M. Night Shyamalan‘s Split sequel won’t be restrained to the small budget of its predecessor. Blumhouse produced the horror thriller, which follows a man with 23 distinct personalities who kidnaps three girls, for just $9 million, which is actually a bit bigger than some Blumhouse productions. That movie went on to earn a whopping $275 million worldwide in theaters, prompting a sequel titled Glass (the reason for that title is, of course, a spoiler). The filmmaker is currently developing the sequel, but now we have word that the film will not be a conventional Blumhouse low-budget production.

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.)
