With the ability to tell a story using more than one medium, M. Night Shyamalan has the brilliant idea for his sequel to the superhero story Unbreakable.
Check out the trailer for this film starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson:
Since comic books already appear in a more episodic format, Shyamalan hopes to continue the tale though television, which he feels would be a more fitting form.
"Could you do a six-episode Unbreakable series on Netflix or HBO? Yeah! That's cool. I even had an idea of doing a story that goes in one form, and a second part that's in another form, and a third one's in a different form. You never do the same form. It would be like, movie, then, let's say, cable, to TV, whatever, and then a play; it goes straight online, and it finishes like that. It's in four different forms, and it never goes back to the old one. It could be kind of cool."
Shyamalan already has a place in television with Wayward Pines, and perhaps if that is received well, Unbreakable will have a strong chance of being made into a series.
Let's face it. We love curling up on our couches with some cookies and milk, and binge-watching TV shows like there's no tomorrow. And it seems Shyamalan wants to cater to our needs.
