Wait a minute, do they already have the script written for the Avatar trilogy, or is that jammed up because of the strike.

Shouldn't be. Night wrote it.

They say this one has a surprise ending.

alright i know i'm new here, but i just wanted to chime in.....basically you guys have a point that yeah directors do flops, i don't think i've ever heard of a director never making one bad movie. but after the sixth sense, unbreakable, and signs, 3 amazing movies back to back, and all of his movies being marketed around his name, if he does make movies that the general public doesn't like as much (both the village and lady in the water i loved to death!), then you can lose your credibility with average movie goers faster than anything.  so yeah i'm a little worried that the happening might not do as well because people might just not be in to night anymore. i really hope it does blow up because i would flip out if he wasn't able to sell a script again.

There is no telling whether or not the final script was written. I know that Night had completed a detailed outline for the movie, but I doubt he's got a shooting draft of the script done.

So I am willing to bet that the script is being halted due to the strike. That's probably why they are casting and scouting locations.

That would make sense about the lcoation scouting and casting.  I guess that could put the planned release date farther back though.

The Happening is a movie made entirely by M.Night,don't forget it (except some producers,of course).He's always done what he wanted to do,so far.I think this movie will be just like the others for some reasons: it will make you feel that sense of magic and mystery applied to the real life that is typical of ALL his movies.At least,this is what I hope ;)
And,as someone already said,the greatest power he's got is the originality,a little thing Hollywood is losing.

Yea, that's true about the originality and Hollywood, which is too bad.  I think the Avatar trilogy will have a distinct Shyamalan feel.

I mean, I'm also certainly hoping it will have that unique feel.  The Avatar trilogy takes place on this earth right.

Oh, yea, that could be great.  You could film in regular places, but then have it slightly different than this earth to give it a slightly more magical, I hate using that word in this situation, but different feel.

I have mixed feelings about whether The Happening will be successful or not.  I read an early version of the script and thought the first 60 pages are good.  the last 40 were very linear.  I am hoping that later rewrites improved Act 3 to be less linear and more exciting.

then i saw the trailer and think it's very good marketing..

so, i'm torn, but i'm still very excited.

I haven't seen the trailer, so I can't comment about that.  Also, I have only read reviews of the script, so again I can't comment on that.  My gut feeling though tells me that it will be a succes.

I think it could go either way. For it to be a success, it will need critical acclaim and word of mouth like Signs and The Sixth Sense...NOT like like Lady in the Water. :-\
