Knock at the Cabin is written and being directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who most recently helmed Universal’s thriller drama Old, which earned a worldwide gross of over $90 million. The new project is produced by Shyamalan and Ashwin Rajan through their Blinding Edge Pictures banner along with Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider.
The project will be led by Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3), Harry Potter vet Rupert Grint, Avenue 5 star Nikki Amuka-Bird, Jonathan Groff (The Matrix Resurrections), and Ben Aldridge (Fleabag).

Knock at the Cabin marks the latest collaboration between Shyamalan and the studio, who have previously worked on Glass, Split, and The Visit. Shyamalan’s high-concept content has consistently captured the attention of audiences around the world for nearly two decades, having amassed more than $3.3 billion worldwide. However, not all of his films had received positive feedback as some of his works earned negative reviews from critics and audiences alike including 2006’s Lady in the Water, 2013’s The Happening, 2010’s The Last Airbender, and 2013’s After Earth.
