M. Night Shyamalan is already teasing ideas for a Split sequel

Admit it, if I were to tell you that M. Night Shyamalan’s multiple-personality thriller SPLIT was going to sit at the top of the box office charts for the 3 consecutive weeks, you would have called me a liar. However, along with several other surprises to the start of 2017, here we are. Could it be that M. Night is on the cusp of making a major comeback? Will the Hitchcockian-inspired director continue to deliver twists that will boggle the minds of theatergoers? Only time will tell, but one thing is for sure, Mr. Shyamalan is feeling quite frisky after his recent success, as evidenced by this tweet from his account which was posted on February 4th, 2017.

Ah, way to be as cryptic as ever, Mr. Shyamalan. What do you all think this could mean? One would ponder that the enigmatic yet ofttimes predictable director is planning a direct sequel to the James McAvoy-led thriller SPLIT, however, those who’ve seen the film might suspect that he’s speaking in reference to one of his older film projects. Obviously, I’m not going to spoil anything here, but let’s just say that I’d be pretty jazzed to hear of a follow-up film to one of Shyamalan’s … sturdier cinematic endeavors.

What do you all make of this? Have you been to the cinema to check out SPLIT yet? Do you think M. Night still has the chops for creating worthwhile narratives or did his mystery-with-a-twist formula fizzle out for you long ago? While I must admit that I don’t find myself getting excited by anything Shyamalan-related, these days, history has proven that talented directors are more than capable of roaring back onto the scene with advantageous stories to tell and loose ends to wrap up. I mean, DEVIL was okay, I guess, and I’ve heard that THE VISIT was decent. I don’t know, though. After bombs like THE LAST AIRBENDER (hang your head in shame for this one, sir), THE HAPPENING, and AFTER EARTH, I’d have thought that M. Night’s time in the spotlight was retired. However, visionaries have pulled themselves from bigger fires in the past, so I say let’s give Mr. Shyamalan a chance to redeem himself and see if he’s got a few more ideas worth exploring in that sinister brain of his.

The same, in that order. Unbreakable, The 6th Sense, Signs.
And I like The Village as well, no matter what most people say.

Seems very obvious to me

It's an Unbreakable sequel outline. I wouldn't say Split was a true sequel to Unbreakable. He's also said in other interviews after Split came out he has a huge outline for the Unbreakable sequel.

Gosh, I sure hope everyone who has read your comment watched Split -- After Steve Seigh went to so much trouble NOT spoiling things, you just throw it out there. It seems obvious to EVERYONE who has seen Split, dude. Not just you. Steve was intentionally trying not to spoil it for those who haven't seen it yet, lol.

ehhh - this comment isn't that spoilery. All you learn is that there's a connection between the two. If I had known that going in, it wouldn't have really spoiled much.

If you don't want to be spoiled, then don't read a news article and the comments to the article for a Split sequel before you see Split. Seems obvious, no?

Oh, I've seen Split!

That was just me soapboxing because the author of the article painstakingly avoided making the connection so as not to spoil it and you hopped in like a 5 year old with a secret and blabbed it out! But whatevs, man, I digress -- no harm done, I'm just being a jerk now, lol
