With M. Night long established and now daughter Ishana stepping up her own career, the Shyamalan family filmmaking business is trundling ahead nicely. Having served as second unit director on Old and being a key member of the Servant creative team, Ishana Night Shyamalan is making her feature directorial debut with The Watched, which stars Dakota Fanning, Georgina Campbell and Olwen Fouéré. Check out the first trailer for the horror thriller right here:

Fanning here plays Mina, an artist who becomes stranded in a giant, untouched forest somewhere in Ireland. Stumbling on a mysterious glass-walled home, she thinks she might have found safe shelter.

But no! As it turns out, she's soon trapped alongside three strangers who are watched all night by unseen, peculiar creatures. What's really going on? It's a Shyamalan film, so we're expecting some surprises.

Adapted from AM Shine's novel by Ishana Night Shyamalan and produced by M. Night, Ashwin Rajan and Nimitt Mankad, The Watched (which for some reason – we're guessing a name clash with some other copyrighted moniker – was renamed from the Stateside version The Watchers), will be out in the UK on 7 June.
