Unbreakable 2 becomes Night Chronicles film

Shyamalan “cannablised” sequel for new film


Unbreakable 2 may never see the light of day according to M. Night Shyamalan – because he’s “cannibalised” ideas he had for the super sequel and used them in the next instalment of his Night Chronicles movies.

The first movie he’s produced under the banner The Night Chronicles, Devil, opens on 17 September. And while out on the publicity trail, Shyamalan revealed that he’ll be using a villain he originally dreamed up for Unbreakable 2 in one of the Chronicles movies instead.

“I cannibalised the idea for the sequel to Unbreakable for one of the Night Chronicles,” he says. “It was such a cool idea for a villain, and it was actually originally in the script for Unbreakable, and it was too much.

“There were too many villains, so I pulled this villain out and was like, ‘I'll make this the second flick.’”

This villain will apparently be used in the film Twelve Strangers instead, which will be the second movie in the Night Chronicles.

Considering Night’s track record of late (The Last Airbender is the worst-reviewed film of the year thus far), fans of the brilliant first Unbreakable are surely sighing with relief that their favourite movie won’t be dragged down by a sequel.
