Director M. Night Shyamalan contributed to the superhero film genre with Unbreakable, and it turned out to be one of his better efforts in the scheme of things. His new movie Devil kicks off what he hopes will be the Night Chronicles trilogy, however, and the third of those three films could end up using a concept he previously intended to feature in Unbreakable 2.
“I cannibalized the idea for the sequel to Unbreakable for one of the Night Chronicles,” Shyamalan told MTV News.
He admitted that he has yet to decide what he might eventually do instead for an Unbreakable sequel, but he called the movie one of his two favorites (along with The Village) out of everything he’s made.
“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 explained. “There were too many villains, so I pulled this villain out and was like, ‘I’ll make this the second flick.'”
And now you’ll have a reason to watch Devil and the subsequent Night Chronicles installments, for better or worse.
