Night Chronicle 3 (aka. Unbreakable 2)
« on: September 03, 2010, 04:53:54 PM »
There is an article on the home page that reveals the basic idea for the third movie in The Night Chronicles. It will be a movie, based on the screenplay that M. Night had for an Unbreakable sequel. Here's the article:

MTV Movies recently had the chance to sit with Writer/Director/Producer M.Night Shyamalan where Shyamalan was again asked about the possibility of a sequel to his 2000 dark superhero film ?Unbreakable?. Previously M.Night Shyamalan stated that he is looking for the right story for ?Unbreakable 2″, yet we were not sure if M.Night Shyamalan was seriously considering a sequel to Unbreakable.

It?s a great news for all the fans out there because M.Night Shyamalan revealed that his ?Unbreakable 2″ story will indeed hit the big screens, but as a completely different film.

?I cannibalized the idea for the sequel to ?Unbreakable? for one of the ?Night Chronicles,?? revealed Shyamalan.

?It was such a cool idea for a villain, and it was actually originally in the script for ?Unbreakable,? and it was too much,? he said of his reasons for excising the element that was intended to become ?Unbreakable 2.? ?There were too many villains, so I pulled this villain out and was like, ?I?ll make this the second flick.??

However, as the filmmaker got caught up in other projects and ?Unbreakable 2″ became less likely, the seed of that idea still managed to grow.

?I fleshed it out more and more, and thought, ?This could be a standalone movie,?? he said. ?I?ll just say it: the third ?Night Chronicles? movie is what would have been the sequel [to 'Unbreakable']. So now I need to come up with a new idea.?

Shyamalan also semi-validated ?Unbreakable? fans? appreciation for the 2000 film, admitting that it?s also one of his own favorites.

?Literally, that?s the question I get asked the most anywhere around the world ? if I?m making the sequel to ?Unbreakable,?? he laughed. ?I love that movie. ?Unbreakable? and ?The Village? are my favorite two movies of mine.?


Right now, I believe that there is never going to be a sequel to Unbreakable, but at least we will get a view of what the sequel would look like! Maybe this is even a better idea than making a sequel to a movie that is already 10 years old (I know it is not rare to have, like, 10 years between a sequel, but still).

What do you guys think?

Nice! It'll be interesting to see what he had in store for what would have been Unbreakable 2.  Loved the first!

i've said it before on this forum...i'd love to see an Unbreakable 2....but i also recognize how great the story would have to be...because the original is so good.

so i doubt we will see it...at least not in the traditional sense...but hey they made a sequel to wall street llike 20 yrs later!

Yeah. And I think it is pretty safe to say that the Night Chronicles will not have a second movie. :(
Haven't heard about Reincarnate in ages.
