Before M. Night Shyamalan basically imploded into himself in one inept and repetitive execution after another he made Unbreakble. That film kind of concluded perfectly and a sequel would most likely ruin it, but evidently people have been asking about it since the ending was a bit open. To that Mr. Shyamalan says he’s been thinking about it too.
The director, while speaking to Collider about his upcoming show Wayward Pines, said that Disney was skeptical about making a comic book movie back then, which is hilarious since that’s a massive part of their portfolio now. However, even if the film got off the ground Shyamalan says it wouldn’t resemble today’s comic book films.
“It feels like a straight-up drama. It’s real. You’re confronting the possibility that comic book characters were based on people that were real. That’s the premise, so the tone has to be super grounded. It would be cool.”
Before you get excited lets remember that Shyamalan is responsible for destroying The Last Airbender and directing the sub par After Earth. Unless Wayward Pines proves otherwise the guy had one trick and its gone.
