M. Night Shyamalan is re-teaming with Bruce Willis in a new film titled Labor of Love. The director is currently reacquiring the rights to the screenplay, which he sold to 20th Century Fox in 1993. In the film, Willis will play a bookstore owner who walks across the country in order to prove his love for his wife. Also, the wife is dead, so it's sort of like a cross between Forrest Gump and About Schmidt. There's a reason I'm not in marketing.



Shyamalan, whose recent career trajectory can best described as a downward spiral, rose to prominence with 1999's The Sixth Sense, which also starred Willis. But after a few solid followups, Shyamalan began a string of commercial and critical failures from which he has yet to recover, and his name became synonyms with hokey twist endings. I feel bad writing that because he's a thousand times more talented and successful than I'll ever be, but such is life. Hopefully this new project will be the start of a comeback. (Source)
