M. Night Shyamalan Teases After Earth Pre-Production Photos


M. Night Shyamalan is currently in pre-production on his latest, After Earth, which is set to star Will Smith alongside his son, Jaden. Shyamalan has been busy scouting locations for the project and, over the past week, has tweeted a few behind-the-scenes photos that should give fans a very, very early tease of what to expect when the film hits theaters on June 7, 2013.

Set 1,000 years into the future, the film (formerly titled One Thousand A.E) features a young boy who navigates an abandoned and sometimes scary Earth to save himself and his estranged father after their ship crashes.

Written by Shyamalan, Gary Whitta and Stephen Gaghan, After Earth is planning to shoot in March.
