it's not like he has burnt himself out on drugs or booze or has had a debilitating illness, and has actually physically destroyed himself. He can always make a creative comeback if he gets his attitude right. If anything, it may have been a little bit of an ego problem he had, always pushing for the original screenplay written solely by himself, which is to be lauded in this world of recycled ideas, but if your results are not chiming as well as they used to, you should be open to collaboration.
So, it is a very good sign that he has allowed someone else to have a pass at the script.
The Happening had a great sci-fi concept at the heart of it, it just that the execution of the script and the diretcing was way off, so he still has the original ideas there, he just needs to get to the place where he can carry them out to their full potential.
