M. Night Shyamalan Says Working On His Daughter’s Upcoming Directorial Debut THE WATCHERS “Changed Him As a Director” — GeekTyrant

Director M. Night Shyamalan is best known for his mysterious thrillers like The Sixth Sense, Signs, The Village, and Split, but it was his work on his daughter’s directorial debut releasing this week, the horror mystery The Watchers, that he says “changed him as a director.”

In an interview with GamesRadar, Shyamalan said of working on his daughter, Ishana Night Shyamalan’s film:

“It’s the same job I’ve done my whole life but with a different intention. I have to deliver for [Ishana]. It’s not something I came up; it’s something she came up with. That created a different engine for me, when I was directing those scenes for her. I almost became a student again from the beginning. Which is the dream – that you start to see it as new [again]. It changed me as director for myself, for my new film.” 

His new film is Trap, a thriller starring Josh Hartnett as a dad taking his daughter to a concert. The event is being used by the police as a trap to lure out a vicious serial killer, and we can surely expect some major twists and turns.

As for The Watchers, the story is based on the book by A.M. Shine, and the story follows Mina (Dakota Fanning) as she becomes stranded in a dense Irish woodland without any power. Coming across a curious cabin inhabited by other stranded souls, Mina learns of the existence of The Watchers.

The strange creatures leave the people in the cabin alone as long as they stay in the woods, abide by their rules, and allow themselves to be observed each night. Ishana Night Shymalan directs from a screenplay she penned. 

The Watchers is set to be released in theatres on June 7th. Trap will hit theatres later this the summer, on August 9th.
