Andy Thomas writes in the Swirled News website that special manmade crop circle formations will be produced for the upcoming Hollywood film ?Signs,? starring Mel Gibson and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, who made ?The Sixth Sense.? The film will open in the U.S. in the summer of 2002.
In its February 2002 issue (no. 152), the English magazine ?Empire? has a photo of Mel Gibson standing in a field of corn and says, ?Disney may (or may not) be hyping the flick by planting fake crop circles in South Africa.? In the newspaper ?USA Today,? Shyamalan says, ?We actually made them all in the fields — we contracted out to some guys a couple of galaxies away.?
