M. Night Shyamalan

DIRECTOR M. Night Shyamalan isn’t as acclaimed as he used to be!

The moviemaker who broke through with the Oscar-nominated The Sixth Sense in 1999 and was proclaimed the next Steven Spielberg — has been left red-faced after finding out three of his fans are raising $150,000 to send him back to film school.

Chris Baker, a copywriter and author, was first inspired last summer at a screening of Inception when a trailer for Devil drew howls of laughter at the phrase “from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan.”

He was quickly joined by two more advertising buddies, one of whom proposed calling the project ‘M. Night School.’ The site wasn’t ready to go, but when the news broke that Shyamalan was planning to step behind the camera again, the trio went live with their cinematic campaign. As of today, a total of $520.33 has been raised.

Baker admits that Shyamalan “will probably be a little hurt” when he finds out about the site, but points out, “his movies do make money, for better or for worse, which is kind of the irony of the whole thing.

“We want to do a stunt where we present him with a giant check. Obviously, the guy’s a multimillionaire, he’ll refuse it.”
