Will Smith Gives M. Night Shyamalan a nickname that ups his street cred!

I liked M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village and Lady in the Water. I know that most people do not care for them, so I am in the minority. Do not worry, I did not like The Last Airbender or The Happening.

Whether you like him as a director or not, he is sticking around. His next film, After Earth (aka 1000 A.E.) has the megawatt star power of Will Smith and his son Jaden. The film is a big-budget sci-fi film about a father and son who  son who crash land on earth 1,000 years after humans have vacated the planet entirely.

During the pre-production process Shyamalan and Smith are apparently getting to know each other to the point of giving nicknames. Shyamalan responded on Twitter when a fan asked what people call him and it is pretty funny:
Most family calls me" Manoj." All my friends and everyone else calls me "Night." A few peeps call me "M." Will Smith calls me "M. Neezie."
The movie is scheduled to arrive in theaters on June 2013, and we will not know if it will have a safe or rough landing until closer to then. One thing we do know is that it is not a bad thing to build a comfortable relationship when working on a big-budget film. I am interested in seeing this movie. What are your thoughts?
