Spoiler Warning: Unless you're some kind of internet guru, you probably already know the big ending of Split, but in case you don't, you have been warned!
M. Night Shyamalan's latest thriller Split has been doing surprisingly well since it released in theaters, having scored positive reviews with some nice intake from the box office to boot. But when you talk about Split, it's impossible to focus on anything but that ending, which teases a confrontation between the Horde and Unbreakable's David Dunn. Split was secretly connected to the long-awaited Unbreakable sequel, but will that movie actually happen? Shyamalan is definitely interested in making the film, and posted his progress on the Split/Unbreakable sequel.
M. Night Shyamalan posted on to his Twitter page, that he's already got an outline for his next project finished. He's got an 11-page outline completed, and now the next step is actually writing the script. Shyamalan was coy in the post about the specifics of the project to avoid spoiling for anyone who hasn't seen the movie, but if you have seen Split then you totally know what he's talking about: an unbreakable Bruce Willis vs a batshit crazy James McAvoy. Yes, we want that very much, please.
At first, it wasn't totally clear if the appearance of Bruce Willis' Unbreakable character in the secret ending of Split was more than just a nod to Shyamalan's own 2000 superhero thriller. Since then, the director has stated that he would definitely like to make David Dunn V The Horde his next film, and that he already had the idea for a long time. Given the popularity of Split, that movie is more than likely going to be a reality. Which is great news for all of us, because how can you tease an ending like that and not follow through with it?
Split was a great thriller in its own right, but the fact that it's a part of the same universe as Unbreakable is incredibly exciting. The inevitable crossover movie has a huge advantage because now that movie doesn't have to spend time setting up the villain. Split already did that for it, and now audiences can go in knowing everything they need to about the Horde, while being able to focus more time on what David Dunn has been up to. Did he continue his vigilante career or did he give up for some reason? Fingers crossed that Samuel L. Jackson comes back for a Mr. Glass cameo (#What'sMr.GlassBeenUpToTheseDays?).
There's going to be a lot more updates on this project, so make sure to keep checking in with CinemaBlend and we'll keep you updated with more information as it becomes available.
