More on M Night Shyamalan and an UNBREAKABLE 2...

Hey folks, Harry here with more on M Night Shyamalan and the future of his various endeavors. Now here's the thing... if you listen to these radio reports about Bruce Willis allegedly in negotiations on a follow-up to UNBREAKABLE... well, as much as I'd like that... think about it for a second. A couple days ago we ran a story about M. Night and the possibility of an UNBREAKABLE sequel that would involve Bruce, but not Samuel L Jackson... Well these radio reports reflect that. Then the voice clip of Willis could very well simply be some useful researcher pulling soundbytes from the time of UNBREAKABLE's initial release when everyone was talking of a trilogy. Time will tell to be sure, but take it all as rumor for now....

HARRY

KROQ just reported on their entertainment report that Bruce Willis is negotiating to star in a follow up to Unbreakable. DAAMN that would be sweet. They jsut mentioned him and said nothing 'bout Sam "THE BADDEST MUTH FUCKA ON EARTH" Jackson. Thought you would like to hear that.

Call me BROKE!

and this one....

Harry,

thought you may like to know that a Los Angeles radio station reported this morning that Bruce Willis was currently in negotiations to film Unbreakable 2. They played a clip of him talking about it, but it sounded like it was grabbed from the press junket of the 1st one. They said nothing of Sam Jackson coming back.

WORD TO BIG BIRD

MindEscape

Meanwhile, it seems the 'conversation with M Night' that Stryder sent us the other day was nothing more than a short '10 minute DVD promotional interview... Seems that this is M. Night's latest stump speech....

And from the dark jungles of Mushamboo, a viscous mercenary arose. His name...The Creeper. This time I have some info from M. Night regarding some pretty cool projects. I had the chance to talk with him (briefly....he was pulled after about 10 minutes) about the Unbreakable DVD set that was just released.

Signs: Mel was a last minute addition to film. M. Night had in mind an older actor for the lead character. He was looking at Paul Newman (who said he wasn't interested) or Clint Eastwood (who had scheduling conflicts). When those two were "no-go's" M. Night dropped the age of the character a bit. "Mel was a natural after Mr. Newman declined. They have the same kind of haunted eyes."

Official Indiana Jones word: "I was never contacted formally to do the project, I did publicly express interest, but nothing really ever came to fruition. I have talked with all of them besides George (lucas), and it sounds exciting. They have their ideas and I of course as a fan, have ideas of how they should do it. They will get it done, I just don't think it will be completed for some time. It will probably be the biggest film ever made, I think it would even topple Star Wars and Titanic at this point."

The grand finally....... '

Unbreakable 2: "I have been in contact with the studio about this. Initially they declined a sequel because the film did not really perform like the Sixth Sense. Although, that film performed beyond expectations and they didn't think it would do to well at all, so I don't really understand the logic there. But after the success of the DVD set, they are a little more receptive to the idea. I was always kind of mixed about the prospect of doing a sequel but I had always had little treatments here and there I had jotted down while I was making the first."

"I had actually cut from the film and DVD Deleted Scenes, an alternate ending that was just incredibly open for a another chapter. I would like to see Bruce exploring his powers a bit more, perhaps even becoming over eager to use them. I have talked with him about it and he said he would love to return to the character. Sam, however, has so much going on, I am not sure if we could get him or not. I love the idea of bringing Sam back and having him take in another villain, and train him to do the things he is not capable of doing because of his disability. He would use the pages of his comics to construct the villain himself. Those characters are all so wonderful, it would be cool. But you never know, one day they say no and I say "Ahh come on" and the next day it's the other way around."'

This was the first time, M. Night has ever sounded receptive to the idea. He talks about so many ideas and films he would like to do that, while great to read, leaves me to wonder: Is he an eager film buff anxious to try anything, or is he stringing us along as if we are in his world, his plot, and his direction. One never knows.

The Creeper WILL....return.

    KROQ rarely gets the traffic right; I doubt the veracity of such reports. The whole lot reported here seems hopeful gas. 'Unbreakable' almost requires a sequel, and the most factual statement might be that the studio is more receptive after the performance of DVD sales. (Personal opinion: the biggest surprise Night could pull now is to NOT put in a quasi-Hitchcockian twist ending.) -M.

    Who wants UNBREAKABLE 2?

    by kubrick114

    Wasn't the whole point of the first movie that it DIDN'T GO BEYOND WHERE IT ENDED?! The idea of a sequel completely negates what made the original so *original*! Just my fifteen cents.

  • July 30, 2001, 5:53 p.m. CST

    How would a sequel negate what made the first original?

    by DomisInnerChild

    It still would be a movie that is entirely an origins story. You can argue it is unnecesarry like Rocky 2 (you know something is going to go right for him), but I don't think it could hurt the first film in any way. In fact, I think it would help because it would shut up all the people who complained about the movie ending to abrubtly.

    a KICK-ASS screenplay!!!

    by mistasinister

    If anyone would like to see a kick-ass film get made, one that has a part in it written specifically for Samuel L. Jackson, be on the lookout for "Blood Bankrupt". It's a bounty-hunters-on-the-run screenplay I recently finished writing that I'm about to send out in the hopes of gaining representation for it. I think that it would make for an exciting, wild ride that could possibly spawn sequels. Being a writer, I predominantly write for myself, but being a SCREENwriter, I write to entertain you, the viewer, from start to finish and to keep you guessing as to what in holy Hell is going to happen next. If anyone within the film industry reads this and is at all interested, legit and on the level about wanting to take a gander at my screenplay, I'd love to show it to you. Please contact Brandon Holeman at raginbull@hotmail.com.

    Unbreakable2 hmMMMMmmmmm.....

    by 1stGodling

    Sounds like it would make a great film if properly handled. It is on the top of my Sequel List.A Top ten if you will; 1)Unbreakable 2; 2)Fight Club/round2 3)Deep Rising 2 4)Secret of Nymh 2{a real sequel,not some dizified crap} 5)Ash to Ashes:EVIL DEAD4{willing to trade my soul for it} 6)JP4{I'm gonna get flamed for it, but this is MY list} 7)Matrix2{in this lifetime MAYBE?} 8)Unbreakable 3{heeheheheheh} 9)Peter Pa..oh wait,on it's way!!! Finally .....10)Phantasm 5 Cuz I say so!!! Now go ahead and flame away, but this is my list, and my opinions,which much like my butthole,they probably stink. To each his own. As for the Jenna Bush question, my answer is simple. Her, Her sister, and Her cousin. I unfortunatly have to express that most of the people reading this far might even do her Gramama, But I say the leave the ole'tart ALONE!!! G.N.L.S.

    Unbreakable ruled, but a sequel?

    by neovsmatrix

    I don't know how M. Night can top the first, but if anyone can, he can IMHO. Unbreakable 2 could still be original. The first was an awesome character drama, and the second can continue in the same vein while deconstructing superhero myths, which is what made the first movie so special. Anyway, both Unbreakable AND the Sixth Sense were amazing films. I liked Unbreakable better though. I hope M. Night knows what he's doing though. From what was just reported, it sounds very interesting. In fact, I think that would be the right direction to go in. Where Dunne does use his powers overeagerly and Elijah does train another villain to do his bidding. That would be right in line with what was stated near the end of Unbreakable as a matter of fact. Elijah would be the genius supervillain while also having henchmen do his dirty work. However, I wonder what the alternate ending M. Night allegedly mentioned was? I hope it wasn't the one that was reported earlier where Elijah supposedly had something to do with the villain dressed in the orange jumpsuit. That would be a bit too contrived, and cheapen Dunne's experience IMHO. Unbreakable can easily stand on its own though, and I just hope Unbreakable truly finds an audience through DVD which will hopefully convince Disney to support the sequel should there be one in the works.

    by It Burns to Pee

    I'd love to read your screenplay, just so I can shit on it when I'm finished. I'm sure as far as Sam Jackson is concerned your screenplay could be about Richard Simmons in a wedding dress, and he'd still be just as interested. What I'm trying to say is that Unbreakable two would rock, and that M. Night should write Indy 4.

    Sequels and Lies

    by JonQuixote

    I loved Unbreakable, but the cheesy Dragnet ending and some of the self-indulgent camera angles took away from some of its potential (though it plays MUCH better on the small screen). Still, if Bruce feels the need to make an unnecessary sequel, I'm still waiting for Last Boyscout 2: Baseball Season. "I figure you gotta be the dumbest guy in the world, Joe. You're trying the save the life of the man who ruined your career, and avenge the death of the guy that fucked your wife."

    Who needs Sam Jackson

    by Guderian

    I don't want to say anything bad against the coolest cat in Tinseltown, but the Unbreakable sequel absolutely doesn't need Elijah Price in it. For a hero to grow he needs to face new challenges and enemies. Batman din't face the Joker in every movie, and Beowolf didn't simply keep fighting Grendel over and over. For Dunne to evolve as a hero, he needs to be tested by a new, and more powerful enemy. Consider what are probably the only two superhero sequels that actually add to the mythology of their predecesors, Superman II and Batman Returns. In the first films of both of these series, we get an origin and a confrontation with a villian that is in some way the diametrical opposite of the hero, just like in Unbreakable. In the sequels to each of these two, the characters have grown comfortable with their abilities and their roles as heroes, and so they must face a far greater challenge. In Superman's case, he had to fight General Zod and his followers, three people who were as physically powerful as he was (yes..I know Lex Luthor was in this one too, but he added essentially nothing to the plot, and I can only assume that his return was more about getting Gene Hackman's name on the marquee than adding to the story). In Batman's case, he had to go against both the Penguin and Catwoman, as well as Christopher Walken in a very, very freaky wig. For Dunne to truely come into his own he too must go on to face a more potent foe, preferably one who is in some way his equal rather than his opposite, much the same way as Zod and Catwoman mirrored Superman and Batman's abilities. So as much as I love Mr. Jackson he not only doesn't need to be in the sequel, he really shouldn't be.

    POTA Ending

    by DomisInnerChild

    Don't you mean, the damage control team at Fox has determined the ending wasn't meant to make sense? That's it, that's the ticket. Yeah. It makes you think... about how stupid the ending is. By that logic, Waterworld was a masterpiece. None of it made sense, therefore I thought about how stupid the entire movie was instead of just the ending. Costner is a bigger genius than Burton. Dude, they stuck that ending on as a tip of the hat to the original. But it was cheap gag to create sequels and didn't fit the rest of the movie.

    The real sequel...

    by ARGH!

    The only throwback sequel that really deserves to be made, and I'm talking in terms of both box office numbers, and complete audience satisfaction, would be 3rd installment to the quintessential coming of age masterpiece, Hardbodies! Come on, part two left us on such a cliffhanger! Sure, they won the wet T-Shirt contest, but what happened afterthat? This franchise is begging for a trilogy, maybe even a prequal; we can get Guy Pearce and Christian Bale to star, everyone on this page seems to love them to pieces!

    Unbreakable: Glass's Revenge.

    by rabid_republican

    Okay, try this...Elijah Pryce trains a bruiser of a henchman while in the asylum for the mentally insane. Pryce tells his new student his whole "Mr.Glass" story, detailing his pending revenge on David Dunn, the "Security Man" This little disciple of his escapes his prison. He has a plan to breakout his teacher, but since he's so mentally unstable he decides to go after Dunn himself. This tips Dunn off that a) Pryce is trying to kill him and b) there others with powers out there giving him the full realization that he can't be just a normal guy anymore and must completely develop a hero persona. The cathartic twist would have Mr.Glass killing his own student, so as to save Dunn for himself. It is said heroes are only as interesting as their villians. Well, there have been few more interesting comic villians in recent memory than Mr. Glass. Here's to hoping.__________________________ *Oh* and by the by, the next one of you fanboys threatens the Bush daughters in any way will be summarily sewn into a theater seat with a Clockwork Orange helmet strapped on his noggin and forced to watch a steady stream of the choicest crap from this side of summer 2001 while having a starving weasle shoved down his pants!

    The Viscous Grand Finally

    by Gawain_the_Stout

    ROFL! <br> <br> I don't usually laugh out loud at talkbacks, but I have to admit, I am a grammar junky, and there are so many great slams on poor spellers in this talkback.<br><br> First of all, to stay on topic, I think M. Knight should actually stay away from any sequels for now. He has proven to have a very wide imagination with his last two films... I would like to see him continue to move into new and exciting directions before revisiting earlier works. <br><br> Second: Would a "Viscous Mercenary" be one that lubricates really well? <br><br> And finally -- for my grand finale: All y'all who are about to flame me for hating on your inability to communicate effectively, don't. I reject any pleas of ignorance, indifference, or literary independence. If you think you're grown up enough to post your thoughts on a public forum, then prove your maturity by taking the time to say what you mean correctly and distinctly. Any possible excuse you could have for not using proper grammar or spelling is simply a slam on your own intelligence and education. <br> Peace to the brothers!

    Sam's role in Unbreakable 2

    by matches

    for everyone trying to come up with exciting new ways for elijah price to make trouble for david in this supposed "unbreakable" sequel, what fucking movie were you watching? am i the only one who realized that mr. glass wasn't a "bad guy" in the traditional sense of the word? the things he did were bad, sure, but they were motivated by his desire to find his opposite, i.e. david, not a simple overwhelming need to wreak havoc on the general population. as such, his life of crime - whether he's in a hospital for the criminally insane or not - is effectively over once he's found david. he has no reason to go on blowing shit up, because he's found what he was looking for. that was the whole reason for his crime spree. why would he try to fuck with david now? he doesn't exhibit any kind of animosity or dislike for david in the least - in fact, aside from a little jealousy, he seems to kind of like him.

    Great fuckin talkback already...

    by Bry-Guy

    ...Damn. Within, I guess, about 60 posts, we have a lengthy rip on our Grand Poobah for his lack of quality checking his grammar, wankers talking about doing the Bush daughters, in-fighting(to be expected)...this is entertainment at its finest, folks. Its all due to you guys. I guess it goes to show that NOBODY really cares what anybody else has to say about any of these topics posted for our viewing pleasure, and would rather spend their time shooting everyone else's opinions out of the sky with unoriginal smart-ass comments, trying to make names for themselves and become small-time celebrities in their own right. Good fuckin luck. The only thing these talkbacks are good for anymore is to participate in, or read a good fight anyway. About two percent of these talkbacks are actually valid, unprecedented commentary on the subject given us. The rest is just commentary ragging on other posts, if it's even considered commentary ("first"). I DO have a point. At least at some point there was a possibility that this site, and the voices expressed therein, had some clout in Hollywood. I'm sure of it. I'm sure that the powers that be would have come on under an alias and check out what the REAL movie-going public has to say about the statuses of up and coming projects. They would look to gain true insight as how to entertain us better and get our dollar...which I think would be the smartest thing they could possibly do. They don't want to waste money, and they want our money. That's fine. That's the way the system works. But have you read the majority of these talkbacks lately? They're almost like shout-outs to bullshit. If anyone with clout in the movie-making process ever read these talk-backs, I doubt they do anymore. It's almost a joke now a days. But who cares, right? We are having fun ourselves. If we ruined our chance at being a voice in Hollywood, at least we can rag on Harry's grammar, or talk about fucking the Bush daughters. That's why we came here, right guys?...guys?...

    Oh, and about Unbreakable...

    by Bry-Guy

    ...I believe that Unbreakable deserves another chapter. The original had one of the greatest scenes in any movie, in my opinion. That is where David Dunne can't find a max to his lifting capability and his son backs away. This is only topped by Bud White breaking the chair in L.A. Confidential. I wish Dunne would have been a more effective fighter at the end. If he could put up all that weight, he shouldn't have been man-handled to the degree he was, by that big guy in orange, but I guess there had to be some drama, I mean he's not Batman...at least not yet. Too bad, though, that Unbreakable had the absolute WORST ending of any movie ever, hands down. Just when I was about to climax at the twist and was expecting some final huge action set piece, Shyamalan gave me blue balls with that fucking two paragraph wrap-up. I didn't mind reading my movie in Crouching Tiger/Hidden Dragon, but this ending was completely unacceptable. The discreetly showing the newspaper to son scene was beautiful. The interaction between Mr.Glass and DavidDunne-man was intriguing. The twist at the end was exhaltant. The ending was SHIT! I need to see David Dunne progress with his heroic doings. The character was only vaguely fleshed out. Now that he's not depressed and sullen and quiet anymore, and he knows why and what he is, I want to see him shine as a person in real life and as a hero/superhero. Its the reason why I loved the movie so much. The good deed he did saving that girl was only a whetting of my appetite. I love the concept of who he is. It's not that it's a REAL LIFE superhero story, it's just a DIFFERENT superhero story. It would be "real life" if David only used his powers as a security guard at Veteran's Stadium. Granted, it's different because David's heroic career is not starting when he's just graduated college. He's got all the proper motivation and skill to do what he's called to do. Now I want to see him DO IT! That thought excites me more and more as I think about it. I don't care if he fights Mr. Glass, or some other well done character. I have complete faith in M. Night Shyamalan...well...except for the most dissappointing ending ever, but I don't think he'll do that again. But that's just a hunch. If you don't want to see a sequel, that's fine. I'll go see it again for every person on this site who won't. That's a promise...

    FUCKING POP-UPS!

    by selectd

    Okay first, the idea of making a sequel to this movie without Sam Jackson is ludicrous. The first installment was as much about Elijah developing into a villain as it was David into a hero. Second, the first time I heard about possible sequels was when Bruce Willis said during an on-line chat that Unbreakable was the first part of a trilogy...I think this was on MSN...I actually read the transcript after the chat occurred so, some resourcefulness could probably turn that up. Does anyone else remember reading that? If so, drop me a line. And finally, if your going to have the goddamn adverts pop up, could we have LESS THAN FOUR every time someone hits the home page. It really makes doing this shit at work a chore. For chrissakes, porn sites don't have this many pop up ads.

    Unbreakable is stupid and boring? Sounds like sour grapes to me. If you can't understand it, it just HAS to be stupid and boring, doesn't it? Go on and enjoy trash like the Animal, there are no words to express the contempt I have of people who call a movie like Unbreakable "stupid and boring". In any case, both Unbreakable and the Sixth Sense were amazing movies and neither one detracts from the other's magnificence.

    The Last Boyscout

    by AntoniusBloc

    Bruce Willis gave one of his best performances in The Last Boyscout, but please don't cheapen this classic by making a sequel. Seriously, if you haven't seen the Last Boyscout, watch it. The movie is hilarious throughout, especially on parts where they didnt mean to be funny(or maybe they did, hard to tell).Die Hard 3 seemed like it was almost a "re imagining" of Boyscout, esp. Willis' character, but it turned out much like a more recent re imagined film, and didn't even compare. As for Unbreakable, i think a sequel would be cool, but Mr. Glass must be in it.

    "Unbreakable" the series

    by VarietyWriter

    I think continuing the storyline as a television drama series would work best. It wouldn't be an easy series to develop but if pulled off well it could be quite compelling. If M. Night is unable to get a sequel film off the ground, then he should try to convince Touchstone Television to produce a series pilot for the networks.

    Mike and Marc

    by AntoniusBloc

    Oh yeah, has anyone seen the "Mike and Mark" bit on Letterman about the two geeks that go to comic book conventions? It's kind of funny, but you should see the original Mike and Marc that these characters are based on. One is a big filipino wrestling type who has a furious smile, yet he is very kind. The other, Marc, is sloth like but kind of on the thin side. He reminds me of Mr. Glass. He always looks sleepy,is somewhat of a snob and has tan skin. Marc also uses chicken wing grease as a weapon. First of all, he loves chicken wings. After he finishes eating a wing, he'll place the chicken bone on your wrist. That's how he gets the chicken wing grease on your body.Both of them are ruled by their appetites and slaves to their animal desire. The real Mike and Marc will be at the big "con" in chicago, so look for them. They will be accompanied by a homeless guy, an accountant, and a very single candle store manager who has secret extra marital affairs with his female employees. I wasn't invited because they were not convinced when i tried to explain to them that i don't collect comic books and i didn't when i was younger, although i really enjoyed reading them, and still do once in a while. They couldn't comprehend that i would buy them, read them, and then not put it in a plastic bag.

    Unbreakable 2?

    by Halloween68

    I really liked the first one. Well all the way up to the very end with the stupid dialog posted that tells us what happens next. I thought this was very lame. And it contributed to the worse thing about the movie. I actually know some people who didn't like the film just because of that span of 2 minutes at the end. I guess I just try to forget that piece was even in there. Anyway, I really liked the first and I think a sequel would be really cool. As long as Willis comes back to reprise his role as the main character, I'm up for it. As much as I'd love to see Jackson return, I don't think the film would hinge on that. The story was put together like a dark and serious comic book. And after all, there are many different villains for each comic book hero. Maybe Jackson could come back though for at least just a brief appearance. Be like the main archvillain that sort of hands the ball off for the moment. That would be cool. I really like the way the story is set up, and the direction it's taking. Very cool and very original. I'd definately go see it. I don't know though about the spidey sense in the subway stuff though. I'd move more away from that and concentrate on the whole unbreakable phenomenon. But still, very cool.

    Sam Jackson

    by bogrod

    I totally agree that'd it be cool to have Sam Jackson back in it, but put it this way - more than likely he'd be in prison, and he's not exactly what you'd call a 'tough guy', or the kind of guy who could physically make it through an escape.

    Matches, I disagree

    by DomisInnerChild

    True, Mr. Glass was blowing stuff up to find David and that is no longer necessary. But the point of finding David was so Mr. Glass could find his place in the world... as a villian which he identified with in comic books. The way his warped mind was working was he needed to prove there was an opposite to himself, a hero, before he could accept what he was. That was the point of the handshake, that the game was now on. Mr. Glass had been scripting out their eventual battles in his mind all these years, he just needed to find an opponest.

    UNBEARABLE is more like it.

    by yog-sothoth

    What an attempt to stretch a good idea (The Sixth Sense) until it was nothing but a stringy wad of jizm. But hey don't blame the cat M. Night, t'wasn't his idea to rip out a follow-up to Sixth Sense that was the cinematic equivalent of running out of toilet paper when you have diarrhea. Blame the shit-stuffed suits running the show: "Yeah, M., I can see it now, it'll be like Sixth Sense, but the twist will be that whereas that was a six-year endeavor chockfull of good ideas, this will be a thoughtless, soulless turd. Can you squeeze one out right here, right now? C'mon, baby, PUSH! -Yog

    I just watched Unbreakable again the other night...

    by Bad Guy

    what a cool movie. I would definitely go see a sequel to this, but I think it would have to be more of an action picture and less of a character study. We've already been introduced to the character, his abilities and his motivations, so next time let's just get on with it. I appreciated the way the story unfolded, but I think the pace of the film turned off a lot of people. I think the film works mostly because of Willis. His portrayal of this "everyman" who suddenly finds out that he's been put on this earth for something more is totaly believable. He is one of our more underrated actors and I don't think he's give enough credit because he's also a "movie Star". As great as Jackson was, I don't think that you'd HAVE to have him back for the sequel to work. I think David would have to face some new and bigger challenge. Either way, I'm there.
