Shyamalan On UNBREAKABLE II: ‘I Want To Write It Right Now’!!

I am – Hercules!! While promoting the “Happening” Blu-ray release via conference call, M. Night Shyamalan said he’s finally keen again to pursue a sequel to his superhero drama “Unbreakable.” From
"I want to write it right now, but I want to write it for the right reasons. I want a story to pop into my head that is organic and expressive of who I am. You know, these are all kind of journals of where I am emotionally, so it's kind of hard. I'm kind of trying to go back to the journal that existed in 1999 for me. But I know me: As soon as I give up on it is when the idea will come to me.”
The writer-director said he had cooled to the idea of planned sequels following “Unbreakable’s” theatrical release because he felt audiences weren’t enthusiastic enough about the original -- but now he senses esteem for the 2000 tale of David Dunn and Elijah Price may have grown sufficiently. “I'll be on the street, and some kid will run across traffic with it in his backpack--he just is carrying it in his backpack--and he'll be running [saying], 'I can't believe it's you!' Will you sign my Unbreakable DVD?' And quoting the thing and all that stuff." Find all of scifiwire’s story on the matter here.
