    Nah, hopefully all of his flops have convinced him that it's time to ditch the "twist" style.. I doubt The Last Airbender will have a twist tothe story so it could work..

    Hmm.. on imdb, Dev Patel (Slumdog) is listed to play Zuko though.. But damn, this is Disney Channel casting..

    On a tangent, I had heard that M Night was going to direct Life of Pi.. looks like that's no more but I'm almost certain they have to cast Dev Patel asPi Patel.. Perfect age and no more famous a brown actor right now..

    Well, anyways.. this movie could work and since there's less emotional ties to the story/characters since it hasn't been around forever, casting can bemore flexible than it was for DB.
    I just hope M Night captures the spirit of the tv show.. It was different ya know? Definitely didn't feel like a Disney show or anything..
