Title, poster and details revealed for M Night Shyamalan’s new movie

September 26th, 2020 by Marc Comments

Ooooooooooh… M Night Shyamalan is back making a new movie!

The director has revealed on social media (below) that he has started filming his new movie and he seems, in the time of that damned virus, to genuinely be happy to be back working. And we are too.

The movie will be called Old and he has given us the poster (above) which has bodies falling down through an hourglass (it’s not subtle)/ It’s also now known it will hit our screens on July 23rd, 2021.

Excitingly, it is based on Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters’ graphic novel Sandcastle about a group of people who cannot escape a mysterious beach because time won’t let them after they find a dead body.

The cast includes Eliza Scanlen (Little Women), Thomasin McKenzie (True History of the Kelly Gang), Aaron Pierce (Krypton), Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread), Alex Wolff (Hereditary), Abbey Lee (Lovecraft Country, Mad Max: Fury Road, The Dark Tower), Nikki Amuka-Bird (Avenue 5, Gold Digger, Jupiter Ascending), Gael García Bernal (Mozart in the Jungle) and Ken Leung (Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens, Inhumans, The Blacklist).

The project is written, directed, and produced by Shyamalan.

Shyamalan’s most recent output has felt like a proper return to form with Glass, Split and The Visit all hitting the mark for me, personally, so I’m excited for this.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, with everything that’s happening right now, 2021 is going to be a hell of a year for movies.

Any Shyamalan fans in the house? Let me hear your thoughts, gang.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
