Spoiler Warning! I have to assume that if you clicked into this story, you understand WHY we would be talking about Unbreakable 3. The floodgate has just been opened by director M. Night Shyamalan, who has started sharing MAJOR details about his plans for the Unbreakable universe. So, if you do NOT understand why we are talking about Unbreakable 3, you MIGHT want to stop reading. Seriously. And go see Split.
OK, as you know, M. Night Shyamalan's Split exists in the Unbreakable universe. Not only is it the unofficial Unbreakable sequel that we have been waiting 15 years for, it's also a set up for Unbreakable 3, which will center around the three dominant figures of David Dunn (Bruce Willis), Kevin/The Beast (James McAvoy) and Mister Glass (Samuel L. Jackson). Audiences and film writers have been sitting on this news since last year, and now that the movie is out and the ending of Split is making the rounds, Shyamalan sat down with MTV for a SPOILER-FILLED conversation where he confirmed that Unbreakable 3 is happening, it will star Willis, McAvoy and Jackson, and it will be approached by the director in this way:
M. Night Shyamalan went on to confirm that he currently has a 9- to 10-page treatment of an outline for this next chapter in the ongoing saga, though he stopped short of giving any real details. When MTV pressed him on what David Dunn has been doing this entire time, he stopped short of revealing any details, though earlier in the podcast, he did confirm that he filmed a scene for Split that would have directly referenced the ongoing battle between Dunn and Mister Glass (Samuel L. Jackson). As for whether or not Unbreakable 3 will be Shyamalan's next movie, the director went so far as to say:
But Split earning $40 million at the box office, enough for M. Night's first weekend win in years, likely is incentive enough for the studios involved to keep Shyamalan in the Unbreakable 3 business. What do you think? Are you excited to see how this potential trilogy eventually concludes?
