M. Night Shyamalan Teases His ‘Split’ Sequel

Riding high on three successive weeks at the top of the North American box office, director M. Night Shyamalan teased that he may be working on a follow-up to “Split.”

“I have an 11 page outline for my next film in my bag. I can’t tell you what it is, but If you’ve seen #Split…” he tweeted on Saturday.

“Split,” the story of a man with 23 personalities, earned $14.6 million this weekend at the domestic box office, narrowly beating horror retread “Rings.” “Split” has grossed $98.7 million stateside after three weekends.

The Philadelphia-based filmmaker has said that “Split” is the second of a trilogy starting with 2000’s “Unbreakable.” He told USA Today he’s “pretty excited” about the outline he’s got so far. “It’s very big, so that scares me a little.”

“Split” was produced by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions and the director’s Blinding Edge Pictures on a reported $9 million budget. Universal Pictures is distributing the film in North America.
