Or, How M. Night Shyamalan Risked His Career on a Fairy Tale. Earlier, Night had asked Jim Courier about his tennis career, about his training methods, about the tennis academy he’d attended for high school. Night said he’d followed Courier’s professional career as a player on his own high school tennis team. Night spoke of how he had disliked it when his opponents came on the court with a stack of virgin rackets, aluminum, titanium, whatever.

Night Shyamalan - and you have faith and a vision and something original to say, money will come. But if you’re chasing money, the audience will see you for what you are. Night knew his ideas were no longer making an impact on Nina.
