M. Night Shyamalan Confirms Plans To Make "The Last Airbender" Sequel

M. Night Shyamalan has announced and confirmed the very exciting news in a interview with London's Metro News that he's planning to make a second "Avatar: The Last Airbender" movie based on Nickelodeon's epic original animated series (Nicktoons) of the same name for Nickelodeon Movies and Paramount Pictures!

The film, "The Last Airbender 2", will be a sequel to Shyamalan's 2010 live-action "The Last Airbender" movie, which starred Noah Ringer as lead Aang, Dev Patel as Prince Zuko, Nicola Peltz as Katara, and Jackson Rathbone as Sokka, and was written and directed by Shyamalan.

However, Shyamalan has exclusively told that "The Last Airbender 2" won't be his next project.

'It takes so long to make those CGI movies,' Night explained, 'It's hard because it takes two/three years and I don’t get to make two of my own movies so there's always a struggle of choosing someone else's material over my own.

'Right now I'm going to go do another one of my own first, another thriller.'

His latest film, "The Visit", tells the story of two kids staying with the grandparents they had never met for a week while their mother (Kathryn Hahn) goes away on holiday. The siblings document their time there only to find that Pop Pop and Nana are not quite what they seem after 9.30pm.

"The Visit" is out in UK cinemas now.
