Unbreakable Makes Quick TV Sale

Only days after it opened as the number-two film with $46 million over the Thanksgiving holiday, M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable, starring Bruce Willis and Samuel Jackson, has been picked up as part of a three-film package by ABC.

Both the network and the film's distributor, Buena Vista, are owned by the Walt Disney Co. The two other films included in the package are the flop Brian De Palma sci-fier Mission to Mars and Jerry Bruckheimer's Coyote Ugly.
