Josh Hartnett Joins M. Night Shyamalan in a Thrilling New Film

Josh Hartnett, once a teen sensation with films like The Virgin Suicides and Pearl Harbor under his belt, is making waves again. This time, he’s collaborating with acclaimed director M. Night Shyamalan. They’re currently working on a project in Canada, a film that’s been intriguingly described as a “psychological thriller set at a concert.”

Interestingly, the film was first titled Trap, but now it’s shooting under the temporary name Good Grades. While the final title remains a mystery, the anticipation is building. Shyamalan is not just directing; he’s also wearing the producer’s hat and funding the entire venture. It’s a bold move, especially since they’re filming amidst an ongoing actors’ strike. But Shyamalan, known for his dedication, has secured an agreement from SAG-AFTRA to proceed.

In the film, Hartnett plays a father who decides to take his son to a concert. But as the music plays and the crowd sways, things turn dark and twisted. Saleka Shyamalan, M. Night Shyamalan’s talented daughter, is cast opposite Hartnett. She portrays the artist whose concert they attend. For those unfamiliar with Saleka, she’s not new to her father’s world of film. She contributed original songs to his 2021 movie, Old.

Hartnett has been quite selective with his roles lately. After stepping back from the limelight and focusing on his personal life, he’s been making a steady comeback. He appeared in an episode of Black Mirror and even played a role in Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. Next on his plate, apart from the Shyamalan project, is James Madigan’s Fight Or Flight.

This collaboration between Hartnett and Shyamalan promises to be electrifying. With a concert at its heart and psychological twists awaiting, movie lovers have every reason to be excited. It’s a fresh chapter for Hartnett and another thrilling addition to Shyamalan’s repertoire.
