"M. Night Shyamalan and Media Rights Capital have formalized the first project in their three-picture deal to hatch fright films," according to Variety. The article continues, "Brian Nelson ("30 Days of Night") is set to write the first project, "DEVIL" which "QUARANTINE" helmer John Erick Dowdle will direct and produce with his brother, Drew Dowdle. The supernatural thriller is based on an original story by Shyamalan, who’ll produce with Sam Mercer under the Night Chronicles banner. The Dowdle siblings will be executive producers. The PG-13 film will begin production next year. MRC set the Night Chronicles as a financing and production partnership with Shyamalan in July. The company’s goal is to generate one genre film per year over three years, with Shyamalan hatching the ideas and overseeing the selection of talent and the creative direction. Shyamalan will co-own the film copyrights and retain artistic control while MRC makes distribution deals, as it does on all the pictures it finances." More on the original Variety post HERE!
