In a recent interview with MTV, M. Night Shyamalan talked about his send-up of the superhero genre Unbreakable. He even discusses the possibility of a sequel:
“I tell you I get asked about it all the time, so it’s not [an idea] I ever forget,” Shyamalan told MTV News. “I genuinely just asked this question the other day — should I make ‘Unbreakable 2’?”
Yes. Absolutely you should, Night. Go make it right now. Hurry!
I often feel that I am in the minority on this one, but I think Unbreakable is a remarkably well-made film. It is a thoughtful movie bringing deep consideration to a subject so often discounted as childish. It is a respectful homage to the conceits and mythology of superheroes. I have great affection for Shyamalan’s Unbreakable.
Unlike most of his work, this one is ripe for a sequel. Unbreakable told an origin story. Now, the rest of the tale can be told!
So, Night, drop what you’re doing. Go round up Bruce and Samuel. And make me a sequel!
