The Duffer Brothers have had a runaway hit with ‘Stranger Things‘ ever since it debuted on Netflix and now we’ve learned that M Night Shyamalan would love to direct an episode from the upcoming second season! This one almost seems like a no-brainer to see happen as Shyamalan actually gave the brothers had their writing break on ‘Wayward Pines‘ so it wouldn’t be too surprising to see them collaborating here as well.
It might be interesting to see Shyamalan fit things in with helping to hype ‘Split’ and his active development for ‘Tales from the Crypt‘ but I suspect that with the show being delayed due to rights issues that this is one job he might be able to make happen.
When talking about The Duffer Brothers he said that:

“My boys who do Stranger Things, they did Wayward Pines for me. They were round my house and I was like, ‘Well, you can hire me back guys!'”
It sounds as if the three still have a friendly relationship so I’m sure we’ll be hearing if this will go through sooner than later if they haven’t already locked down who is directing each episode of the upcoming second season. Outside of The Duffer Brothers handling the first two and Shawn Levy handling the third and fourth that is. With no word who will be tackling the fifth and beyond at this point, there may very well be an episode or two could end up having Shyamalan’s name on it.
