Director M. Night Shyamalan has started development on his upcoming film Glass, which will continue the stories he started with Unbreakable and Split. It's pretty exciting to see that Shyamalan is actually able to make this happen! That twist ending at the end of Split when we saw Bruce Willis as David Dunn sitting in the coffee shop completely floored me! That was so freakin' cool!
Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Anya Taylor-Joy will all be back to reprise their roles and today we have the first official synopsis to share you! This gives us our story details for Glass in which David Dunn will hunt down The Beast, which is something that has all been orchestrated by Mr. Glass. Here's the synopsis!
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s UNBREAKABLE and last year’s SPLIT—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: GLASS. From UNBREAKABLE, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from SPLIT are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.
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.
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.
This is so awesome! These are all great characters and I can't wait to see what Shyamalan has in store for them as this story plays out. I'm also looking forward to seeing what the big shocking twist will be at the end of the film.
I honestly never thought I would be so excited about an M. Night Shyamalan movie again, but here I am. Are you excited!?
