Hopefully he won't be writing the scripts for them either. If he wants the future installments to succeed, I think he needs to just act as producer and hand off the directing and writing to someone else. I think he needs to get the original creators more involved to give more depth to the characters. I also think they would have a better idea of what parts of Book 2 and Book 3 to focus on and which parts can be omitted or glossed over. In this film, Shamylan seemed to put more emphasis on things that really had little importance to the overall story and omitted characters and events that had much greater bearing on events in Books 2 and 3.
