Two days left to the first day of production on #Split. Looking through my thick book of storyboards. Thinking about rehearsals. Pacing.

After the moderate success of The Visit, director M. Night Shyamalan has a title and release date for his next thriller.
It seems as though studios have regained trust in Shyamalan after a series of unsuccessful films including After Earth and The Last Airbender. Shyamalan's The Visit was released to moderate success, grossing about $90 million dollars at the box office, on a small budget of just five million dollars.
Studios are now willing to give M. Night a small budget to make other thrillers and continue his resurgence, that started with his work in the hit series Wayward Pines.
Blumhouse Productions, responsible for franchises like Paranormal Activity and Insidious have reached an agreement with Shyamalan to release a thriller titled Split to be released on January 20th 2017.
The film's cast will include Anya Taylor Joy, Haley Lu Richardson, Betty Buckly, and Jessica Sula, but the star of Split will be none other than Professor Xavier himself James McAvoy.
Not much is known about the film's plot but I feel confident in saying it'll be a thrill ride. The combination of Shyamalan's twists and turns and McAvoy's excellent on-screen presence will make for a thriller unlike any other.
I'd consider Shyamalan's career revived on the basis of Wayward Pines' success alone. It was received positively by critics and gained millions of viewers consistently. Now that The Visit's numbers have come in positively as well, fans should be willing to give M. Night another chance. I'm sure he won't let us down now.

4 days into shooting #Split. I am thrilled with what we are getting, but man, directing is exhausting!

A leaf fell in my lap as I directed today. I took it as a good sign. (Leaves were falling on everyone btw)

8 days of shooting #Split complete. Spent the day running through tunnels under an old asylum. Felt glad to come to the surface!

Two weeks of shooting #Split down. It's an honor to direct these world-class actors. @BettyBuckley @anyataylorjoy, and James McAvoy.
And this past week (for the most part) would have been without James.

Starting 19th day of shooting #Split. So humbling to direct. It's an art of making a 1,000 decisions a day. Invariably you are wrong a lot.
So....only 11 shooting days left..? It makes me wonder how many scenes James will actually be in, in this movie considering it seems like he's hardly been there (in London for ESTA and doing VF PR..) and it is only a 30 day shoot.

Watched Paolo Sorrentino's The Great Beauty from 2013. Truly amazing film. Really inspires me for #Split.

ryantygh@haleyluhoo is clearly having the time of her life, @jessiesula has no idea where she is, #JamesMcAvoy is giving his best #HughJackman thug brow, there is a woman in the corner who clearly doesn't wish to be seen, and Night is off camera taking it all in. So much action for such a tiny elevator!
ryantyghDid you know that #JamesMcAvoy and I both studied at the Hugh Jackman school of eyebrow acting...true story!

I'm quite surprise that James is still there as of today. Two tweets from Betty Buckley:

Last day of shooting on #Split. Most challenging shoot of my career. I tried to push myself cinematically on this one. Exhausted but excited

James McAvoy's performance is literally jaw-dropping. #Split.

Getting ready to go into the editing room Monday morn. Trying to shed ambition. Remind myself all that matters is the characters. #Split.

In the editing room everyday on #Split. My longest film. Incredibly ambitious film for a very small budget. Such a dark twisted story.
