I suggested this fact five months ago, but it’s been confirmed by the author himself that M. Night Shyamalan‘s forthcoming Knock at the Cabin is a direct adaptation of Paul Tremblay‘s “The Cabin at the End of the World”.

While they don’t explain why, CNBC says that after all that waiting, dealmaking and deal-remaking, Tremblay had to keep hush-hush about the movie’s source material. Tremblay is now clear to talk about Knock at the Cabin, and talked about it a bit in the link above.

Starring are Dave Bautista (Army of the Dead), Rupert Grint (“Servant”) and Nikki Amuka-Bird (Old) star alongside Ben Aldridge (“Pennyworth”) and Jonathan Groff (“Mindhunter”).

The film is a home invasion horror film that takes place during the apocalypse.

Here’s a synopsis from Good Reads:

“Seven-year-old Wen and her parents, Eric and Andrew, are vacationing at a remote cabin on a quiet New Hampshire lake. Their closest neighbors are more than two miles in either direction along a rutted dirt road.

“One afternoon, as Wen catches grasshoppers in the front yard, a stranger unexpectedly appears in the driveway. Leonard is the largest man Wen has ever seen but he is young, friendly, and he wins her over almost instantly. Leonard and Wen talk and play until Leonard abruptly apologizes and tells Wen, ‘None of what’s going to happen is your fault.’ Three more strangers then arrive at the cabin carrying unidentifiable, menacing objects. As Wen sprints inside to warn her parents, Leonard calls out: ‘Your dads won’t want to let us in, Wen. But they have to. We need your help to save the world.'”

Shyamalan writes, directs and produces the thriller for Universal Pictures.

Knock at the Cabin will be released by Universal Pictures on February 3, 2023.

That trailer gives away more than I would've expected for a Shyamalan movie. I would've thought it better to let viewers discover the antagonists' motivation alongside the characters. Still, the book was good and this looks like it'll be a strong and suspenseful adaptation of it.

That's way early for a trailer of an original IP, isn't it?

It would makes sense that Universal would want it playing in front of Halloween Ends.
