M. Night Shyamalan’s next film has Cooper, Willis and Paltrow loosely attached

HollywoodNews.com: Before “The Last Airbender” even takes off, M. Night Shyamalan is discreetly assembling his next project.

The Hollywood Reporter has its ear to the rail and learned that Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bruce Willis are loosely attached. There are no details on the plot.

The trade explains the director-writer’s process for circulating his scripts:

Shyamalan is famously secretive, and this project is no exception: Only top studio execs have read the script, and they were required to allow a Shyamalan assistant to supervise the process. When the execs finished reading, the assistant took the script back and left.
It’s a practice that is consistent with previous Shyamalan script sales. But while there was a time when an original Shyamalan project — with their trademarked twists and reveals — caused great ripples throughout Hollywood, in recent years the filmmaker has seen his boxoffice and critical clout diminish.

Pre-buzz on “Airbender” is iffy. The film is the director’s first project not based on his own screenplay, rather a Nickelodeon cartoon franchise. Furthermore, it’s laden with effects — an anomaly for a Shyamalan film. Suspicions have been raised whether the film is any good given its last minute transition to 3-D. “Airbender’s” best bets at the box office is to slot No. 2 behind “The Twilight Saga: Eclipse.”
