Man o man o man.  This is great news.  Now we get to see Night's ideas, but we won't have to wait a while for them.  I think it's good.  I was talking with some friends, and they think it shows maturity on Night's part, still his ideas, but other people getting a crack at them.  I think it will work.  By the way, does anybody know when they start.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

This is pure speculation, but I say the first movie will probably come out 2010. Night has an idea, but he doesn't have writer and director to start on it.

Now people will crave for his work. The hard part is that I can't wait for those ideas.

Quarantine Duo Tapped for Shyamalan's Night Chronicles

Quote
While the man definitely incites raucous opinion of his work, M. Night Shyamalan will probably find a happy consensus around news that his trio of thrillers titled Night Chronicles are officially off and running. Shortly after The Happening hit theaters, it was announced that his next project would be a series of movies for which he would create the central premise, and then pass the idea off to suitable writers and directors; that news probably couldn't have come at a better time, considering the vitriol that surrounded The Happening (18% on Rotten Tomatoes). Word from Bloody Disgusting is that they've found adoptive parents for the first film - the guys behind the recently released Quarantine, John and Drew Dowdle.

Quarantine was a solidly kick ass film, so on the surface, having the Dowdles involved with the start to Night Chronicles is great news. We don't actually know much about the first film at present, save for the it will be set in Philadelphia where Shyamalan lives and works. Considering that many have nearly relegated Shyamalan to hack - an opinion I certainly don't share - serving as the idea-guy seems like a good fit. Obviously the guy beams creative moxie, but his execution can be a tad dicey. And while I've yet to see the The Poughkeepsie Tapes, which is the only other project to the Dowdles' name, I think the duo definitely has promise. As young filmmakers in this space, could you really hope for a better mentor?

As Shyamalan said earlier this year: "Filmmakers have always been my inspiration. Working with the next wave of innovative filmmakers will teach me many things that I can bring to my own writing/directing and give my stories the opportunity to be brought to the screen in a stunning way." This trio of thrillers is definitely going to be the new gem of the genre, which I intend to track with eager anticipation.

I don't watch horror films, but I did hear good things about Quarintine, I'm just excited that Night's gotten the ball rolling on the whole Chronicles thing.
