In his latest twist, writer/director M. Night Shyamalan – a man once touted as “the new Spielberg” – is working on a television mini-series titled Wayward Pines. Although critics and audiences panned his newest films (After Earth, The Last Airbender), the small screen offers Shyamalan a chance to retrieve some artistic credibility. For those already weary of the show’s quality, the Sixth Sense director is only helming the pilot episode of the 10-episode Fox mini-series (his main job is as the executive producer), and he did not write the episode’s screenplay, so you can rest easy.
Entertainment Weekly got an early look at the thriller starring Matt Dillon, Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard and Juliette Lewis, and in an interview with the magazine, Shyamalan revealed a passion to try something new and move to television.
