M. Night Shyamalan - Page 2

post #51 of 59

Yep!  He's making movies he should be making.  

 

Gotta give him credit.  He financed The Visit on his own dime and that paid off quite a bit.

I thought THE VISIT was a Blumhouse production (in that it was made according to Blumhouse's business model).

 

Did M. Night put more of his own money to bump up the budget from that?

Blumhouse came in later to release and tweak the film, but he financed the 5M himself and shot it in 30 days.

 

Filmed In 30 Days: According to Business Insider, Shyamalan filmed "The Visit," in 30 days with a $5 million budget and 25 crew members. He wanted to shoot the movie fast, just as he directed the pilot episode of Fox's "Wayward Pines." "'Wayward Pines' really gave me a sense of how to shoot fast and with a kind of leaner, tighter mentality because that’s what TV demands,” he said. Shyamalan also personally financed the $5 million for the movie himself.

I didn't see The Visit. I've heard some really good stuff about that and Split though.

 

I'm ready to let Shyamalan back into my heart. I can't resist a tale of someone destroying their career and slowly clawing their way back by actually making good stuff again.

Having had my Shamamamalayan fire rekindled by The Visit, I'm actually quite looking forward to Split. Been hearing good things about it.

You should.  It's a nice little comeback for him.  Really can't wait for Split

So true.  He made some horrible choices, but he's seems to realize his sweet spot again.
