Budget impasse forces Shyamalan movie from Pa.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - August 25, 2009

The upcoming thriller by M. Night Shyamalan is moving production from Philadelphia north to Toronto.

Officials with the state film office say that's because of uncertainty about whether Pennsylvania's film tax credit will be approved in the budget.

The budget has been in limbo for nearly two months.

Shyamalan lives near the Philadelphia suburb of Malvern and has filmed eight of his nine movies in the region, including "The Sixth Sense," starring Bruce Willis.
