Could Will Smith Redeem M. Knight Shyamalan?

Will Smith and his son Jaden are apparently next in line to star in the latest M. Knight Shyamalan flick.  The problem is his movies have not done well lately, so does Will Smith have the star power to reboot the writer/director?

I still to this day am scared to death of M. Knight Shyamalan’s The Sixth Sense, but as far as the more recent M. Knight movies go they are big turds.  Trashed by critics and trashed by fans.  He has had some really good ones.  Signs, Unbreakable and The Lady In The Water were all pretty good.  But when he makes a bad movie, it is bad.

Remember The Village?  The concept of that seemed so cool until his signature twist revealed how lame the story was.  How about The Happening?  Oh no!  Watch out for all the scary plants trying to kill people!  Not even Mark Wahlberg could save that one.  Now it seems like it’s Will Smiths turn at it.

Both Will and Jaden smith have signed on for Shyamalan’s next movie.  It will be a sci-fi thriller set 1,000 years in the future mostly focused on Jaden’s character.  Now both Will and Jaden have proved to be box office gold but can they save M. Knight?  I love Will Smith’s movies.  Independence Day, I Robot, I am Legend all are great.  I certainly hope that this doesn’t end up sucking.   With M. Knight involved it is very possible.   I guess we will just have to wait and see.
