M. Night Shyamalan could’ve easily done a paint-by-numbers sequel for his monster hit Split. Instead, the 48-year-old director is bringing the narratives of two of his blockbusters (Split and Unbreakable) for one explosive comic book thriller titled Glass. An ambitious feat indeed.
Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson reprise their roles of David Dunn and Elijah Price from 2000’s Unbreakable. They join James McAvoy who returns to play Kevin Wendell Crumb and all his multiple identities.
Also booking return gigs are Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke- the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast, Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark as Dunn’s son and Charlayne Woodard as Price’s mother. New to the fold is American Horror Story mainstay Sarah Paulson who portrays a psychiatrist who specializes in treating people who believe they’re superheroes.
Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
Glass arrives January 18, 2019. Check out the riveting new trailer below. It looks pretty epic.
