M. Night Shyamalan likes Patton Oswalt's ideas for two Unbreakable sequels

03.06.2015

 

Patton Oswalt is a movie geek of the highest order. His two memoirs prove he knows quite a bit about film and pop culture and he has cropped up everywhere from JUSTIFIED to AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. So, when he makes an appearance on a movie website and says he has a plan for how to continue M. Night Shyamalan's UNBREAKABLE, you better pay attention.

Screen Junkies featured Oswalt on one of their recent videos where he outlined a pretty stellar plot for not only UNBREAKABLE 2 but a third film to finish the trilogy. Even as recently as a couple of months ago, Shyamalan said the long gestating sequel was not outside the realm of possibility. So, why not go with Oswalt's idea? Check out a summary below.

In the first sequel, since Mr. Glass is in an asylum, David Dunn realizes that Glass has found other “Unbreakables” around the world. This evidence is seen at the end of the first movie. So basically Unbreakable 2 is a recruitment of the real life Justice League. It ends with Dunn killing, or allowing one of his members to be killed, thereby putting everything he believes into question.

Unbreakable 3 would see Mr. Glass get out of the asylum. While in there, he’s been meeting new and interesting villains so he’s got his own super team. The main plot would then involve them trying to steal David Dunn’s blood so Mr. Glass could become Unbreakable.

To make things even cooler, Shyamalan responded on Twitter and then Patton Oswalt replied to him!

I have always liked UNBREAKABLE the most out of M. Night Shyamalan's films and it seemed like the natural candidate for further movies. Oswalt's ideas are not completely out there and the fact that they don't rely on insane plot twists means Shyamalan should absolutely consider them. Like Oswalt said, he wasn't kidding with his ideas. Maybe these two should meet up and hash this out. What do you think?

Okay. First of all, Unbreakable worked because it was not a movie about superheroes, it was a movie about the myth of superheroes. Turning it into a team-up comic book movie is ridiculous. It's been done before in Heroes. No, the second movie should be about Dunn's life in his old age, having passed his prime, and as his exploits became some kind of urban legend, he seemingly just disappeared into obscurity. Then we find out that his wife died of cancer, he lost his job, and his son became a

Then we find out that his wife died of cancer, he lost his job, and his son became a drug addict. Meanwhile science has found a miracle drug that slowly cured Mr. Glass' condition, who is currently serving a life sentence but managed to gain popularity by publishing books about Dunn and his theories on superhero myth. He seem repentant and there has been talks about him getting a sentence remission. Dunn finds out that he become more frail as Glass become stronger, his life shatters as Glass' condition improves. As the story progressed, we start questioning whether the myth is true, whether Dunn is really unbreakable, and whether the role of hero and villain has been reversed.

These ideas aren't bad at all. Perhaps Unbreakable 2 and 3 will give M. Night a chance to finally redeem himself.

That actually sounds like an awesome premise to complete the Unbreakable trilogy. I love that movie, it's actually one of my favorite M. Night movies, hopefully it can become his comeback film.

It's not an awful idea, but it's not the route I would go. This is more like The Avengers series, but if sequels were to happen they should be more like The Dark Knight series. But with there already being so many comic book films and the lack of quality output from Shyamalan and Willis recently, I'm more than happy with Unbreakable being a fantastic stand-alone movie.

No thanks.

These ideas are vague, random and too obvious.

I'd be the first in line to see this!

Regardless of where Night's career has gone as of late Unbreakable is his true masterpiece. Its a film that honestly is worth studying from every angle...yeah, its that good. Its a perfect example of how everything and I mean EVERYTHING in that film is being utilized to tell the story not just the actors and dialogue. And it was ahead of its time coming out before the comic book renaissance was fully ushered in. I've always wanted to see the story continued and I think Oswalt's ideas are

Give the guy a cameo as one of the Unbreakables. This would actually be a good career move for Night. I'd be the first in line.

I'd love to see another Unbreakable film but that idea's fucking retarded.

It sounds better than anything Shyamalan's put out in the past 5 years

I could get into an UNBREAKABLE sequel if it's done well, and Oswalt's synopses have potential. The crucial part is in the execution . . . and getting Bruce Willis to behave like a professional actor again.

No, just plain no. Keep it a small character piece.

Modern day superhero team? No! Just have David Dunn moonlighting as a vigilante, maybe even do an investigation of some sort. Keep it small!!

Would've wanted these movies like ten years ago

"Unbreakable" was way ahead of its time, a man becoming a 'superhero' in the real world, played like an elegant character study. Since then the approach has been done and repeated to a tiresome point, a sequel would really be nothing special in modern cinema. To echo Samuel L Jackson's opinion, Night should've put his money where his mouth was and made those movies back in the day.

Oh great more magic blood ideas is Orci and Kurtzman involved as well? Maybe Mr Glass can steal Kahn and Spider-Man's blood while he's at it.

Well the fact that he's basing that concept on a line from the actual film which came out in 2000 long before Kurtzman and Orci rose to screenwriting prominence essentially nullifies your point.
