Writer/director M. Night Shyamalan has not had the best run of films lately with flops such as Lady in the Water, After Earth, and The Last Airbender. His current film seems to be a return to form for him. The Visit is generally well received by critics and audiences and it has done well at the box office for a horror film.
Universal Pictures has announced that Shyamalan’s new film titled Split will hit theaters on January 20, 2017. The film is said to be a follow up to The Visit. The Visit doesn’t feel like a film that needs a sequel but when something makes money you know what happens these days. We can only hope that Shyamalan does in fact have his mojo back.
Split will star James MacAvoy (X-Men First Class) and Anya Taylor Joy.
