a new M. Night Shyamalan movie is coming to theaters in two years, as Universal gives the self-titled thriller a 2024 release date. Thanks to its twisted directorial breakout film in The Sixth Sense, expectations have always been high for what would be the next Shyamalan movie spin. After initially managing to largely live up to these expectations, his career became a bit shaky after a rough patch including The event, The Last Airbenderand after earth. In recent years, Shyamalan has started to give shape again, such as films like Divide and Old gave audiences reasons to be excited about the next M. Night Shyamalan movie.
In addition to working on his original Apple TV+ show Servant, the director has worked closely with Universal Pictures in recent years to bring new films to theaters. This included closing a deal with Universal to release two new films by 2023. The first film from this deal was 2021 Old, which was heavily delayed due to COVID-19. Shyamalan is currently working on his second feature film from that deal, Knock on the hutan adaptation of the apocalyptic horror book The cabin at the end of the world. It stars Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, Rupert Grint and more and hits theaters in February.
As shared by Deadline, Universal Pictures has now announced that the studio’s partnership with M. Night Shyamalan will continue. A new Shyamalan film has been officially added to the studio’s release calendar for April 5, 2024.

Night Shyamalan film to be distributed by Universal. The new Shyamalan thriller movie hits theaters 14 months later Knock on the hut.
M. Night Shyamalan’s New Thriller Is A Good Sign For Knock At The Cabin
There may not be many details about Shyamalan’s new movie, but it seems to be a good sign for it Knock on the hut. Universal’s two-picture deal with Shyamalan ended with: Knock on the hut, so they didn’t have to expand the partnership with another film. Hopefully that means giving the new movie a release date is a sign of confidence from Universal in Knock on the hut‘s quality. There’s also a chance that the new film will continue the filmmaker’s trend of adapting existing material rather than coming up with original ideas.
as the first Knock on the hut trailer is any indication, Shyamalan could be on the cusp of once again showing Hollywood and the public what kind of horror movies he can deliver. This would allow Shyamalan’s renaissance to get back on track. After delivering well-received thrillers in The visitors and Dividehis last two films were not so positively received. Knock on the hut has the ingredients to reverse and make things shyamalan‘s new movie from 2024 one of the most anticipated movies of the year.
