There are plenty of movies that possess the power to transport nineties kids back to their childhood.

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

Directed by Rob Minkoff, the 1999 American family comedy film is loosely based on EB White’s 1945 novel of the same name and earned generally positive reviews when it was released.

Sure, it may not have been solidified as a bonafide classic in the decades past. Nevertheless, there are some families who still ensure it’s a staple on movie night every so often.

Michael J. Fox is perhaps the most memorable name attached for his work voicing the titular mouse. However, there’s a name attached that will give you quite a surprise. Who wrote the screenplay for Stuart Little?

Who wrote the screenplay for Stuart Little?

The Stuart Little screenplay was co-written by M Night Shyamalan and Greg Brooker.

Yes, that 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.

On the other hand, Shyamalan is arguably one of the most divisive and notable filmmakers of his generation. The 51-year-old American director has helmed such classics as The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, both of which generally remain highly regarded as his best work.

On the other hand, directorial efforts like The Last Airbender, The Happening, and Lady in the Water were slammed by critics and general audiences alike.

His career has undergone more of a resurgence as of late, with some critics having hailed 2015’s The Visit as a return to form. Split and Glass were similarly received while 2021’s Old has opened up the overrated or over-hated debate once again.

‘I was just the kid who made The Sixth Sense’

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

Both efforts highlight the full extent of his talents and he recently opened up about this duality and his status as a thriller/horror director while chatting to NME:

“I’ve become very at ease with it. But there was a side of me – which I’ve since let go of – that was fighting to make family films. This was before I had a relationship with the audience, so they didn’t buck at it. I was just the kid who made The Sixth Sense.”

He added: “It’s really hard to do that with the strong relationship that I have with the audience now.”
