On the 6th of August, M. Night Shyamalan celebrates his birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MR. SHYAMALAN!
Manoj Nelliyattu Shyamalan was born on August 6, 1970, in Mahe, India. From his early age, he was an avid filmmaker, trying out his first shots with Super-8 camera that his parents got him.
Shyamalan's first two movies - Praying with Anger (1992) and Wide Awake (1998) - didn't make him a star. But his third effort propelled him into a cinema history.
The Sixth Sense (1999), starring Bruce Willis made a star out of Shyamalan overnight, giving him the opportunity to film his other great movies such as: Unbreakable (2000), Signs (2002), The Village (2004), and most recently Split (2015).
Shyamalan's movies are known for crazy twists and supernatural elements combined with everyday life's situations.
He is currently filming Glass (2019), a mystery/sci-fi about a security guard David Dunn who uses his supernatural abilities to track Kevin Wendel Crumb, a disturbed man who has 24 personalities.
