Joaquin Phoenix and M. Night Shamalyan Re-team for New Film

phoenixJoaquin Phoenix will re-team with his Signs director M. Night Shyamalan for an untitled project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. They also confirm Shyamalan will direct the picture, produced by Jason Blumhouse, whose Blumhouse Productions brought us such films as the Insidious series, Oculus, and award-darling Whiplash (perhaps the scariest of the lot).

The project is said to be “supernatural in on a more modest scale.” Shyamalan already directed September 11th’s The Visit for Blumhouse and should be accustomed to the tighter budgets the producer likes to work with. The Visit is itself a found footage movie in which a single mother finds that things in her family’s life go very wrong after her two young children visit their grandparents.

It is unclear if the new film also be found footage or Shyamalan’s more traditional mode.
