Do you feel a little more fabulous today than you did yesterday? Perhaps it’s because a Hollywood superstar has graced our city with his presence.
Director and Episcopal Academy alum M. Night Shyamalan took to Twitter on Wednesday to announce that his next movie, which will naturally be set in the Philly area, is a sequel to last year’s well-received psychological thriller Split and his criminally underrated 2000 pseudo-superhero flick, Unbreakable.

After rather surprisingly stellar ratings last summer, M. Night Shyamalan‘s television debut, Wayward Pines, has been picked up by Fox for a 10-episode second season.
The first season of the psychological drama starred Matt Dillon, who, without giving any spoiler alerts, awoke one afternoon in a bizarre town and spent his days figuring out where he was, who the strange people around him were and — most importantly — how to get the hell out of there. There were monsters, creepy school kids and lots and lots of cliffhangers. Deadline reports that the second season will pick up where season 1 left off, “when a new arrival in Wayward Pines finds himself in the middle of a serious rebellion, as the residents battle over how to preserve the endangered human race.”
The chattering classes have been whispering about M. Night Shyamalan‘s next project for a while, but with little to go on except that he’s working with a local casting agency and shooting it in Philly, and that it will star X-Men: Days of Future Past star James McAvoy. Today, we’re learning a lot more with Deadline breaking news that the film will be called Split and it has a release date: January 20, 2017.

M. Night Shyamalan is sitting in an unfurnished dining room in Chester Springs, thinking about where the bodies will go. The house is someone’s recent heartbreak, a foreclosure situation; the bank owns it now. There may not be ghosts present, but there are certainly bitter vibes here in the winter gloaming. Shyamalan, who is renting the place for the next six months, isn’t thinking about the past, though. He’s busy conjuring up future phantoms.
