Brian Nelson (“30 Days of Night”) will write the PG-13 supernatural thriller “Devil”, the first project in M. Night Shyamalan’s three-picture deal to hatch horror films for Media Rights Capital reports Variety.
Based on an original story by Shyamalan, plot details are under wraps though “Quarantine” directors John and Andrew Dowdle will helm the project.
Sam Mercer will produce alongside Shyamalan under their ‘The Night Chronicles’ banner which will release one new film each year over the next three years. Shyamalan will oversee all three films’ development and production.
Production on “Devil” is slated to begin next year.
