"No matter where you go, there you are."


M. Night Shyamalan has begun filming Old

Over the weekend, M. Night Shyamalan tweeted the news that he had started production on his new film.

Called Old, the film is based on a graphic novel called Sandcastle by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters.

Here is the synopsis for the novel:

It’s a perfect beach day, or so thought the family, young couple, a few tourists, and a refugee who all end up in the same secluded, idyllic cove filled with rock pools and sandy shore, encircled by green, densely vegetated cliffs. But this utopia hides a dark secret. First there is the dead body of a woman found floating in the crystal-clear water. Then there is the odd fact that all the children are aging rapidly. Soon everybody is growing older―every half hour―and there doesn’t seem to be any way out of the cove.

According to Collider, Shyamalan received Sandcastle as a Father’s Day gift and loved the premise so much that he purchased the rights to the graphic novel, which served as a launching point for his script.

The film stars Gael Garcia Bernal, Eliza Scanlen, Thomasin McKenzie, Aaron Pierre, Alex Wolff, Vicky Krieps, Abbey Lee, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Ken Leung, Rufus Sewell, Embeth Davidtz and Emun Elliott.

Shyamalan and his Blinding Edge Pictures partner Ashwin Rajan produced Old with Marc Bienstock, while Steven Schneider served as an executive producer. Production is already under way in the Dominican Republic.

Universal will release Old on 23rd July 2021.
