Variety reports today that M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Happening” has been green lit by 20th Century Fox and will be shooting in Philadelphia this August. “The Happening” written by M. Night Shyamalan follows a family trying to escape a natural disaster that could end all humanity. “The Happening” will be M. Night Shyamalan’s first R-rated thriller.

“We talked about trying to get the kind of intensity that is present in ‘Silence of the Lambs,’ and the kind that Guillermo del Toro got in `Pan’s Labyrinth.’ The impact of the beautiful things in that movie wouldn’t have landed as strongly if the film had not been R rated,” said Shyamalan.
