Joaquin Phoenix & M. Night Shyamalan To Team For Thriller

3-time Oscar nominee Joaquin Phoenix looks set to team up with director M. Night Shyamalan for the second time in his career for a yet to be titled thriller.

The 40 year old actor who last teamed with Shyamalan for Signs in 2002, is understood to be deep into negotiations with Shyamalan and producer Jason Blumhouse for what is expected to be a small-scale supernatural thriller, though little is known of the actual plot.

M. Night Shyamalan’s career took a sudden down turn after his last collaboration with Phoenix, with The Last Airbender being perhaps the biggest failure in the box office and with critics in 2010. Since then, the Sixth Sense director has directed After Earth (2013) and The Visit which is due to be released in September and will star Kathryn Haan.
