Leguizamo joins Shyamalan's The Happening

JohnLeguizamo.jpgJohn Leguizamo has joined the cast of M. Night Shyamalan's promising horror, The Happening, joining Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel.

Filming is going to be starting next month, a date which I can hardly believe since it just seemed like yesterday that the script was being passed around Studios.

Variety have the news about John Leguizamo joining M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening, a film which tells the story of a natural evolution that results in a deadly disease that threatens to wipe out humans from the face of the Earth.

As humans themselves are treated as a disease by the natural evolution of the planet, the Earth evolves and develops a natural toxin that combats them. When released it infects the nearest person causing them to try and kill themselves, much like an antibody works within our own immune system.

I have to say I've not seen Lady in the Water, and my desire for the storytelling of Shyamalan has not been dulled, I'm keen to see this film, and I hope that he continues to make films. After all, in this marketplace of sequels, prequels and revisits, why wouldn't you want to see anything showing imagination and working on a premise that offers something very new? Would you rather see a big cast remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers again?



There seems to be a lot of negativity towards this movie and Leguizamo being casted but I honestly think that it won't be THAT bad of a movie. The storyline seems interesting... reminds me of a movie that would be a sci-fi action thriller. We'll just have to see till next year to see the reactions from other people. Leguizamo seems to be a busy man with this movie and with his mini-series "The Kill Point" with co-star Donnie Wahlberg. Leguizamo comes out as a bank robber as while Wahlberg comes out as the negotiator. This series will premiere on July 22nd on Spike TV @ 9pm! I know this information because I work with them & I personally can not wait till this show comes out! If you want previews, you can go to http://killpoint.spiketv.com!
