There may — or may not — be a twist at the end of this video interview with Wayward Pines‘ executive producer M. Night Shyamalan and the cast of his upcoming Fox event series.
After all, Shyamalan made a name for himself writing and directing gotcha! films like The Sixth Sense and Signs.
And the fact that his new cast — which includes Carla Gugino (Political Animals), Toby Jones (The Girl), Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Matt Dillon (There’s Something About Mary), Shannyn Sossamon (Mistresses) and Charlie Tahan (Law & Order: SVU) — likens the thriller to Twin Peaks and Twilight Zone indicates that the drama’s got secrets to spare.
Still, Shyamalan promises to “tell a beautiful story from beginning to end with closure,” regardless of whether the 10-episode tale is extended (a la Under the Dome).
“You will get answers to everything,” he tells Michael Ausiello in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con interview suite.
The story follows Dillon’s character, a Secret Service agent who comes to a deceptively bucolic Idaho town to search for two federal agents who’ve gone missing.
