M. Night Shyamalan Confirms Work on a Sequel to 2000's 'Unbreakable'
Speaking with Uproxx, M. Night Shyamalan, whose latest film Split is rekindling the love for the director as the film is being touted as his return to form, has said that a sequel to Unbreakable is probably going to be his next film.
For those who have seen Split, there'll be added reason to believe Shyamalan's words, given that the end of Split reveals that it takes place in the same continuity as Unbreakable. Bruce Willis' own David Dunn makes a brief return, which could well tease a world in which he and James McAvoy's Kevin Wendell Crumb meet up.
Speaking to EW, he said, "I don’t know what’s going to happen when I go off in my room, a week after this film opens, to write the script. But I’m going to start writing." On whether he has an outline, he said, "Yeah, definitely. A really robust outline, which is pretty intricate. But now the standards for my outlines are higher. I need to know I’ve won already. I’m almost there but I’m not quite there."
