So we all know Shyamalan likes to work with the same actors multiple times right? Overlooking obvious choices like Paul Giamatti, and Bryce Dallas Howard, I thought of the one person that Night absolutely needs to try to work with again....

William Hurt!

I loved him in The Village, he might be my favorite part of that whole movie.

 :D

OMG, i totally agree!  Him, and i think even Adrien Brody.  Other people, I think maybe Denzel Washington or Johnny Depp...

i'm also thinking johnny depp, because they said it was a big name actor.  to me he's the only actor in hollywood that could make a lot of the public watch a movie just cause he's in it.  i can't think of anyone else that currently has that star power...plus it would be AWESOME because he's just amazing in every role he plays!
OH MY GOD...i was at a placebo concert last night and i was second row standing right in front of brian...then i got steve's drumstick!  HELL YEAH!!!

I agree, Johnny Depp does have the most pull out of any actor right now. Plus, he's absolutely brilliant! But I think 'big star' does cover a lot of people like:

Denzel Washington
Brad Pitt
Leonardo DiCaprio
Matt Damon
Tom Hanks
Tom Cruise
Bruce Willis
Sam Jackson
Morgan Freeman
Mel Gibson
Will Smith
George Clooney


I think we're looking for somebody younger, or who could play younger, for the lead. Leo? Damon? Depp? Smith? hmmmm

This is so much fun! hahaha!:lol:  I still want William Hurt to work with Night again!  :D

well , as the first actor...I really think Jamie Foxx would be awesome. with paul giamatti. Don't want to see a big actor like Tom Hanks or Tom Cruise or another one big like these.

Doesnt sound like a Night movie..

Currently, my top two picks would be Christian Bale or Johnny Depp (or both).  :D

I think they're both busy. Depp is working on Sweeny Todd with Tim Burton, then Shantaram with Mira Nair (also an Indian director.)

Christian Bale is working on The Dark Knight (Batman Begins sequel) for WB and director Chris Nolan. That will be released Summer 2008 as well.

As much as I would love to see those two work in a Night movie, I must face the reality that it probably can't be this one.

Mark Wahlberg is Happening...?
« Reply #9 on: March 14, 2007, 01:14:21 PM »
As you might have read on our front page, Mark Wahlberg is in talks to star as the films lead character.

Sounds pretty good to me. He was excellent in The Departed (which earned him a best supporting actor Oscar nomination.)

Hhhmmm...It's true that you are the winner(for now anyways).  That means you need a prize.  I'll think about a good one.

Seriously, this is terrible news.  I don't like this guy in movies, I especially won't like him in a Shyamalan movie.
