From comingsoon.net:

Shyamalan's Script is Happening at Fox
Source: Variety March 7, 2007


20th Century Fox has given the green light to M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening, a spec script thriller that Shyamalan wrote and will direct in Philadelphia this August. Variety says Fox is targeting a June, 2008 release for the film.

Shyamalan will produce with Sam Mercer. He also reunites with Munich producer Barry Mendel, who produced the Shyamalan-directed The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable.

The film, previously known as "The Green Effect," will mark Shyamalan's first R-rated effort, is a paranoid thriller about a family on the run from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity.

The movie is expected to carry a budget of around $57 million, and Shyamalan expects to cast a big male star for the lead.

Shyamalan will prepare and shoot The Happening as he continues to write the script for Avatar: The Last Airbender. Shyamalan will follow with that live action film for Paramount.

Absolutely great news.
Shyamalan wants to make his first R rated film... The Village was a hard PG-13, IMO.  
It'll be tense. Wow.
He's not giving up.  :D

Maybe it's just me, but, all things considered, a year doesn't really seem that long to wait.  Either way, I'm excited!

in the US, that means only people over the age of 17 are admitted, unless accompanied by a legal guardian.

It also means you'll most likely see blood, violence, and bad language (hopefully no sex).  Yeah, I'm all for Night expanding his horizons, but I'm kind of disappointed (like Legolas) in the R rating.  Part of the reason why I admired Night so much was due to his shying away from objectionable material and keeping it "clean."  I'm afraid this movie will be far from it.  Anyway, I'm a Shyamalan fan so if he wants to go R, more power to him!  Here's hoping to a return to form in story, positive critical consensus, and mass reaction.  I didn't like "Lady," so the only place he can go for me is up.  Finally, I also do not like the title, ?The Happening.?  I?m sure it?ll grow on me, but as of yet it sounds too?I can?t explain it.  Wasn?t one of the Signs taglines ?It?s happening??
