M. Night Shyamalan Ghostwrote "She's All That"

Here's some crazy news to start your day off with: In a new interview with Movies.com, After Earth director M. Night Shyamalan revealed that, back in the '90s, he ghost-wrote the Rachel Leigh Cook- Freddie Prinze Jr.-starrer She's All That

Wait, what?

From the interview:

Movies.com: People have come to expect a certain something from an M. Night Shyamalan movie, so do you find yourself picking projects that are going to manage what has become this idea of you as a brand?
Shyamalan: I guess I would say that I manage it in the sense that I try to make it more accurate. For example, you're saying the audience's relationship started with me with The Sixth Sense. That same year I wrote Stuart Little. That combination is pretty accurate. The breadth of that and my interest in that, the family-oriented nature of that story -- somewhere between there is where a lot of my movies fall, but if you don't take that side of it into account, it's probably more limiting than what my tastes are.

By the way, I ghost-wrote a movie that same year that would even add to the breadth of it all, but I don't know if I want to tell you which movie I ghost-wrote. [Laughs]

Movies.com: We'd love to hear about it.
Shyamalan: I ghost-wrote the movie She's All That. [Laughs]

So...that means that dude who wrote The Sixth Sense also wrote this:

Sounds about right.
