M. Night Shyamalan has completed a script for a new film and already has some stars lined up, reports Heat Vision.
Outside of a “loosely attached” cast that includes Bruce Willis, Bradley Cooper and Gwyneth Paltrow, almost nothing is known about the project. Shyamalan is reportedly shopping the script to various studios with his trademark secrecy, offering reads to only to highest level executives with a personal assistant on hand at all times to take the script back once the read is completed.
UPDATE #1: Deadline has some more info on the project:
I’m told Bradley Cooper would play a father on a desperate search for his missing child. It might stray into Taken terrain, but the father taps into some supernatural powers to aid the search.
UPDATE #2: Shyamalan told Philly.com that Bradley Cooper probably won’t be able to do this film:
“‘Hangover 2,’ ” lamented Shyamalan. “I don’t think Bradley can do it because of that.”
Cooper is from Abington, Willis from South Jersey and Paltrow has extended family ties to the area. Is the Chesco-based Shyamalan up to something?
“It does sound like regional theater. But that’s all coincidence. Bradley is a Philly boy, we see each other a lot, and we’ve become friends, and obviously I’ve worked with Bruce a lot. But Gwyneth, she’s just a great actress, that’s why I’d be interested.”
