The latest from M. Night Shyamalan twisted adventure, Knock on the hutis all about a missed family vacation – not quite unlike his latest horror film, Old. But Knock on the hut‘s family is not tortured by the sands of the time that has been revealed. No, Shyamalan’s newest villain is much more terrifying: Dave Bautista in a tucked-in button. The film hits theaters on February 3, 2023.
In the trailer for Knock on the hut, two fathers take their daughter to a remote cabin in the woods. After some lakeside pranks, the trio is set up by a group of four mysterious characters, led by Bautista’s sweet-natured Leonard. After knocking on the door of the family cabin – while armed to the teeth – Bautista’s crew reveals that the family must make an “unthinkable choice” or else they will unleash the apocalypse on all of us.
In addition to the WWE Superstar turned actor, Jonathan Groff (Hamilton, The Matrix resurrections), Rupert Grint (Harry Potter), Ben Aldridge (Pennyworth, flea bag), Nikki Amuka Bird (Persuasion, Old), Abby Quinn (petite women, Landline), and newcomer Kristen Cui.
The screenplay was written by Shyamalan, Steve Desmond and Michael Sherman. The movie is an adaptation of the book The cabin at the end of the world by Paul Tremblay. Shyamalan also produces Knock on the hutalongside some of his previous producers, Marc Bienstock and Ashwin Rajan.
