One thing about M. Night Shyamalan’s ersatz 2000 superhero film Unbreakable is that it feels like the first act of a standard superhero origin film in which the hero slowly discovers his superpowers. Shyamalan has stated since the film came out that while he had not originally envisioned a film trilogy with the film’s stars Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson as the self-discovered hero and his nemesis, it has been occasionally discussed since. Unfortunately, it all has been is discussed with no real work on a sequel ever happening.
While out doing some publicity for his new book Silver Screen Fiends, Patton Oswalt stopped by Screen Junkies where the talk turned to the comedian/actor’s own thoughts about what shape he thinks an Unbreakable trilogy should take. We’ll let you tell him in the clip below, but he does pick up on a few clues from the first films and extrapolate them into a pair of sequels that we would gladly throw down some money for tickets to see.
And apparently, we aren’t the only ones who are excited by his take –

So, what do you say Hollywood? Can you make this happen? Please?
