Shyamalan’s calling card throughout his career has been a long, long list of people, places, and stories that get under a viewer’s skin. For one to go as far as affecting the director in that way makes us very excited indeed.

Little is known about Knock at the Cabin’s subject matter so far, but we do know who is going to be in the new movie, which is dated for February 3, 2023.

Dave Bautista (Army of the Dead) is set to be joined by Nikki Amuka-Bird and Rupert Grint (who have previous with Shyamalan in Old and the Apple series Servant respectively). Ben Aldridge (Pennyworth) and The Matrix Resurrections’ Jonathan Groff round out the current cast.

Knock at the Cabin is set to be the director’s 15th feature film. His most recent release, Old, became his sixth to top the box office and grossed $90m worldwide.
