAWN. He is not going to do it anyways. MTV has no credibility.

I was really pleased with (reading) the round table interview given by Shyamalan.  We all know (as fans) what Shyamalan brings to the table as a director.  Hopefully he got more sensible young fans to join his band wagon.

I really liked how he called JNH his brother and the special collaborative relationship they share.  For me, JNH is the only other person than Night who gets the essence of each of these films.  I think this is the single reason why he scores such a tremendous level of music for Night's movies.

I agree with you. I can't imagine someone else doing the score and composing for M.Night. JNH is bonded with M.Night's work. I think he gets it. He loves doing the score for his stories. I know lots of people don't like THE HAPPENING, but the score is beautiful, dark and very poetic.

I'm really happy that JNH doing the score for TLA.

NIGHT: Next I?m going to do a thriller. I?m writing it. It?ll be fun to do after this.

JULINA: Can you tell me anything about it?

I'm the nerd who will get midnight IMAX 3D tickets the first chance available and get to the theatre by lunchtime (ok so 3pm after work) the day before to get first seats. lol My friends love me for that though.

M. Night Shyamalan Sets 'Buried' Writer Chris Sparling For Night Chronicles Thriller

http://www.deadline.com/2010/06/m-night-shyamalan-sets-buried-writer-chris-sparling-for-night-chronicles-thriller/

Quote
M. Night Shyamalan has set the second feature to be made through his genre producing banner The Night Chronicles. The project comes as Shyalaman promotes development exec Ashwin Rajan to president of production for the Media Rights Capital-backed genre label. Shyamalan and MRC set Chris Sparling to write Twelve Strangers, a thriller that involves a jury deliberating a case involving the supernatural. Sparling scripted Buried, the Rodrigo Cortes-directed Ryan Reynolds-in-a-coffin thriller snapped up by Lionsgate after a raucous midnight premiere screening at Sundance by the writer's UTA reps.

Rajan is the former agent with whom Shyamalan launched the company to produce projects based on the filmmaker?s ideas. The construct of Shyamalan's original three-year deal with MRC is to make one film a year with up and coming filmmakers. They've wrapped the first Night Chronicles film, the John Dowdle-directed Devil.

The thriller will be distributed next February 11 by Universal. That studio, coincidentally, is the major that so far has shown the most interest in the untitled Shyamalan-scripted thriller that CAA is shopping as his possible next directing project. I'm told Bradley Cooper would play a father on a desperate search for his missing child.  It might stray into Taken terrain, but the father taps into some supernatural powers to aid the search. THR reported that Cooper, Bruce Willis and Gwyneth Paltrow are loosely attached. There is no certainty a deal will close at Universal, and I?m told there's interest from some non-studio backers.

Shyamalan?s now preoccupied with launching The Last Airbender. Paramount long ago carved out  a pre-Independence Day release date. The July 1 date gives the film a shot at the family film crowd, between Toy Story 3/Grown Ups and the Universal/Illumination animated film Despicable Me.

Yeah, that's true. Though I think a lot of people stick around just to be negative, you know?

For example, I knew a guy, he wasn't into Night, it was another producer that I can't think of now, but he said "I just watch his movies to see how badly he fails." and I told him he really had to get a life if that was the case. Wish I could remember who it was...Jerry Bruckheimer maybe...

Yeah. People call me socially awkward because I say what's in my head. I call it brutally honest. The other day a girl was picking on a webcomic writing friend of mine for missing an update because her Mum was in the hospital. She said it was "unproffessional." I typed back. "Want to be professional? Learn to spell." No attempt at being polite, me.

I know. His face went really red, but he couldn't argue with me, because he doesn't have a life, and he knew it.

I'm surprised my mouth, or my actions, don't get me into more trouble than they do. A guy insulted my faith at lunch in high school, and I wordlessly sprayed him in the face with my juice, and calmly walked away (a friend told me four years later that all the guys at the table thought I was awesome for that. lol) and I also said to a triple parking, extended-truck driving student at the school "That's a mighty big truck you've got there. Compensating for something?" lol Everyone was thinking it! I just said it. When you have 500 seniors and only 50 student parking spaces, no one should be allowed to take three. He drove a Nissan to school after that.
