The cast for James Ponsoldt’s The Circle continues to get better and better — comedian / author / actor Patton Oswalt is the latest to join the lineup, which already includes Tom Hanks, Emma Watson, Karen Gillan and John Boyega.

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

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.

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.
