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.)

If M. Night Shyamalan can’t do it, maybe Patton Oswalt can. The pop-culture junkie and stand up comedian has effectively pitched one crazy, out-there movie in the form of the ultimate Disney mash-up. Today he’s pitching something a bit more manageable: an Unbreakable sequel. Oswalt appeared on Screen Junkies to talk about his dream to see M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable 2 and, as expected, it’s pretty great. Check out the Patton Oswalt Unbreakable 2 video below. Read More »

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Earlier this week, it was reported that M. Night Shyamalan is shopping his next screenplay around Hollywood, trying to find someone to produce his next directorial effort. At the time we knew very little about the project, as that’s the way Shyamalan likes it. Apparently only a few studio execs have read the script, and in every case, Shyamalan’s assistant was in the room to supervise.We dont even have a title, only that the cast will include The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable star Bruce Willis, Gwyneth Paltrow and Bradley Cooper.

We now have a few new details about the project… Well, actually… Russ slipped this update in with the report about the M Night-produced Twelve Strangers, but I thought the bit was big enough for its own story (as some of you might have glossed over the previous story). So if you missed it, hit the jump for more info on Night’s new project.
