M. Night Shyamalan's next film will be Split

Recently enjoying his best reviews for years with his low budget horror The Visit, M. Night Shyamalan (Sixth Sense) is sticking with producer Jason Blum for his next movie. Until recently going by the unwieldy moniker Untitled Blumhouse Production, the project now has a title. News arrives via Variety that it will be called Split.

As previously reported, Split will star James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class) and we recently learned that he will be joined by Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch), Betty Buckley (The Happening), Jessica Sula (Honeytrap) and Haley Ku Richardson (The Last Survivors). Nothing has been revealed about the plot as yet, although we are told it is "a suspense thriller with elements of the supernatural".

Behind the scenes, Shyamalan will be reteaming with several Visit alumni, including Marc Bienstock (Nurse 3D) and executive producers Ashwin Rajan (After Earth) and Steven Schneider (Insidious). All will be hoping to repeat the The Visit's box office success – $90m worldwide from a budget of just $5m.

And with the title announcement comes a release date. Split will arrive in the US on 20 January 2017.
