Split 2: M. Night Shyamalan Working on First Script Draft

Split James McAvoy M Night Shyamalan

This post contains SPOILERS for Split


For a while there, it looked like M. Night Shyamalan's career had taken a nose dive that no one could possibly recover from. Surprisingly, the writer/director did dig himself out of the hole with the fairly well-reviewed The Visit in 2015 and even more so with this year's massively successful James McAvoy starrer Split.

A lot of the buzz surrounding the film has to do with the surprise twist ending that revealed that the film is a sequel of sorts to Shyamalan's 2000 film, Unbreakable. Split is actually an origin story for McAvoy's villain whose 24th split personality, The Horde, is super-powered in a similar way to Bruce Willis' David Dunn. Shyamalan has previously mentioned he plans on creating a third film and alluded to an already completed an 11-page outline for it in a tweet.

Taking to Twitter, the director has revealed that he has begun writing his next project having completed. Just like the tweet regarding the completion of the outline, however, this new one doesn't spell out exactly what he's writing. Check out the tweet below:
