Best news of the night, you say? No problem, I got this one!

M Night Shyamalan has confirmed he’s making the sequel to Unbreakable next!

If you know Shyamalan’s work, you’ll know that he was arguably never better than his first three movies, The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs.

Unbreakable was a movie before its time, turning the superhero genre on its head in a way modern movies can only dream of. It starred David Dunn (Bruce Willis) as a man who, despite being in numerous deadly events, was unscathed. When he meets comic store owner Ejiah (Samuel L Jackson) he starts to get a better idea of who – or what – he really is.

If you haven’t seen it, we recommend you do so immediately.

Anyway, Shyamalan has chatted to Uproxx about his new movie Split, starring James McAvoy, and was asked if he planned on making the sequel to Unbreakable MINOR SPOILERS as Split seems to be set in the same universe MINOR SPOILERS END to which he replied: “I do intend on making a final Unbreakable movie and I’m intending on doing it next.”

Shyamalan has chatted several times about wanting to return to the universe he created in 2000 – here’s him talking about it two years ago – however after the failure of The Happening, The Last Airbender and After Earth it started to look as if it was unlikely to happen.


He’s returned (almost) to his former form with The Visit and Split, so it looks like maybe he’s got some of that trust back.

We would love to see Willis and Jackson back for an Unbreakable sequel;. it’s a universe we REALLY want to see more of.

What about you? Have you faith in Shyamalan again? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
