Speaking at a press conference for his upcoming movie ‘The Fighter’, Mark Wahlberg hit the nail on the head by admitting how immensely sh*t M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘The Happening’ was (he wasn‘t quite that harsh). When asked to talk about his co-star Amy Adams, Wahlberg revealed that they had met previously for ‘The Happening’, which Adams eventually dropped out of and was replace by Zooey Deschanel:

‘I was such a huge fan of [Amy Adams]. We’d actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie, and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. I don’t want to tell you what movie… All right, The Happening with M. Night Shyamalan. It is was it is. F*cking trees, man, the plants. F*ck it. You can’t blame me for wanting to try to play a science teacher. You know? I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook.’

I’ve got a lot of time for Mark Wahlberg, it’s rare to see an actor tell it how it is. ‘The Happening’ was a huge, steaming, smelly turd of a film if there ever was one, it made Shyamalan’s previous shit film, ‘Lady In The Water’ look like a masterpiece. Hats off to Wahlberg!
