M. Night Shyamalan discusses Old

When I was thinking of the premise, I wondered whether audiences would be okay without a physical villain. There isn’t a raptor chasing them trying to eat them…it’s time.

Is a 13 years old thinking about vulnerability right now? No, they don’t about anything. They can live forever. 70 to 80 years feels like 4000 years to them. But if I sped it and I have only to nightfall to live, then it suddenly extremely scary for whatever age you are at. So it’s about our relationship to time and do we feel like this is a linear thing that ends and is that the correct way to think.

Sometimes I talk about ghosts but this one is about time.
