Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: dblockdedicated on August 02, 2006, 02:42:44 PM
 On "The View", M. Night Shyamalan said to the hosts that his next film was in the sci-fi genre. He kinda implied that Paul Giamatti was in it, because he mentioned that Bryce Dallas Howard would not be cast by her anymore since being in two movies (big dissapointment!!) Anybody excited for this?? Any thoughts??

 didn't he say it was going to have a big star? Paul isn't exactly one.. :huh:

Post by: Specter on August 02, 2006, 08:31:35 PM
 Paul Giamatti is a smaller star, but he's got a lot of credentials to his name.  He may not be the biggest star, but he's a fantastic actor, and deserves all the great roles that he can get.

 This stuff seems a little confusing at first, but I'm going to lay-out all that I remeber hearing....

He has stated he has two Ideas
-One is Sci-Fi/Adventure in a similar realm to Jurassic Park
-The other is a Dark/Mystery in the vien of Agatha Chrisite and Alfred Hitchcock.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, now that we know that, let's look back.
Here is a breakdown of events/interviews when he has talked about this stuff.

In an interview after ShoWest this year he said that his next movie is 'very hitchcockian'.

In an interview during the press junkets for 'Lady', Shyamalan stated that he won't say much, but his next film will have a 'big star'.

On 'The View' (pre 'Lady' release) he said his next movie was Sci-Fi

It was in a recent interview with Time Magazine that he went back to saying he has two ideas and he's not sure which one to do.
I'm still trying to figure out which came first, the Time magazine interview, or The View....anyone?

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok, now with all that in mind...
Who's this big star eh?
Is it someone he has wrote the part for?
Someone he as already talked to about it?
When I think of big stars I think of:
Tom Hanks
Tom Cruise
Julia Roberts
Johnny Depp
Brad Pitt
Denzel Washington
hmmm...(starting to run out of ideas)
Bruce Willis
Sam Jackson
Morgan Freeman
Mel Gibson
Nicole Kidman
Will Smith


who have I left out?
comments, thoughts, ideas?


p.s.
Wow, what a long post.
Great Topic and Forum Specter!
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: dblockdedicated on August 02, 2006, 09:41:35 PM
 yea, the time magazine was before the view, the view is most current.

Dunno, if he wants to score with critics, do sci-fi, if he wants to score with audiences, do scariest one.
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on August 02, 2006, 10:14:29 PM
 Sounds like the SciFi one is ment to win back the audience
and
the Dark/Mystery one is ment to win back the critics

Hopefully he can do both
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: dblockdedicated on August 02, 2006, 10:16:17 PM
 Hopefully, he can get back to form, like in the Village, and stop being so damn sensitive to things said about him.
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: okokokok on August 02, 2006, 11:17:57 PM
 Sci-Fi? It has to be the Jurrasic Park idea.  Whats he gonna do with dinosaurs I wonder?!?  I can't even begin to imagine.

 I wasn't knocking him as an actor at all, I just wasn't classifying him as a big star.  ;)

Post by: buriedsecrets on August 06, 2006, 08:21:32 PM
 i actually do think of giamatti as a big star.  he's got cred, awards, this and that, and less bad publicity than some of the others...

re: the list of big stars above, it seems like he has a relationship with johnny depp (who appeared as a favor in buried secrets of m. night shyamalan).  hope it's him!

Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on August 06, 2006, 09:43:10 PM
 I would freak if it was Johnny Depp, just freak!
My brother would freak if it was Denzel Washington.

For some reason I'm thinking it's Tom Hanks or Johnny Depp. It's just a feelin, but you never know. Too bad we'll have to wait 6-10 months to find out. :angry:

Post by: Dr.Hill42 on August 07, 2006, 12:26:25 PM
 Big star...could it be a female role? If so, who would that be?
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on August 07, 2006, 12:44:05 PM
 In my list I put Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman. I'm trying to think of other female leads that can sell a movie just on their name alone. I know there are others.
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: leelee on August 07, 2006, 05:59:57 PM
 yeah I also think it'd be awesome if it were mr. depp. It'd be cool seeing those two work together!

 Hi all. Just registered today. Been a Night fan since Sixth Sense & love all of his films. Going to watch Lady next weekend.

On the topic of his 'next project' I hope that it will Star someone like Tom Hanks who I think is one of the greatest actors around today.

I like the sound of the 'Hitchcokian' film, I think Night has a way of making things 'different' in films and is always able to scare whenever he needs to. Not sure where he would go with the 'jurrassic park' type film, although i love those films i feel something dark and menacing, pyscological thrillers are his best.

I was thinking aof something new and original.. maybe he could work on a film called 'Everest' about the yeti, think what he could do with that, filming and special effects! Plus it would really annoy Disney as they have just brougt out there new ride based on the Yeti this year!!

Let me know what you guys (and girls, sorry) think

 
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: Specter on September 05, 2006, 06:32:54 PM
I still think it'll be Paul Giamatti.  He's a fantastic actor.

Post by: gonzito on August 14, 2006, 04:37:48 PM
 on chud.com he says that it will be something very new and fresh,and yes there willl be a big star but not paul...  
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: Cleveland Heep on August 16, 2006, 02:42:40 PM
 The next one will definetly have a twist ending.

especially if he says it is "very hitchcockian".
 
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: JASPER on August 18, 2006, 07:19:42 AM
 Yes, should definately have a twist, and be a dark thriller in my view.
Let M Night show them all he is the best at Twists / Thriller in the business.

Anybody else heard any more news on his next project, where is the best place to keep checking.

I think on the back of Lady he should announce something asap and get the hype, anticipation going now, what you all think.

Hoping a Tom Hanks will be in it!?

I also think he will cast : And percentage of he will cast that specific actor

Kevin Costner : 98%
Al Pacino : 88%
Tim Robins : 87%
Denzel Washington : 96%
Sean Connery : 77%
Morgan Freeman : 98%
Robert De Nero : 95%
Johnny Depp : 99% ( He wanted to cast him in TH VILLAGE or SIGNs )
Tommy Lee Jones : 56%
George Clooney (hope Not) 35%

These my guess and the percentages means, how much I think he wants that specific actor in his movie.

Hey guys,

I guess "MAYA" is right. Lets guess some females this time. But we all chose males cause all the time M.Night casted some dominant male actors as the main leads in each movie he directed till date.

MY GUESS from females.

1- Drew Barrymore : I just wish he casts her in his next film, she is so cute and adorable. Plus sometimes I think, she would be perfect for 'LADY' as well.

2- Myrell Streep
3- Charleze Theron

That's all I can guess guys.

Im hoping for someone like .. Hanks or Cage, think they are great actors who
can play any role, especially Hanks.
Anybody else heard anything else on the Next Project grapevine, keep these posts going!

Hey guys, I am searching all the time regarding M.Night's next, even if I find an small news regarding his next venture, I will just go ahead and post it here. First I wonder what would be its title?

Well he said in the west Australian interview (or was it the empire one?) that his next idea is really clear, that there isnt much 'questioning' in his mind.  So it sounds like it'll be a smooth process in terms of writing, which is a great sign.

I also think that he'll create a movie thats more like Signs in nature, in that it will appeal more to the masses than Lady.  It sounds like it will be very suspensefull/thrilling.

i kinda hope johnny depp's going to be in it or even nicholas cage

That's really cool you are very enthusiastic about something new from Night, even the last one is still showing in theaters around the world.

Actually i don't expect a specific "genre" of movie from Night himself, as he never did such a thing before. He is a genre-free guy, and we all like this side of him, so if he tries to fit himself into a box (a genre) i don't think it would be so good. As an example, "Signs" was kinda sci-fi, but it was not pure sci-fi. Sci-fi was a tool for him to tell a story, and come to a conclusion. He does this pretty good, he wants to give a message and forms it around the story, but in the end we see, all the story was a tool to give this special message. And you never feel betrayed about it (i don't :) ) I think this is what makes Night unique.

Hope the next one would be a killer.

I just want him to make a movie with a star he hasnt worked with yet... He use Pheonix, Bruce Willis and Bryce Dallas Howard as well... Someone like Depp would be awesome cuz he's kinda freaky already and with Night being the director hell ya it would be awesome. But then I wouldnt be disapointed with any actor I just want to know what its gonna be about and cant wait for the trailer to come to....

I think Clint is focusing more on his directing work these days, however, I would LOVE to see him in an M.Night film.

Yeah, I think Clint and Night would be a good pair. He's already directed a director (Gibson)
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: Dr Malcolm Crowe on November 30, 2006, 06:40:28 PM
actually, I think that Mel Gibson wasn't Nights first choice for Signs, I heard it was Clint Eastwood, then Paul Newman. Anyone else remember hearing this?
Title: Nights Next Movie!
Post by: Rohan on December 01, 2006, 04:28:51 AM
I think you are right, I heard that somewhere that in fact Night wanted to cast EASTWOOD for signs. Mel pulled out the role perfectly as well. I can't wait now for the next story he is working right now.

Anyone heard anything about it. And any ideas when he is starting the shooting. I think he will work the whole 2007 on his next and release the film 2008 summer that's what I think. He usually takes break for a year to gather his mind and heart on one project, as the perfectionist he is.

i hope and think that Jim Caviezel would be a good choice for M.Night Shyamalan's next film. If not other good choices i would like to see in the starring role include Denzel Washington, Paul Newman or Naomi Watts.

whenever the next one is released, i just hope it isn't on the hottest day of the year again.  after leaving the theatre from seeing Lady (awesome movie!!!) i was struck with the immense heat.  walking from the theatre on 6th Ave (downtown seattle) to Pike Place Market I ended up with heat exhaustian and almost passed out.  ....actually, the only good thing about that day was getting to see Lady in the Water..

I wonder what this next one'll be like.  I know whoever Night chooses to be in it will be great, same goes with whatever it'll be about.  :D

Hi Maya, the heat was that powerful? Why you didn't drive?
There are like two movie theatres close to my home, I am like in the between. Sometimes I hardly choose one to watch a movie. :-)

But it worth it as you said "watching Lady In The Water".
