M. Night Shyamalan on ‘Complicated’ Shooting of ‘Old’ During the Pandemic in Hurricane Season
M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming psychological horror film “Old” was one of the few big-budget movies to film during the coronavirus pandemic. Finding a way to shoot safely and efficiently was no simple task for the filmmaker, especially after a hurricane destroyed the film’s set. Shyamalan discussed the production challenges he ran into while creating “Old” during a Friday panel at the 2021 Tribeca Festival.

The director began principal photography on “Old,” which centers on a vacationing family at an isolated beach that mysteriously causes them to rapidly age over the course of a day, in September in the Dominican Republic. Shyamalan noted that everyone in the cast and crew avoided becoming ill with the coronavirus by effectively quarantining themselves.

“There were a couple times that I was on the verge of tears, but I guess I covered it well,” he said during the event, which was moderated by his “Old” star Alex Wolff.
