David Dunn may be unbreakable, but our fragile fanboy hearts are not. “Unbreakable” fans across the globe have long suffered waiting for news about a possible sequel to the 2000 superhero film. Recently, excitement built up to a fever pitch when it was revealed that M. Night Shyamalan will reunite with Bruce Willis for an unknown project.
But that project isn’t “Unbreakable 2,” sadly. In fact, it doesn’t sound like an “Unbreakable” sequel is in the cards for the immediate future.
MTV News caught up with Shyamalan during a press junket for “The Last Airbender” and asked the filmmaker if he’s given any further thought to continuing the tale of the unbreakable David Dunn. Shyamalan said he’s not closed off to the idea of a sequel, but it’s all a matter of finding the right story.
“I just have to think of the right story,” said the filmmaker. “If I think of the right story — and by that I mean something that resonates with me right now, you know, at my age and where I am and what movie I’ve come off of — if I can do that, then I’ll get really excited and I’ll write a draft and I’ll go beg Disney for us to be able to make it.”
Shyamalan said that he’s still considering an “Unbreakable” sequel as recently as June of last year. Additionally, Bruce Willis told us in February that he had recently discussed the possibility of another go at “Unbreakable” with the “Airbender” director.
“I talked to [Shyamalan] over the holidays, and he is still thinking about doing the fight movie between me and Sam that we were going to do,” Willis said at the time.
