Dave Bautista will team with filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan on the latter’s next feature "Knock at the Cabin".
Knock at the Cabin is due out from Universal on Feb. 3, 2023, and continues Shyamalan’s lengthy partnership with the studio, which has released Old (2021), Glass (2019), Split (2017) and The Visit (2015).
While his most recent film, Old, involved a large ensemble, Shyamalan has always like to have one or two big movie stars anchoring his films - like Bruce Willis, Mark Wahlberg and James McAvoy - and given his track record of great scripts stars are always lining up. Bautista was quick to jump at the opportunity to work with the Oscar-nominated director.
Bautista is currently in production on Gunn’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which may be his final film in which he plays Drax, after reprising the role for Avengers: Infinity War, Avengers: Endgame and the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder. He is also slated to appear in Knives Out 2 and is attached to a buddy cop film also starring Jason Momoa and set up at MGM.
