Shyamalan and ‘Buried’ Writer Locked In for ‘Twelve Strangers’
Wednesday, June 23 by

M. Night Shyamalan is set to produce, with Chris Sparling set to write, Twelve Strangers, a thriller that involves a jury deliberating a case involving the supernatural. Ah see, now the picture makes sense. Sparling wrote Buried, the movie where Ryan Reynolds is stuck in a coffin underground for ninety minutes. There's also additional details on the script that Shyamalan is currently shopping around town. The other day we reported that Bruce Willis, Bradley Cooper, and Gwyneth Paltrow are set to star, but we had no idea what the project's about, except that it's probably something mysterious. Deadline enlightens us: "Bradley Cooper would play a father on a desperate search for his missing child.  It might stray into Taken terrain, but the father taps into some supernatural powers to aid the search." Maybe he taps into the supernatural powers of Juror Number 5 in the aforementioned project. Whoa. Meta. A studio has yet to scoop up the script, but it's likely someone will bite. No exec wants to get their nose broken by Paltrow while Willis and Cooper watch from afar in horror.
