After being asked if he chooses to produce movies that fit well within what has become is “brand” as a filmmaker, in a recent interview with Movies.com, M. Night Shyamalan points out that in the same year he directed The Sixth Sense he wrote Stuart Little, and that he sees his brand falling somewhere in between those. Ok, M. Night! It’s your brand, my man. I bring it up because he goes on to drop a MAJOR GHOSTWRITING BOMB (which he drops seconds after he says he will not drop it):
[Shyamalan:] By the way, I ghost-wrote a movie that same year that would even add to the breadth of it all, but I don’t know if I want to tell you which movie I ghost-wrote. [Laughs]
Movies.com: We’d love to hear about it.
Shyamalan: I ghost-wrote the movie She’s All That. [Laughs]
[Laughs] [Dies] [Explodes] Who the HELL would nominate M. Night Shyamalan? To have been the writer of that movie?! Am I a bet? Am I a FUCKING BET? (That quote I couldn’t really fit into the situation, but I did it with the first quote so perfectly that I think I have a pass.) What a nice little piece of trivia. I hope your upcoming OK Cupid date doesn’t read blogs! Anyway, now that your mind is BLOWN, how is your day going? Or how has it gone? What’s up?
