M. Night Shyamalan Announces Sequel to Split and Unbreakable

M. Night Shyamalan’s career has had more twists than the endings to his movies! He scored bigtime early in his career with hits like The Sixth SenseUnbreakable, and Signs before slipping into mediocrity with flops like The HappeningThe Last Airbender, and After Earth. He began to win back fans with 2015’s The Visit, but his real second chance came with this January’s Split. Made on a budget of just $9 million, the movie earned nearly $275 million worldwide! While this may not be enough to wash the taste of After Earth‘s $60 million domestic gross against a budget of $130 million, it’s certainly enough to show that Shyamalan can still make likable and financially successful movies when given a small budget.

Given Split‘s unbelievable success, and its direct reference to 2000’s Unbreakable, its no wonder fans have become rabid over the thought of a sequel film which would bring the two stories closer together and elaborate on both of their successes. Shyamalan took to Twitter today to tell fans that he will be doing just that! His next film will be titled Glass, and it is a direct sequel to Split and Unbreakable. He’s already completed the script and all of both films’ big stars will be back for this production. Here’s all of the details, in Shyamalan’s own words:

Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Anya Taylor Joy all in the same film… there’s nothing like a good Hollywood redemption story! Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more information on Glass as it breaks!

He is particularly interested in the critical and analytical discussion of the best stories the horror genre has to offer. One of his largest works on the topic is a study on the portrayals of people with disabilities in horror films.
