WARNING: Major Spoilers Follow!
M. Night Shyamalan's Split is now out in theaters, and fans are buzzing about the film's big twist ending, which reveals that it's actually another story - a supervillain origin story - set within the same universe as Shyamalan's 2000 film, Unbreakable.
With a final button scene featuring a cameo from Bruce Willis reprising his role as David Dunn, it would seem that Unbreakable 2 is at long last in position to happen - so is it going to?
Speaking with EW about the revelations of Split's ending, M. Night Shyamalan confirmed that he has a "robust outline" for the Unbreakable 2 script, and that he's committing to work on it soon. When asked specifically if the sequel is going to be made, Shyamalan answered, "I hope so. The answer is yes. I’m just such a wimp sometimes. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I go off in my room, a week after this film opens, to write the script. But I’m going to start writing."
He later added that - despite the sixteen years of potential brainstorming time - getting that script right may be a challenge: "...now the standards for my outlines are higher. I need to know I’ve won already. I’m almost there but I’m not quite there."
