Fresh off the box-office success of THE VISIT – writer/director/producer M. Night Shyamalan’s feature film collaboration with Blumhouse Productions and Universal Pictures – Universal has just announced that the same creative team is underway on the new supernatural thriller SPLIT, which is slated for an early 2017 release.
M. Night had previously hinted at the project in a video interview we posted October 14th, at which time the film’s title, cast and crew were still under wraps. [Be sure to check out the interview here!] Along with Shyamalan and Blumhouse founder/CEO Jason Blum, VISIT producer Marc Bienstock and executive producers Ashwin Rajan and Steven Schneider will also be onboard.
In front of the cameras, SPLIT will feature X-MEN star James McAvoy and co-stars Anya Taylor Joy, Betty Buckley, Jessica Sula and Haley Lu Richardson. It’s scheduled for release on Friday, January 20th, 2017.
