There’s nothing we want more than for director M.Night Shyamalan to get his groove back. We’ve been burnt bad with his last few films. We reported previously that he seemed to have taken a hiatus back to his home town where he is working on a solo project called labour of love. This is a smaller scale film in which Shyamalan will team up with Bruce Willis again. Read more on this project here.
Today though we received news that Shyamalan will be bringing his TV show to the silver screen soon, called Wayward Pines The show’s first trailer reveals a very Twin Peaks-esque vibe, telling the story of a federal agent who visits a small town to try to track down some missing fellow agents, but encounters some push-back from the local community. It has that small town freaky-feeling and we are very impressed! Is this his return to greatness?
Matt Dillon, Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard, Carla Gugino, Toby Jones, and Juliette Lewis star, and the show premieres on May 14th, 2015.
