And I think the movie’s done well enough now to merit the ‘OK, let’s put this together.'”Jackson told Collider he considers Kevin/The Horde “an adequate foe for what Bruce’s ‘Unbreakable’ character is in terms of him being sort of unbreakable too in that kind of way,” but now “It’s just a matter of breaking [Elijah’s] ass out of wherever that mental institution was they had me locked up and let’s get it on, let’s see what happens!”The Wall Street Journal reports that Universal Pictures and Disney hoping to combine forces on the sequel, since “Unbreakable” was a Disney movie, and Universal distributed “Split.” A source told WSJ, “Disney expects to work with Universal as a partner, and participant in the profits.

They’re smarter than we give them credit for.”After being trashed for his behavior during a low period in his life, we can’t help but root for Charlie. I would go and do my thing and he’s like, yeah, we’d just go our separate ways.”Both Chris and Kelly reiterated that they love Jerry, which must make Charlie feel great.Ironically, Charlie was actually one of the more successful Bachelors. But Chris Harrison just did it.

It started to sag. I love Jerry, and I actually love Charlie, but Charlie and I — he was just East Coast, me Southern kid — it was like oil and water. He went there, and with very little hesitation.
