According to news, Shooter star Mark Wahlberg has now been cast to “play a man who takes his family on the run when a deadly natural disaster threatens to end the world.” If Senator Jame Inhofe gets eaten by a giant mushroom in the first scene, this will be an instant classic.

Shyamalan had nothing but praise for Wahlberg saying, “Mark has a unique blend of charisma, humanity, authenticity and skillfulness as an actor; all of which coalesced at this moment in his career, making him the perfect person to take on the role of Eliot Moore, the science teacher at the centre of this event.”

Titled The Happening, the movie will be released on the appropriate date of Friday, June 13, 2008.  The plot will most likely contain all the twists and surprise endings we’ve come to expect from the modern day master of suspense. How do you think the movie will end? Let us know in the comments! For me, if the world ate everything, but decided to leave alone New Zealand because it was “too pretty”, I’d be satisfied. A surprise scene with Governor Schwarzenegger battling giant weeds would also compliment nicely. Tell us!
