Shyamalan blasts Disney in new book

M. Night Shyamalan, whose name alone brings monetary success to his films, lashed out at his old studio in a new book published next month.

Shyamalan left Disney, where he made all his successful films including The SIxth Sense, Signs and The Village, after disagreement over his new film Lady in the Water with the studio's producers.

A meeting with Disney execs in Philadelphia last February left Shyamalan in tears, and in the book he is particularly harsh on his former mentor Nina Jacobson.

The eerie film director bolted to Warner Brothers which is releasing Lady in the Water on July 21.
