Check Out the New Synopsis for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass

Posted 2017/08/19 0 0

It teases a confrontation between Bruce Willis’ returning Unbreakable character Dunn and James McAvoy’s inhuman The Beast.


Filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan’s “Glass,” the sequel to both his films “Split” and “Unbreakable,” is scheduled to begin filming next month and now Universal has released a new official synopsis which hints at where the storyline of the follow-up will go.

Here is the official description:

Release date: January 18, 2019

Genre: Comic-Book Thriller

Cast: Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy

Written and Directed by: M. Night Shyamalan

Produced by: M. Night Shyamalan, Jason Blum, Ashwin Rajan, Marc Bienstock

Executive Producer: Steven Schneider

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.

Blumhouse is on quite a run with their two huge hits Split and Get Out dropping in 2017. With Split and now Glass, M. Night Shyamalan is back close to where he was when he became the modern-day master of suspense/horror with his films The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs and The Village. If Glass works out as well as Split, what seemed like somewhat of a gimmick appearance by Willis will instead look like a stroke of genius.
