According to Deadline, Shyamalan is in negotiations to reunite with Joaquin Phoenix for a new film set in the director’s hometown of Philadelphia. Phoenix has worked alongside Shyamalan twice before, starring in 2002’s Signs and 2004’s The Village.
Details on the new film are being closely guarded, but Deadline reports that it’ll have a low budget similar to The Visit ($5 million), and will begin production in November.
Jason Bloom (Paranormal Activity, The Purge, Insidious) is on board to produce.
Below, watch the trailer for The Visit, out in theaters on September 11th.
