Didn’t see the ‘Signs’
Here’s a twist we didn’t see coming: M. Night Shyamalan says that his breakthrough, “The Sixth Sense,” wasn’t his only 1999 film. In press appearances for his latest bomb — er, disappointment, “After Earth,” he reveals that he ghost-wrote the teen comedy “She’s All That.” Perhaps Shyamalan should return to ghost-writing until his reputation recovers.
