So if you’re reading this, then presumably you’ve seen Split, the new film from filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. And if you’ve seen Split, you know that Shyamalan managed to stealth-make a new Unbreakable movie, as the ending revealed that the events of Split took place in the same universe as Bruce Willis’ David Dunn, who’s still alive and very aware of the emergence of James McAvoy’s The Horde. So…what’s next?

Fans have been asking for an Unbreakable sequel from Shyamalan for years, and now it seems like he’s finally ready to make a third Unbreakable movie, since Splittechnically counts as the second. Shyamalan teased the following on Twitter:

Hmmm, haven't seen split yet and I really want to. But I'm guessing I've just ruined something in split by stumbling on this thread.

Also I wasn't aware that split was made my M night.
Not sure how i missed that

Samuel L. Jackson on board for Unbreakable 2 :oohyeah:

Via CBR

Don't read if you haven't watched SPLIT

When M. Night Shyamalan’s “Split” released late last month, fans were treated to a huge twist that revealed the film actually takes place in the same universe as the film “Unbreakable.” As it turns out, “Split” was an origin story for The Horde (James McAvoy) and ended with Bruce Willis’ character David Dunn popping up in a diner. With fans now freaking out over another possible “Unbreakable” film, one of its stars has come out to tease the possibility of a future sequel.

Samuel L. Jackson — who starred opposite Willis in the original film — recently spoke to Collider about a sequel, and how he reacted once he found out “Split” was actually connected to “Unbreakable.”


“I got a call and [Shyamalan] said, ‘Call me I wanna talk to you about something.’ And I called him, because I always do when I get a message from him always hoping [it’s Unbreakable 2], and he said, ‘I just did this film called Split, I want you to see it,’ and I was like ‘OK, I’m down with that.’ I had no idea what Split was about or anything else, and he said, ‘We’ll talk after you see it.’ So I went to the arranged screening and I called him immediately and was like, ‘OK dude does this mean what I think it means?’ and he was like, ‘Well first we gotta see how the movie does’. And I think the movie’s done well enough now to merit the ‘OK, let’s put this together.’”

“Split” grossed nearly $173 million worldwide on a budget of just $9 million. Shyamalan has stated that he has an outline for a “Split” sequel that would pair up McAvoy, Willis, and Jackson in one story — although a lot of that is still to be decided, as Shyamalan was only able to use Willis in the film thanks to Disney doing him a favor. With the film now becoming a bonafide success, it’s likely that the studio would want in on any future films.

Jackson was asked about the potential of facing off against McAvoy in a sequel, and said that the actor’s character would make for quite the opponent.

“I think he’s an adequate foe for what Bruce’s Unbreakable character is in terms of him being sort of unbreakable too in that kind of way, and me having found now—****, that would be two people that Elijah would look at and go, ‘Why are they so this and I’m so this on this end of the spectrum?’ It’s just a matter of breaking my ass out of wherever that mental institution was they had me locked up and let’s get it on, let’s see what happens!”


Jackson went on to say that after the film had been such a success, the likelihood of a sequel happening are pretty high, saying that he looks at “the success of that particular film” as a way of saying “I think that we might move forward.” All parties seem willing to come together for another “Unbreakable,” and fans certainly want it, so now the ball is in Shyamalan’s court.

*POSSIBLE SPOILERS FOR SPLIT AHEAD*

In a series of tweets, M. Night Shyamalan has confirmed the following...

A sequel to Unbreakable is complete and Universal Pictures will be releasing it worldwide on January 18, 2019. Both Bruce Willis (David Dunn) and Samuel L. Jackson (Elijah Price/Mr Glass) will return.

If you're yet to see his latest film Split, then please avoid opening the following spoiler...

Glass will also be a sequel to Split, so we'll be seeing the return of James McAvoy (Kevin Wendell Crumb) and Anya Taylor-Joy (Casey Cooke) too. Shyamalan also said "it was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film".

Exciting stuff! :D
