Director M. Night Shyamalan is giving it another shot - and he's got the firepower behind it.

The Sixth Sense director has teamed up with actor Joaquin Phoenix to work on a new thriller movie, according to Deadline Hollywood. The two previously worked together on Shyamalan's Signs in 2002.

Horror/thriller producer Jason Blum will also produce the film. Blum and Shyamalan have finished working together on The Visit, which Shyamalan directed. The film premieres on September 11.

Shyamalan's movies have received generally unfavorable reviews as of late - epitomized by 2010's The Last Airbender - but with the Oscar-nominated Phoenix and thriller expert Blum on board, his new project shows strong promise.
