M. Night Shyamalan is directing (but NOT writing) another movie

M. Night Shyamalan's next movie is something called One Thousand A.E. No, it's probably not a sequel to Titan A.E., but few know exactly what it is—only that he's developing it with Will Smith's company as a starring vehicle for Jaden Smith, it's science fiction, and it's shrouded in secrecy.

Oh, and there's one other thing we know: For the first time, Shyamalan isn't writing the screenplay himself. Instead, One Thousand A.E. is coming from Gary Whitta, who wrote Denzel Washington's post-apocalyptic action flick The Book of Eli.

That in itself is a cause for celebration, as Shyamalan's writing has devolved, since The Sixth Sense, into a sort of portentous, gimmick-laden drone. Perhaps some fresh blood will give Shyamalan something of a fresh start.

The "A.E." leads one to believe that this film takes place 1,000 years "after Earth," but that's purely speculative.
