M. Night Shyamalan’s string of box-office failures has finally caught up with him. With the critical and financial debacle known as The Last Airbender dying a slow, painful death in theaters, Universal is seeking to distance its upcoming project, The Night Chronicles: Devil, from the director.
Universal has decided to tweak the title a bit to something less … attributed to. According to Box Office Mojo the film will now be known simply at Devil. A safe move considering the cra The Last Airbender has been getting from critics and fans alike.
While renaming the film is a great idea, I’m not sure it’s going to fool everyone. Instead of Devil, maybe they should have went with The First Water Straightener or Not an M. Night Shyamalan Movie, just to be sure. (DreadCentral)
