M. Night Shyamalan ghostwrote 'She's All That'


M. Night Shyamalan, the brilliant mind behind The Sixth Sense the fleeting Hollywood bigshot responsible for such recent cinematic atrocities as After Earth, Lady in the Water, The Last Air Bender, and The Happening, was—not too long ago—doing an interview with Movies.com to promote his recent Will Smith Jaden Smith abomination. While addressing his frustrating career arc and managing fans' expectations, Shyamalan admitted that he ghostwrote a 1999 film, but wasn't sure he was ready to divulge the name of the project.

Then, with minimal prodding, he caved and copped to penning the best Freddie Prinze Jr. film of all the Freddie Prinze Jr. films, '90s high school masterpiece She's All That.

By the way, I ghost-wrote a movie that same year that would even add to the breadth of it all, but I don't know if I want to tell you which movie I ghost-wrote. [Laughs]

Movies.com: We'd love to hear about it.

Shyamalan: I ghost-wrote the movie She's All That. [Laughs]


M. Night Shyamalan ghostwrote She's All That? Sounds funny because, to my recollection, that film didn't include an overhanded "save the environment" message being forced down the crowd's throats at the end, did it? Seriously, though, that was M. Night. Weird.

Now, Sixpence None the Richer will play us out! [Movies, h/t Gawker]
