SHYAMALAN & SCI-FI ISSUES?

Well it seems someone over at the Sci Fi Channel has pee'd in the cheerios of M. Night Shyamalan (Sixth Sense, Unbreakable). Apparently a while back Shyamalan agreed to be filmed for a documentary while he was shooting The Village, well things went sour after Shyamalan felt they were getting to personal and now there seems to be some tension between the two.

Davis DVD reports,

The Sci Fi Channel was thrilled last fall when filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan ('The Sixth Sense') agreed to open his latest project, 'The Village,' to a documentary crew. But then it all went sour. Shyamalan quit on-screen and an expected benign profile has become the three-hour expose The Buried Secret of M. Night Shyamalan, scheduled to air on the cable station on July 18th. While Shyamalan said last December that he hoped the project would 'demystify some of the mysteries of the filmmaking experience,' documentary filmmakers Nathaniel Kahn and Callum Greene instead focused their attentions on the filmmaker himself. According to Greene, he began to go off the 'suggested' list of friends to speak to and contacted others in Shyamalan's life. The filmmaker was angered by the personal nature of what they were asking and slowly his cooperation dried up, Greene said. 'We saw that as a challenge and just didn't let go.' The tension reached the point where Shyamalan walked away during an interview and hasn't done any others for them. According to Greene, the documentary has captured 'unguarded moments' that reveal what Shyamalan really was like, though neither he nor the Sci Fi Channel go into specifics. 'We feel completely confident that we are on solid ground in getting this on the air, in a legal way,' Sci Fi spokesman David Westover said. 'If the project reveals more than Night was comfortable with, that was an inherent gamble that he was aware of long before this was started.'

Yet there may be an element of hardball at play. Going public with an air date and title 'is part of a strategy to apply some pressure to help us with what we need to accomplish,' Westover said. 'The program's contents aren't completely locked and things could change if Shyamalan sat down for another interview.' However, added Westover, 'we probably won't be working with Night in the near future on any creative projects. I can probably guarantee you that.' As for filmmaker Greene, things are a bit more uncomfortable as he shares an agent with Shyamalan. 'I'm not cocky enough or egotistical enough not to be worried,' he said.
