Knock at the hut It’s slated to hit theaters on February 3, and Shyamalan previously told ComicBook.com that the script is the fastest he’s ever written.
“Let me tell you this: Oddly enough, it was the fastest screenplay I’ve ever written. sign would have had that title before Knock at the hut,” Shyamalan said. “I think probably, in terms of both of them, they have this movement, this event that makes me write it really fast. Hopefully viewers will feel that when they come to see it. It’s definitely in the wheelhouse of things you’re seeing from me now, especially with servantthis limited and gigantic event that is taking place.”
Very little is known about this at the moment Knock at the hut apart from its cast. It stars Dave Bautista, Rupert Grint, Jonathan Groff, Ben Aldridge and Nikki Amuka-Bird. Shyamalan previously spoke about why he chose Bautista for the film, citing the actor’s brief scene in Bladerunner 2049.
“I was really impressed by what Denis [Villeneuve] and Dave did it in that scene Bladerunner,” Shyamalan said. “He was still in a way that was powerful. There’s a kind of stillness where you don’t do anything; You do everything and you are silent. Your essence of what you think comes from your body. I always tell actors I can definitely shoot you guys in the back. If you look at the back of Heath Ledger at the beginning The dark knight, the second I saw his back I was like, ‘I’m watching one of the greatest performances of all time.’ I could only tell by the way he was standing. Every cell in your body will do what it’s supposed to do if you think something right. So don’t just be blank. You have to think that.”
Knock at the hut is currently slated to hit theaters on February 3, 2023.
