M. Night Shyamalan says Unbreakable 2 is still a possibility

01.30.2015

M. Night Shyamalan isn't exactly on anyone's must-see list in the wake of AFTER EARTH, THE LAST AIRBENDER and THE HAPPENING, but that doesn't mean the man hasn't stayed busy. Right now he's doing work on the TV show Wayward Pines, and this September will see the return of his low-budget film affair in THE VISIT. However, the question of whether or not he would return to the world of UNBREAKABLE still comes up, and it seems as though that's a project he hasn't completely written off yet.

Whether or not M. Shyamalan still considers doing an UNBREAKABLE sequel:

Yeah, I do sometimes. I love those characters and I love that world. Of course, the whole world makes comic book movies now. At the time, it was completely novel. I remember when I made it, Disney was literally like, “Comic books?! There’s no market for comic books!” That’s all they make now! It was a hilarious conversation. I remember it. I was like, “Maybe you’re right. Maybe nobody will come see comic book movies.” They were like, “Those are people in little conventions who like comic books.” And I was like, “But, I like comic books!” But the beauty of the world of Unbreakable is that you’re playing it for reality. It should never feel like a comic book movie. It feels like a straight-up drama. It’s real. You’re confronting the possibility that comic book characters were based on people that were real. That’s the premise, so the tone has to be super grounded. It would be cool.

Shyamalan delivered a hell of a hat trick with THE SIXTH SENSE, UNBREAKABLE and SIGNS. Now whether or not it has really been studios to get in his way or himself, the quality of his films have taken a dive. One thing's for certain: the man needs to step away from the big budgets for the time being and deliver the type of films he became known for. Hopefully his latest venture, THE VISIT, will be exactly that. And if he decides to make an UNBREAKABLE 2 some day, well, I wouldn't hate that idea.

THE VISIT is scheduled to hit theaters on September 11, 2015.

Once again, please?!?

I want this so badly but at this point I have real reservations about Shyamalan helming it. That is so weird to think about but if The Visit isnt a real return to form, I say let it die or find someone who is capable of expanding that amazing universe.

Well he better do it soon actually, but with Bruce Willis phoning in roles & Samuel L Jackson being a huge part of the MCU, it's a little too late. Kinda sad really though because Unbreakable is my favorite M. Night movie.

I actually really enjoyed Unbreakable. I also think he's a talented filmmaker, haven't seen any of his recent stuff, so can't really say where he went wrong, but I'm in for a sequel. Probably would have to be made on the cheap, and not sure that would suit Willis even if he has become a direct to video actor

A little too late I'm afraid. Him and Willis have really turned their careers into garbage since the first film came out.

You've lost your touch, M. Night. It's time to call it quits.

Bruce Willis needs this as much as Shyamalan. Make it so, Captain Picard.

Long overdue

Should have happened years ago but bound to happen now. He can't buy a hit at the minute, Willis is on the fast track to out Nicolas Caging Nicolas Cage & Jackson is in everything.

Even thought Unbreakable is one of my fav movie, I think Bruce's ego will not fit in part 2. A recast would be a good idea .

That's true. After Earth and The Last Airbender both made me leave thinking I wasted my money.
