The plot for the horror sounds very, very creepy...
M. Night Shyamalan is producing a new horror movie set in the west of Ireland.
Deadline reports that the filmmaker's daughter, Ishana Night Shyamalan, will direct The Watchers which will be adapted from the debut novel of the same name by Irish author A.M. Shine.
The film will follow a 28-year-old artist named Nina as she gets stranded in an "extensive, immaculate forest in western Ireland".
"After finding shelter, she becomes trapped alongside three strangers, stalked by mysterious creatures each night," the plot synopsis reads.
Deadline states that Ishana Night Shyamalan wrote the screenplay for the adaptation and that her father will produce the movie.
The outlet also reports that there is a lot of excitement around the horror which will begin filming later this year and is being fast-tracked for a 7 June 2024 global theatrical release.
Ishana Night Shyamalan and M. Night Shyamalan both confirmed their involvement in the project on social media.
