The four movies that the 2-time Oscar nominee has released so far with Universal include "The Visit," "Split," "Glass" and "Old." These thrillers have grossed a combined $713M worldwide.

"Knock at the Cabin" stars Dave Bautista, Jonathan Groff, Rupert Grint, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Ben Aldridge, and follows a vacationing family as they must make a dire choice regarding the apocalypse after being taken hostage by mysterious strangers. Production on the film took place in South Jersey.

Shyamalan is no stranger to filming his projects in the region. His Apple TV+ horror show "Servant," which will premiere its fourth and final season in January, was filmed in Philadelphia.
