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?
