M Night Shyamalan has once again raised the topic of potential sequels to his 2000 film Unbreakable. The rather unfairly dismissed follow-up to The Sixth Sense was always intended as the first part of a trilogy but Shyamalan instead went on to make other films that never quite recaptured the magic of his breakout hit. Sci-Fi Wire have the full info.

I don't think he should do a sequel... If he had set Unbreakable up for a sequel then maybe.

An Unbreakable sequel has the potential to be amazing, especially since the first movie was -in my opinion- a fantastic, gritty, beautiful, and an incredibly underrated movie.

While not my favorite film, I really liked the first "Unbreakable" film. Should be cool to see what M. Night Shyalaman comes up with if this is indeed his next film, especially as I didn't like his most recent films ("Lady in the Water" and "The Happening") at all, to be honest.

I saw Unbreakable for the first time recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. It would be his first sequel and I think he could build well on the first one, considering it was little more than a long "origins story", to use the super-hero archetype. However, he wouldn't have the twist of the first film going for him anymore.

I don't think Unbreakable was all about the twist though, the whole film was exploring the concepts of heroes and antiheroes in as real a way as has been done so far. I think there are plenty of themes that could still be explored in sequels with the same cast etc (though Spencer Treat Clark must be getting on a bit by now...)

Great film, my favourite M Night movie.

I think this should be at *least* as enjoyable as taking a nap.

I've never heard him called "Shy" before; cast and crew always refer to him as "Night" on the dvd's.

I loved Unbreakable. I'm not really hoping for a sequel, but if it happens, I'm sure I'll watch it. And 99% sure I'll enjoy it.

The Sixth Sense was my favorite of his movies. Unbreakable was good, but I HATED the ending. The Village was pretty good. I though Signs was HORRIBLE, and I haven't seen Lady in the Water or The Happening.

I would like to see a sequel to Unbreakable. The first one, like jmax says, was kind of a long origin story, and I'd like to see them follow up on it.

I just saw Unbreakable today. I'd like to see M. Night try for a sequel, if he could make it a tad faster, and if the story was as engaging. At the same time, I'm also worried that, with the track record of his recent movies, he'll mess up a good opportunity.

I just saw The Happening as well. At first I liked it, even though the acting was a bit weak and the concept was a bit far-fetched (I didn't care about the far-fetched part because I expected some more explanation in the end), but as it approached the end it started getting worse and worse and the ending itself was TERRIBLE.
