There are a slew of films that can take nineties kids back to their childhood.

We imagine that many of you who read this have fond memories of sitting cross-legged in front of the television watching Stuart Little, then rewinding the tape when it was finished, only to restart it all over again.

The 1999 American family comedy film, directed by Rob Minkoff, is loosely based on EB Whites' 1945 novel of the same name, which received widespread praise when it was released.

Sure, it may not have been resurrected as a bonafide classic in the decades past. However, there are some families that still make it a staple on movie night every once in a while.

Michael J. Fox is perhaps the most well-known name for his portrayal of the titular mouse. However, there is a catchy twist attached. Who wrote the screenplay for Stuart Little?

Stuart Little's screenplay was created by who?

M Night Shyamalan and Greg Brooker co-written the Stuart Little screenplay.

Yes, M Night Shyamalan.

Greg Brooker is a much more obscure name, but served as the director of 2018's Christopher Robin, Nosferatu L.A. 02, and Birthday.

Shyamalan is arguably one of the most controversial and well-known filmmakers of his generation. He has directed such films as The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, both of which are generally considered as his finest work.

The Last Airbender, The Happening, and Lady in the Water have been criticized by critics and general audience alike.

He has had a greater resurgence in recent years, with some critics humming 2015's The Visit as a return to form. Split and Glass were similarly praised, while 2021s Old has reignited the debate over whether or not he is a good man.

We talk about George Miller's work on Mad Max and Babe Pig In The City, but we're not aware of how M Night Shyamalan wrote Stuart Little.

I was the kid who made The Sixth Sense.

The Sixth Sense stands out as Shyamalan's breakthrough film, and it's interesting to note that the supernatural chiller was released in the same year as Stuart Little.

Both projects highlight the breadth of his abilities, and he recently talked about this duality and his role as a thriller/horror director with NME:

Ive become quite at ease with it. But there was a part of me that I have since let go of that was attempting to make family films. This was before I had a relationship with the audience, so they didnt buck at it. I was the kid who made The Sixth Sense.

With the close working relationship I have with the audience, he added: It's extremely difficult to accomplish this.
