M. Night has been a downward spiral over the last several years and hasn’t directed anything since After Earth in early 2013 which was a major box-office flop. M. Night is one of those directors that you either love or you hate.. there’s hardly anyone in between, well except for me. I love his earlier works, even The Village, and I do have faith that he can still make a great movie… I just think he’s a little lost. Here’s to hoping he regains his spark that sets him apart from others with his newest film in the making entitled “The Visit.”
M. Night’s been keeping details on his film very secretive and not a whole lot is known about it. The plot is as follows:
“The Visit focuses on a brother and sister who are sent to their grandparents’ remote Pennsylvania farm for a week long trip. Once the children discover that the elderly couple is involved in something deeply disturbing, they see their chances of getting back home are growing smaller every day.”
I, for one, am quite intrigued by this because I think M. Night prevails at suspense and thriller dramas rather than the action films he’s been releasing. A release date for The Visit was just set for September 15th, 2015 which seems like an eternity from now, but hopefully it’ll be worth the wait.
On IMDb it is listed as a Horror/Comedy but M. Night has also tweeted he had done a great deal of editing and now the film seems more like a ‘scary thriller.’
The Visit will star Kathryn Hahn, Ed Oxenbould, Erica Lynne Marszalek, Peter McRobbie, Olivia DeJonge, Deanna Dunagan, Benjamin Kanes, Jon Douglas Rainey, Brian Gildea, Shawn Gonzalez, Richard Barlow, Steve Annan, and Michael Mariano.
