The struggles have ceased and production has started on M. Night Shyamalan's next film -- The Happening. If you remember, the flick has made many of us worry, since the director's talents have been questioned lately -- especially after Lady in the Water. However, it does boast a solid cast -- Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel and John Leguizamo. Then again, each of his films have good casts. Argh. Anyhow, FEARnet has gotten a look at production on the film, which details an airborne disease that drives people nuts and makes them kill themselves.

Most of the pictures they've posted are crew and behind-the-scenes shots, although there are some weird snaps of this scene in a park. As people stand around, unfazed, this guy flails around and falls to the ground. There's also some pictures of a woman with a pink sweater over her shoulders -- a la '80s yuppie -- who just kind of stands there catatonically. I'm guessing that this disease also makes people apathetic before crazy. The site also has a video, but it's nothing too juicy -- just Shyamalan having a conversation.

I have to say, I'm kind of curious about this film -- which sounds like Outbreak mixed with some horror and thrills. I actually liked The Village, Signs freaked me out, but I couldn't even get remotely interested in Lady in the Water. So, I'm thinking I'll wait and see what the response is like. How about you? Will you you give it a chance blindly, or will you need to be convinced?
