Devil: September 17

Universal Pictures releases this supernatural thriller, the first in what is being called “The Night Chronicles,” a series of collaborations between M. Night Shyamalan and entertainment company Media Rights Capital. The plot is simple but intriguing: a group of people trapped in an elevator realize that one among them is actually the Devil. If this sounds a bit like a TWILIGHT ZONE episode, think of “Five Characters in Search of an Exit.” Going further back there’s the feature film CUBE and, of course, the great grand-daddy of them all: Jean-Paul Sartre’s play, NO EXIT. Drew Dowdle and John Erick Dowdle (the team behind QUARANTINE) direct from a screenplay by Brian Nelson (3O DAYS OF NIGHT), based on a story by Shyamalan. The cast of DEVIL includes: Christ Messina, Geoffrey Arend, Bojana Novakovic, Logan Marshall-Green, Caroline Dhavemas, Jacob Vargas, Bokeem Woodbine, Matt Craven, Jenny O’Hara, and Kim Roberts.

Release date: Originally scheduled for early next year, DEVIL has been pushed up to September 17, 2010.
