Night Shyamalan, the renowned Hollywood film director whose roots
can be traced back to Kerala, is ready with his next venture
produced at a cost of 57 million dollars. Named The
Happening, it will be released this June. This sci-fi thriller
is produced by UTV Motion Pictures and 20th Century Fox. The
Happening will make its world-wide release on June 13th.
Shyamalan, addressing the media in Mumbai, said that the sci-fi
movie was not planned, it just happened and is unlike his favourite
genre of horror. He added that good scripts and story-telling are
the key to success in Hollywood.
Shyamalan was born in Mahe, Kerala, in 1970. His parents moved
to the US soon after his birth and Shyamalan is living there ever
since. He rose to fame through his film Sixth Sense and
continued his success with Signs. But his next ventures
The village and Lady in the Water failed to
impress critics and the public alike.
