Shyamalan Still Teasing Unbreakable 2
Even though it’s been years and everyone’s pretty much forgotten about it, M. Night Shyamalan hasn’t given up on making more Unbreakable. Talking to MTV he says he’s still considering doing the sequel and adds, “I don’t know where all the parties are in the world. Sam [Jackson] is like ‘Mr. Comic Book’ now. And Bruce, I don’t know what he’s up to. I don’t know where Disney’s at in their head and what kind of movies they’re up for making. But yeah, I love that movie.”
Night has talked about putting together an Unbreakable 2 almost annually since the first movie debuted. For instance around this same time last year he told the very same people at MTV, “I genuinely just asked this question the other day — should I make Unbreakable 2?”
Call me a cynic, but at this point I think he’s just yanking our chain. Shyamalan knows that Unbreakable is the only movie in his catalogue which he could make a sequel to and he also knows it’s something people are interested in. So whenever he wants a little extra publicity from MTV, he wanders in and teases another Unbreakable movie. It’s never going to happen and let’s face it, if it did happen he’d only screw it up. The M. Night who made Unbreakable, one of the best movies of 2000, is long dead, replaced by the guy who makes awful movies about killer plants.
