James McAvoy is set to star in M. Night Shyamalan’s next project for Blumhouse Productions.
Though plot details are under wraps, the project will likely include supernatural elements. It’s also expected to have a fairly low budget along the lines of his recent $5 million budgeted “The Visit”.
McAvoy will replace Joaquin Phoenix who was originally sought to star but a deal couldn’t be reached. Jason Blum and Marc Bienstock are set to produce.
Filming is slated to begin this November in Philadelphia.
