The Happening still has two more weeks of shooting left, but M. Night Shyamalan
and fellow filmmakers hosted the thriller's wrap party Saturday night. (The
idea: Celebrate while the entire cast is still in town.)
The several hundred
revelers at the TPDS party space in Washington Square West knew they were in for
something special, apart from the flutes of champagne that greeted them. Call it
a sixth sense.
Bruce Willis showed up.
Shyamalan (with wife
Bhavna) had invited Willis, his star of The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, to join
The Happening's crew and cast, including Mark Wahlberg, Zooey Deschanel, Betty
Buckley and Robert Bailey Jr., plus producers Sam Mercer and Jose Rodriguez
(with wife Michelle). Shyamalan had black-and-white movies, including Citizen
Kane, playing on projectors to help set the mood, said TPDS's Delores Browne.
Willis and the Shyamalans closed the place.
The company yesterday struck
its set in Plumsteadville, Bucks County. Next stop will be Ridley Creek State
Park in Delaware County, followed by interiors on a soundstage at the Navy Yard
in South Philly.
They are filming on Sandy Flash Drive (North), Ridley Creek State Park in Newtown Square, Pa.
Also someone e-mailed me a set photo from Plumsteadville. It shows out favorite red Jeep with camera rigging on it.
