Coming after Twelves Strangers
With Devil, the first film in M. Night Shyamalan’s “Night Chronicles,” hitting theaters on September 17, the filmmaker revealed to MTV that we’ll see the story he was going to use for Unbreakable 2 in the third movie in the film series.
“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. There were too many villains, so I pulled this villain out and was like, ‘I’ll make this the second flick.'”
Instead, Shyamalan used the villain and story for the film that will come after Twelve Strangers, which is expected to be the second movie in the “Night Chronicles” and concerns a jury deliberating on a case that involves the supernatural.
Since the films in the “Night Chronicles,” so far, have been steeped in our genre, it’s possible this villain could be a boogeyman of sorts in the third Chronicles project.
