Dave Bautista To Lead M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Knock At The Cabin’

Dave Bautista is one of the most in-demand actors around, and his dance card is pretty full with sequels to Knives Out, Dune, and Guardians of the Galaxy on the way. But he’s still got some time on the schedule to fit in a new film from M. Night Shyamalan.

Deadline reports Bautista has agreed to star in Knock at the Cabin, the upcoming thriller from Shyamalan. What do we know about it? Next to nothing, which is probably the best way to take in a Shyamalan flick, considering the number of twists and turns they take. The less we know, the better. But clearly there’s a role for a big, burly dude who knows how to execute a perfect powerbomb.

Banking on Shyamalan has been a good bet for Universal. His latest, the beachside thriller Old, earned more than $90M during pandemic times. Not too shabby.

My only concern is that this might stand in the way of the action flick Bautista and Jason Momoa conjured up into reality. Nothing better stop that from happening.
