In a baseball game it’s one strike, two strikes, three strikes, you’re out, and normally the same strike rule applies for people. However, filmmaker, M. Night Shyamalan seems to have defied this rule over and over again. Comingsoon.net reports that Shyamala-ding-dong has yet another film in the works.
Shyamalan is currently developing a new sci-fi project, One Thousand A.E., for Overbrook Entertainment. Overbrook Entertainment is the production company run by Will Smith, James Lassiter, Ken Stovitz and Smith’s wife, Jada Pinkett Smith. The film is set to be a lead role for the Smiths’ son, Jaden.
It’s been ten years since Shyamalan directed The Sixth Sense, arguably his only worthy film. In the past ten years he has been consistently releasing terrible films that always bomb at the box office and get annihilated by critics. His most recent, Devil, was no exception, it barely got 50% on the RottenTomatoes meter. One Thousand A.E., surely will be no different….a piece of shit.
With the involvement of the Smith Family, you never know if some sort of Scientology element will be involved. Maybe Tom Cruise will sign on to the project too, then it will be pure gold.
Honestly, how many more chances will Shyamalan get?
