Phillyist has posted up some juicy spoiler details from early scenes in the next M. Night Shyamalan feature – “The Happening” currently in production in Philadelphia. Here’s the scoop, and watch out as there’s some big stuff revealed – including a death:
“Something is making people in Philadelphia go crazy and kill themselves, and they can’t figure out what it is or why. In one scene, some people are driving through some farm land and they find out (on the radio, maybe?) that it’s an airborne virus. Being out in the sticks, they think they’re okay, until they drive by a farm and see a bunch of tree surgeons or farmers or something who’ve hanged themselves with garden hoses.
They try to seal up all the air vents, windows, etc. in the car, but it’s too late. The car stops, idles for a minute, and then accelerates straight into a tree. The two people in the front seat go through the window and die immediately. John Leguizamo’s character was in the back seat and survives… but stumbles out of the car, picks up a shard of glass from the broken window, and slits his wrists.
