Josh Hartnett has promised a "very dark" return to form for director M. Night Shyamalan on new thriller Trap.

Even though the movie is set to be released in just a few months, details are scarce which is fairly typical for a Shyamalan movie as he likes to keep things as secretive as possible.

That means we might be getting some of his vintage twists and turns.

Hartnett recently spoke to IndieWire to detail what we can expect from Trap.

"It’s a pivot. But I try to make all of my roles pivots. If you’re playing the same thing again and again, it gets boring to the audience. Working with M. Night was one of the best experiences of my career. I think he’s a true artist in the capital sense of the word.

"And I think people are gonna be really surprised and excited about the movie we make. It’s very bizarre, very dark, and it’s wild.”

Shyamalan's last thriller, Knock at the Cabin, received mostly positive reviews from critics and earned $54 million on a budget of $20m.

Warner Bros. deal with Shyamalan

Warner Bros. are distributing Trap and it is the first movie in a first-look deal they currently have with Shyamalan.

In a previous statement, the studio's heads Michael De Luca and Pamela Abdy said: "Night is one of the most iconic and influential directors of his generation and an auteur in every sense of the word.

“From ‘The Sixth Sense’ through ‘Split’ to his latest chiller ‘Knock at the Cabin,’ he’s one of the few directors in contemporary cinema whose name alone promises a bold, singular vision, compelling original storytelling and a provocative, surprising and entirely unique experience at the theater.

"We couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome him to the Warner Bros. family, and look forward to an exciting collaboration with Night and the entire Blinding Edge team.”
