Remember ‘Unbreakable’? 

The early 2000 release that centred around the physical and mental origins of a superhero and his nemesis.

The intelligently-scripted and creatively-directed picture that gave the audience a reason to feel sympathy for both the superior being, David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and the weakened villain, Elijah Prince (Samuel L. Jackson).

In case you didn’t catch on, I’m a huge fan of the flick.

It offered a unique and detailed perspective on the relationship of the rivals and how they came to step into their respective roles.

Although the movie was originally rumoured to be the first in a trilogy, a disappointing box office performance meant that the franchise was abandoned after the first release.

But now 15 years later, there’s new-found hope of a sequel.

With the success of comic-based movies like ‘The Avengers’ and ‘X-Men’, ‘Unbreakable’ writer and producer, M Night Shyamalan, says there could be public interest in another movie.

“Maybe there’s an interest right now in the underlying struggles and fantasies that are being fulfilled in comic books and not being fulfilled in the real world,” he explained.

Jackson, who played the part of the frail villain, said he was more than keen to step back into the role.

“People talk to me about that movie all the time. Night’s still around. Bruce is still around. I’m still around. And I’d love to break out of the asylum,” Jackson said.

We say let’s get the cameras rolling on ‘Unbreakable 2’.
