Budget impasse drives Shyamalan to Canada

Written by Barbara Vancheri on .

From the Associated Press, quoting the Philadelphia Inquirer, comes word that M. Night Shyamalan is leaving the state for his next movie. So far, the trio of movies coming to Pittsburgh are still coming.


PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Pennsylvania's budget impasse even has the "Devil" heading for the hills.

The upcoming thriller by M. Night Shyamalan is moving production from Philadelphia north to Toronto.

Officials with the state film office say that's because of uncertainty about whether Pennsylvania's film tax credit will be approved in the budget.

The budget has been in limbo for nearly two months.

Shyamalan lives near the Philadelphia suburb of Malvern and has filmed eight of his nine movies in the region, including "The Sixth Sense," starring Bruce Willis.
