M. Night Shyamalan is at this point better known for underwhelming audiences than for providing solid fare (see: “The Happening”;”Lady in the Water”), but perhaps his smash “The Sixth Sense” is enough to lure in top actors.
The filmmaker, whose “Last Airbender” fantasy will hit theaters July 1 and just may repair his reputation, is said to be shopping around an untitled project that has Bradley Cooper, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bruce Willis “loosely attached” to the project.
Say what you will about post-"A-Team" Bradley Cooper, but he - along with Paltrow and Willis - has a veritable amount of star power.
The notoriously secretive Shyamalan definitely hasn't dropped any plot point hints, and it looks like this script is under lock and key: THR reports that one of his assistant's was present whenever a studio exec flipped through the material before making an exit with the script in hand.
