The words “new M. Night Shyamalan movie” have taken on a newer, hackier connotation of late, but that apparently hasn’t stopped stars like two-time-Shyamalan-crony Bruce Willis, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Bradley Cooper from eyein’ the director’s lemon drink, with all three “loosely attached” to star in Shyamalan’s next top-secret project, according to Heat Vision. Not much else is known about the prospective film (though we’re guessing it’s not an Unbreakable sequel), owing to Shyamalan’s legendary secretiveness: Only the top studio executives have been allowed to read the script, and then only under the close supervision of one of Shyamalan’s assistants, who immediately took the script back as soon as they were done. We’re guessing that said studio execs, “loosely attached” stars or no, will wait to see what sort of business The Last Airbender does first before handing over another bundle of money to the guy who did this.
