M Night Shyamalan says he has treatment ready for his next movie… and we know what it is!

February 15th, 2017 by Shane Michael Comments

The box-office success of M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie Split has meant fans could be in for an unexpected treat.

The film, starring James McEvoy (above), sees three girls kidnapped by a man with a diagnosed 23 distinct personalities, and they must try to escape before the apparent emergence of a frightful new 24th called The Beast. After spending a third week atop the box office, it looks like the thriller could be getting a sequel!

Director Shyamalan posted a message on Twitter (below) over the weekend hinting that his next film will be a follow-up to his current hit


The director is of course referring to the twist ending of Split which revealed that this film takes place in the same universe as Shyamalan’s other hit Unbreakable from 2000. The film’s credits features a cameo from Unbreakable’s protagonist David Dunn played by Bruce Willis which seemingly was included to help set up a further sequel with Dunn facing McEvoy’s antagonist dubbed ‘The Horde’.

I was a huge fan of Unbreakable and when the twist hit in Split, an already great film up until that point, my head was spinning. I’m really excited for the possibility of a sequel. Unbreakable, Split.. I’m calling it now, the third film will be titled ‘Shattered’.
