Sixth Sense Director Hopes New Film's End Stays A Surprise

The director of THE SIXTH SENSE says he hopes filmgoers will keep quiet about the twist in the tale of his new film.

M NIGHT SHYAMALAN says that he hopes the media and film fans won't give away the ending to UNBREAKABLE.

He says, "The only person it hurts is the person you're talking to. It doesn't hurt me, because if you go and tell somebody the ending they're still likely to come see it. It's a very unsatisfying thing to do and very unkind." Shyamalan says he thinks if audiences love the film they're less likely to give away the ending: "If they hated Sixth Sense and hated Unbreakable they'd be like 'Oh my God' and give away the ending. But if we do our job right I don't think it's an issue."

Unbreakable, which stars BRUCE WILLIS and SAMUEL L. JACKSON, is a thriller about a man who learns something extraordinary about himself after an accident. It is due to be released in the UK in January (01).
