Posted 2017/07/24 0 0

The 'American Horror Story' actress has come aboard M. Night Shyamalan’s next thriller, Glass.


Shyamalan shared the news on Twitter Monday writing, "Incredibly fortunate to round out our iconic cast of actors on #Glass... @MsSarahPaulson will be joining us. #powerhouse."

Glass is set to follow the heroic trail of David Dunn (Bruce Willis) from Unbreakable in hot pursuit of Kevin Crumb (James McAvoy) from Split, how that Kevin has transformed into his superhuman Beast personality. However, David and Kevin aren’t alone in their adventure, as Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) from Unbreakable also re-emerges, as an enigmatic presence who holds secrets critical to both men. Rounding out the cast of Glass (so far) is Anya Taylor-Joy, also reprising her own respective role from Split. Paulson’s role in Glass is unknown at the time of this writing.

Shyamalan is reteaming with Blumhouse’ Jason Blum to produce Glass for Universal, along with Marc Bienstock and Ashwin Rajan. The film will bow theaters on January 18, 2019.

Released in 2000 (by none other than Walt Disney Pictures), Unbreakable brought in $248 million at the worldwide box office upon release with fans clamoring for a sequel ever since. Split debuted this past January and brought in $274 at the worldwide box office.

Paulson has starred in Ryan Murphy’s hit FX anthology series “American Horror Story” since 2011, playing different characters in each of the show’s seasons. She won a Golden Globe and Emmy last year for portraying Marcia Clark in “The People v. O. J. Simpson: American Crime Story.”

Paulson recently wrapped shooting on the “Ocean’s Eight” spinoff for Warner Bros., which also stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Awkwafina, Helena Bonham Carter, and Rihanna. She is currently in production on Steven Spielberg’s Pentagon Papers film, “The Papers,” opposite Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep.
