M. Night Shyamalan Says a Full ‘Unbreakable’ Sequel Will Be His Next Movie

The career of M. Night Shyamalan has been a bit of a roller coaster, to say the least. After initially wowing audiences with critically acclaimed classics like The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, he followed up with some good-but-not-great efforts in Signs and The Village.  Unfortunately, then he really fell off the map with dumpster fires like Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender.

His latest effort, Split, has him trending back in the positive. Currently holding a 76% fresh rating on Rotton Tomatoes, the film stars James McAvoy as a man who experiences 23 different personalities inside his own head, each one very different from the last. Like most Shyamalan movies, it contains a twist ending. If you don’t want it spoiled for you, stop reading now.

Seriously, if you have any intention of seeing this movie (and you should), it’s better to have it not spoiled. Click here to go somewhere else.

Still here? Okay then. We warned you.

The final scene in Split has a surprise appearance from Bruce Willis, as he once again plays his modest superhero character David Dunn from Unbreakable. He also mentions “Mr. Glass,” the wheelchair-bound villain from Unbreakable played by Samuel L. Jackson. Obviously, Split and Unbreakable both take place in the same shared universe. And Shyamalan isn’t done visiting it.

“I do intend on making a final Unbreakable movie and I’m intending on doing it next,” the director told Mike Ryan of Uproxx.

“Yeah, I’m still close to Bruce [Willis] and everybody,” said Shyamalan. “And obviously I’m still close to James and still in touch with Sam and all that stuff. So, hopefully that becomes a reality very soon.”

We fully support this awesome idea, as Unbreakable was one of the greatest superhero movies of all-time and vastly different from the standard Marvel or DC Comics films we are now accustomed to.
