Next Shyamalan Thriller Gets Title, February 2023 Release

It apparently never gets “old” for M. Night Shyamalan to tease horror fans with an upcoming project.

The acclaimed filmmaker’s most recent movie–Old–premiered July 23 as the box office champ and has raked in more than $90 million globally so far. And now, according to, his next cinematic effort has a title and a faraway release date.

Shyamalan and Universal Pictures this week confirmed with a clever (and enigmatic) tweet that Knock at the Cabin will hit theaters Feb. 3, 2023. Check out the brief video on this page.

As usual, almost nothing is known about the film at this point, but Shyamalan did tweet over the summer that his draft of “the next one” was complete and checked in as “super tight. Under 100 pages.” That’s tight?

The man behind such hits as UnbreakableSplit and Glass has said he’s having fun making movies now, taking “big tonal risks and trying to hit that note of absurd-but-grounded, that dark humor moment.”

He added that he likes to “deal with some complicated things and not necessarily take the audience where they’re comfortable–both during or even at the end.” His films, the writer-director said, are “minimal, contained and I own them.”
