Finally overcoming a multi-film slump, M. Night Shyamalan‘s The Visit found him returning to his days of a more modest budget and it earned him mostly favorable reviews. Working with producer Jason Blum, the $5 million horror-thriller is approaching the $90 million mark worldwide, so it’s no surprise they are reteaming for the Unbreakable director’s next film.

With a cast of James McAvoy (replacing Joaquin Phoenix), The Witch‘s Anya Taylor-Joy and Betty Buckley (The Happening) in the lead roles, Jessica Sula (Skins) and Haley Lu Richardson (The Bronze) fill out the rest of the ensemble, according to Variety. There’s no plot details yet for the thriller also scripted by Shyamalan, but a few new announcements have us mightily intrigued. See the director’s tweets below.

Considering the dread Mike Gioulakis was able to conjure in It Follows and similarly, Mara LePere-Schloop‘s work on True Detective, we sincerely hope this one won’t be found-footage like the director’s last project. As we await Shyalaman’s next feature, check out our discussion of his career and The Visit here or below.
