M. Night Shyamalan, director of such films as “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs,” was seen filming what may or may not be his new film – “Labor of Love” – at the Highland train station in Chestnut Hill.

The film, which IMDB currently says is in pre-production, follows a widower as he “embarks on a cross-country trip on foot to prove his love for his late wife.” Set to star is Bruce Willis, who appeared in Shyamalan’s “The Sixth Sense” and “Unbreakable.” It would mark the third collaboration between the director and actor.

Shyamalan grew up in the Philadelphia suburb of Penn Valley and attended Waldron Mercy Academy and later Episcopal Academy. A majority of his films were filmed in or around the Philadelphia area, and his production company, Blinding Edge Pictures, is located in Berwyn, PA. He and his family reside in Willistown, PA.

    I love how his Rotten Tomatoes percentage looks like the stock market in 1929. No doubt this will suck like the rest of his movies.

    I commend Shyamalan for his loyalty to Philadelphia. He could work in LA or NY or anywhere but he keeps it local. His production company is local. Whether your a fan of his work is opinion. His character, loyalty and steadfastness to our city is praiseworthy.

    It’s great to see that M. Night was on the Hill. Does anyone have an interesting stories to share from the filming? Did any of the crew visit places on the Avenue?
