M Night Shyamalan announces sequel to ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split’ in new film called ‘Glass’

After the amazing success and response to his latest film, Split, director/creator M. Night Shyamalan revealed that a sequel to this film and a crossover with Unbreakable will indeed go into production.

Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson are both confirmed to return and reprise their respective roles from the 2000 film in a new film titled Glass.

Shyamalan dropped the news via twitter through  a series of tweets that said the director could “finally answer the #1 question I get, ‘Are you making a f#&@ing sequel to Unbreakable or what?’” Adding that it was “always my dream” to have both Split and Unbreakable “collide in this third film”, Shyamalan said the cast would include both films’ leading actors: Unbreakable’s Willis and Jackson, and Split’s McAvoy and Anya Taylor Joy.

For fans of these films, this is truly amazing news and creates a massive frenzy of expectations.

Glass is rumored to be arriving January 18, 2019, but expect more details to come officially from the studio.

Jackson’s character – a comic-book dealer with a genetic bone disease, nicknamed Mr Glass – appears to be the central figure and could be reaching out to the animalistic version of McAvoy’s character introduced in Split.

Split, which featured McAvoy as a man with dissociative identity disorder, earned more than $274m at the global box office.
