M. Night Shyamalan, director of such films as “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs,” was seen filming what may or may not be his new film – “Labor of Love” – at the Highland train station in Chestnut Hill.
The film, which IMDB currently says is in pre-production, follows a widower as he “embarks on a cross-country trip on foot to prove his love for his late wife.” Set to star is Bruce Willis, who appeared in Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakable.” It would mark the third collaboration between the director and actor.
Shyamalan grew up in the Philadelphia suburb of Penn Valley and attended Waldron Mercy Academy and later Episcopal Academy. A majority of his films were filmed in or around the Philadelphia area, and his production company, Blinding Edge Pictures, is located in Berwyn, PA. He and his family reside in Willistown, PA.
