More M. Night News "Green Planet"

Post by thirdeyeh » Tue Jan 23, 2007 11:03 am

It looks like Night does have an original script out there. This is the article from www.mnightfans.com

M. Night Shyamalan's Green Planet?
Posted to category: M. Night Shyamalan on 22 Jan 2007 by Specter
On Tuesday Jan 16, M. Night went out to the town with a new original script, or spec entitled GREEN PLANET. So far, Universal, Paramount, Warner Brothers and Sony have all passed.
Not much is known about GREEN PLANET. The Night story, insiders say, centers on an alien invasion of earth carried out using Nature's flora and fauna.

Sources also say that so far only Fox was intrigued, but even then was demanding substantial rewrites, something Night is usually unwilling to do.

Now, because it wasn't purchased in the first round, that doesn't neccessarily mean that GREEN PLANET won't find a home. Many scripts don't sell first round out but what makes this interesting is that this is M. Night Shyamalan. He dominated the spec script world with everything he put out. His scripts would only be on the market 24-48 hours!
Even if GREEN PLANET isn't purchased we still have Avatar: The Last Airbender to look forward to.

Shyamalan to rewrite "Green" and cements "Avatar"


Variety reports that when writer/director M. Night Shyamalan traveled from Philadelphia to Hollywood recently to cement his plan to turn the cartoon "Avatar: The Last Airbender" into a live-action film for Paramount, he and his new CAA representatives showed several studios a new script he's written.

Called The Green Effect, the film is about a large-scale, cataclysmic environmental crisis that turns into a struggle by mankind to overcome nature.

The unveiling of the script did not immediately create a green effect for Shyamalan, adds the trade, as no studio liked it enough to take it off the table. Studios are understandably wary, since Shyamalan is coming off the first failure of his career, Lady in the Water.

Shyamalan walked away from his round of meetings with ideas and notes and has gone home to do a rewrite. He will return within a month, armed with a script that will bear a new title, along with a cast and budget.

If the revamp scores Shyamalan a deal, he'll likely make the film before the "Avatar" pic.
