Title: Meet And Greet "Wishes" with M.Night Shyamalan
Post by: Rohan on September 26, 2010, 05:53:39 PM
Since few of you brought this idea up on the "Reincarnate" thread I thought to open a thread for the topic. Now, Mnightfans.com is not officially sure we will be able to meet Shyamalan and do a meet and greet with him, but we can discuss about it. About the possibilities, questions you might have and want Mnightfans.com to ask Shyamalan.

Personally, I would love to have MNightfans.com to sit in a round table discussion with M.Night Shyamalan afterall we are all fans of his work and will always be and I am sure that M.Night Shyamalan will appreciate it since we appreciate his work, his dedication and his love for cinema.

Teddy have met Shyamalan few times and I have asked him about Shyamalan's personality and I was told that he is a chilled and a laid back individual and who likes to laugh and talk about films. There is a possibility.

So post your comments, ideas and questions. "Who knows may be some day in future Mnightfans.com will get the chance to discuss with Shyamalan".

Meet and greet would totally rock my socks, but even an online web chat or something would be great too. I know a lot of authors who do that so people who can't get travel easily can still "Attend".

That would be amazing. From reading the posts here, I get the impression many Shyamalan fans are aspiring writers or filmmakers of one kind or another, or at least serious movie fans. I'm sure there would be lots of good questions.

Not just an aspiring writer! I am a writer! Though I'm still aspiring for the title of "full time author". Hahaha

Seriously though, there's so much I want to ask him about Lady and Village, and Unbreakable as well...and my big question is would he ever consider a crossover film-like have Cole Sear run into Cleveland Heep or something. Even if it was just a passing-on-the-street kind of move, with a new character bumping into an old one, it would be wicked.

What kind of things would you guys ask?

I'd have lots of questions about The Village since it's my favorite, how he comes up with his ideas and about what new projects he's working on.

To answer your questions.

1- How he comes up with this ideas?

M.Night Shyamalan usually comes up with ideas when he is on the sets of his movies. He came up with the idea of THE HAPPENING when he was shooting "Lady In The Water". He came up with idea of "Unbreakable" when he was shooting "The Sixth Sense". He also stated that usually ideas comes to him when he is traveling. Flying or driving. He also once stated that usually ideas comes to him when he looks at the crowd of people, citizens walking around in his city or downtown areas.



2- New Projects.


The ones that I think he will be diirecting is a thriller and the other one is a sci-fi.

No news on his sci-fi film yet. We post all the latest news on front main page of the site.

Yay a new thriller by M. Night! Can't wait for it. It should pretty damn good since it probably won't be made till either the Night Chronicles are over, or he's done with TLA 2. So I guess my question would be when does he hope to shoot his thriller or sci-fi?
Title: Re: Meet And Greet "Wishes" with M.Night Shyamalan

The thriller is in pre-production and will be produced at the same time as the other 2 Night Chronicles. After that, we might get a TLA sequel, or his Sci-Fi.

Should be somewhat like this:
-Reincarnate: 2011
-Night Chronicle 3: 2012
-M. Night's own thriller: 2012
-SciFi or TLA 2: 2014.

If they're going to wait that long for TLA 2 they shouldn't make it. It would be worse than the Harry Potter age gaps! lol

Don't forget that UNBREAKABLE was repurposed for "Night Chronicles". I think the 3rd film under the chronicles will be Unbreakable.

Yes, Night Chronicle 3 is the Unbreakable... Let's call it 'spin off'

Post by: Imalshen on September 29, 2010, 06:48:19 PM
Spin-off sounds about right...not sure what the official term would be...reinvention?
Title: Re: Meet And Greet "Wishes" with M.Night Shyamalan
Post by: Rohan on September 29, 2010, 09:01:34 PM
According to Shyamalan himself UNBREAKABLE sequel is a sequel, but still not a sequel.

Hahaha. Typical Night statement.  :D <3 I guess it'll all make sense when we see it, and not a minute sooner--ok so maybe when we see the trailer.

lol...I'm confused  ???

Confused?

I was confused as well and I think he is doing this to tease us and finally he revealed it kinda. The villian and the plot for the proposed sequel will be used for a different movie entirely.

The idea for the villian was a cool idea to him so he took it for a sequel under one of NIGHT CHRONICLE projects. And, that villian idea was originally for "Unbreakable 1" I think it was too much for him to show all characters on the same screen. So he decided to take out that villian and he kept it in secret for the second film which will be a standalone flick. Nothing related kinda to original Unbreakable.

And I believe he is planning that after "Reincarnate"

I think when I first heard "Unbreakable 2" I assumed it was going to be the sequel to the original story with the original characters. Either way, it sounds interesting & I'm looking forward to it  :D  Will there be more than three Night Chronicles films or is that it for now?

Same here. I am looking forward to it. I want him to direct it though. I was thinking the other day that he is currently writing his original thriller and he also mentioned that he is working on a sci-fi story. I thought what if Unbreakable 2 is his sci-fi project then I changed my mind because it can't be scif-fi.

He announced only 3 picture a year deal with MRC. All low budget films with good directors, writers, actors and good stories. They will see if these three films will work and make some money. In my opinion it is a very smart idea to run the film business and I think this way M.Night is contributing to cinema which I am very thankful to him for. And the good thing about "Night Chronicles" is that they are all original ideas.


After these 3 films, I am sure Night will start the 4 one. He may exapnd the banner and make big budget films or who knows he may get involved with new diredtors and turn it to DREAMWORK kind of production house.

Yeah, it's a great idea as a business model and as a way to give up-and-coming writers, directors and actors an opportunity. I hope the first 3 are just the beginning.
