Shyamalan Still Wants to Do Unbreakable 2

Hey, kids, remember when everyone thought M. Night Shyamalan might be the next Steven Spielberg? He sure seemed on his way after “The Sixth Sense”, “Unbreakable”, “Signs”, then … well, it kept getting worst, didn’t it? Shaymalan is currently knee-deep in his live-action adaptation of the popular anime “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, a movie that could be really great or really, really bad (a coin toss situation that’s haunted Shyamalan over his last few movies, unfortunately), but in an interview with MTV, it appears the director is still mulling over the idea of an “Unbreakable” sequel.

Shyamalan tells MTV:

“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.

Well, that’s pretty much it. No real change from the last time he spoke about doing a sequel last year, though it seems like Shyamalan is willing and ready, if only he can figure out where to go.

Maybe he can ask the trees for help? I’m just saying. I mean, trees. Geez, M. Night, what were you thinking?

  • The Strongest There Is…

    Before Shyamalan does any more movies, he needs to strike a deal with a company that can market his movies for what they really are. I say that he hasn’t made a bad movie yet (Not saying that they were great!) But he has one of the most awkward problems with films: THEY ARE ALWAYS MARKETED AS HORROR! I mean, every movie he does, is marketed as “from THE director of the sixth sense, comes a new Horror epic, Made of Horror and washed down with the Nightmares that bring horror a new name….Horror!” Lady in the Water was a fairy tale (uplifting movie), Unbreakable was even marketed as a horror film at first, The village was a social commentary, and so was the Happening. I’m waiting to see if they will find some way to put a horror tone on Avatar. Shyamalan also suffers from the “now im going to hate you” disease that alot of suck ass bandwagon jumpers subscribe to. He and Dane Cook should make a movie.
