M. Night Shyamalan to film new psychological thriller ‘Trap’ in Cincinnati
Shyamalan, best known for “The Sixth Sense” and “Signs,” will film the movie “Trap” in the Queen City, according to the film’s IMDB page. That page sets the film’s targeted release as August 2024.
“Trap” was among eight projects that received tax incentives from the Ohio Department of Development in July, pocketing $9.5 million. That was the second-highest amount awarded, behind the $14 million awarded to a film called “Ella McCay,” though details about that film and its location are unclear.
During Warner Bros.’ CineEurope show this June, Shyamalan teased fans during a brief video appearance saying “Trap” will be a “psychological thriller set at a concert,” Deadline reports.
The decision to film “Trap” locally is another notch in the belt of the region’s movie industry advocates.
Cincinnati has been the backdrop for several notable films in recent years, including Robert De Niro’s upcoming mob film “Wise Guys” and Tom Hardy’s “The Bikeriders.”
