unbreakable sequel

The more M. Night Shyamalan talks continuing David Dunn’s (Bruce Willis) story, the happier we get. Just yesterday it was reported the writer-director completed his 11-page outline for his follow-up to Unbreakable. He’ll typically spend months and months on an outline, but now that his one for Unbreakable 2 is finished, he can begin writing his next movie.

Shyamalan isn’t revealing too many details about the film, but he recently teased an idea for the sequel and how he wants it to stand on its own. Below, the director discusses the Unbreakable sequel. (Spoilers for Split ahead.)

Unbreakable sequel

Ten years ago, an Unbreakable sequel likely didn’t sound too realistic to fans of writer-director M. Night Shyamalan. Every once in a while, Shyamalan would mention the idea. But it’s only recently, after the huge success of Split, that another movie with David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) sounded plausible. Now, the sequel is picking up more momentum, as Shyamalan has completed an 11-page outline for the film.

Below, get an update on the Unbreakable sequel. (Warning: spoilers for Split ahead.)

m. night shyamalan sequel options

M. Night Shyamalan hasn’t shown too much interest in making sequels. (He had one in mind for The Last Airbender, but that didn’t pan out.) In the 18 years since the success of The Sixth Sense, Shyamalan has been lucky enough to write and direct mostly original movies. If there’s one sequel we’d be happy to see him make, though, it’s an Unbreakable follow-up.

While the massive success of some of his earlier movies probably made some studio execs dream of sequels, they could never make one without Shyamalan’s blessing. Below, the director talks about some deals he was wise enough to make early on in his career. (Spoilers for the ending of Split ahead.)

split ending

It should come as no surprise that M. Night Shyamalan‘s Split features a big twist. It’s kind of his thing. Everyone, even his fans, has poked fun at his penchant for Big Shocking Reveals, some of which work as stunning reversals and some of which fall flat on their face. The twist in Split is a weird one – for every person who sees it and loses their goddamn mind, there will be someone who has no idea what the hell just happened.

In other words, it’s the kind of thing that demands to be discussed. Huge spoilers ahead. Seriously. If you haven’t seen Split yet, I’d suggest not reading on.

m night shyamalan stranger things

Before they created Stranger Things for Netflix and won the hearts of everyone with a login to that omnipresent streaming service, Matt and Ross Duffer worked as writers on Fox’s Wayward Pines. And working on that series meant working with M. Night Shyamalan, who directed the pilot and served as an executive producer alongside Chad Hodge. And now that the Duffer Brothers are the ones in charge of a successful television series, Shyamalan would like them to return the favor and let him helm an episode of their show.

Tales from the Crypt comics

From 1950 to 1955, EC Comics published 27 issues of Tales from the Crypt. When a new reboot of Tales From the Crypt was announced, the word was it’d be influenced more by William Gaines and Al Feldstein‘s stories than the HBO anthology series that aired from 1989 to 1996. According to the man spearheading the reboot, director M. Night Shyamalan (Split), the new series will adapt some stories from the comics.

Below, learn more about how the Tales From the Crypt series will take cues from the original comics.

 the Duffer Brothers

Who are the Duffer Brothers? That’s probably a question many people are asking themselves after just having binge-watched their Netflix series Stranger Things. They created the show and directed six out of the eight episodes, yet not many people had ever heard of them before they Netflix’d and chilled. And now that all everyone can seem to talk about Stranger Things, I thought it might be worth taking a look at the guys who made this critically acclaimed series.

Did you know they directed a feature film starring Alexander Skarsgård that you’ve probably never heard of? We have the trailer. Also, I’ve included some of their early short films so you can see how they’ve evolved as storytellers.
