Patton Oswalt’s Idea for an ‘Unbreakable’ Trilogy Is Actually Pretty Great

EDIT
by Britt Hayes a day ago
Say what you will about M. Night Shyamalan, but the director delivered a few good movies before many people seemed to tire of his twist-y schtick. Unbreakable is one of those movies: a superhero and super-villain origin thriller with an ending that was kind of perfect—it left us wanting more while simultaneously leaving us averse to the idea of a sequel that might water down the concept. We’re not the only ones intrigued by the notion of a sequel. Comedian Patton Oswalt isn’t just into the idea, but he has a detailed plan for a whole Unbreakable trilogy, and it sounds pretty awesome.

This is a fun clip. It’s from a recent appearance from actor, comedian, and author Patton Oswalt (whose new book, ‘Silver Screen Fiend,’ all about his obsession with movies, will probably be of great interest to ScreenCrush readers) at the WORD Bookstore in Jersey City, where he did a public conversation with actor Patrick Wilson. Oswalt is a hardcore comic-book nerd in addition to his passion for film, and Wilson starred in one of the most polarizing comic-book adaptations of all time, Zack Snyder’s slavishly faithful version of Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons’ ‘Watchmen.’ When a fan asked a question about the movie, both Oswalt and Wilson shared their honest feelings about the project, which you can watch above.
