As usual, M. Night Shyamalan’s latest film is being made under a veil of secrecy, but we do now know who’s starring in it.

Variety reports that the cast will be headed by Nat Wolff (pictured, from HEREDITARY and MY FRIEND DAHMER), Eliza Scanlen (LITTLE WOMEN), Thomasin McKenzie (JOJO RABBIT), Aaron Pierre and Vicky Krieps. Shyamalan will write, direct and produce the movie, which is currently untitled, for Universal Pictures; plans are to begin shooting by the end of the year, depending on the state of the coronavirus pandemic. The trade also noted that this project may become interconnected with Shyamalan’s other films; the genre auteur recently wrapped shooting on the second season of his Apple TV Plus series SERVANT.
