I guess this Fox deal to make The Happening is an M. Night Shyamalan bounce-back. After the debacle of Lady in the Water, I mean. Hearing that nobody wanted to buy The Green Effect I figured he’d be in movie jail for at least a year and a half to two years, or perhaps longer. But no — Night is resilient, relentless, exacting, tenacious. That said, The Happening plot sounds like a big gulp: “a paranoid thriller about a family running from a natural crisis that presents a large-scale threat to humanity.”
