'The Departed' and 'The Sixth Sense' were good and all, but we don't know about this
The Hollywood Reporter lays down the facts on two things that really divide us here at The Juice*: A) Mark Wahlberg has a new job, and B) M. Night Shyamalan is making a new movie. We can’t decide if either fact is good or bad, and what makes it worse is that they’re related. The Happening, a $57-million pic about a family running from an apocalyptic threat — Wahlberg being nominated for an Oscar, perhaps — stars Marky Mark as a (snicker) science teacher.
This will mark Shyamalan’s first venture with Fox, since Warner Bros. dropped him like a hot potato after 2006’s The Lady in the Water bombed. Production begins in August in (where else?) Philadelphia, for a release date of Friday, June 13, 2008. We’ll wake you then.
