M. Night Shyamalan's 'Glass' synopsis revealed
Universal Pictures have released the official synopsis for M. Night Shyamalan's anticipated follow up to 2000's Unbreakable and sequel to 2017's thriller Split - warning spoilers, if you have not seen Split -
Universes collide as our characters from Unbreakable and Split intersect for M. Night Shyamalan's Glass, which kicks off production next month. The title of Glass is a derivative from Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price character in Unbreakable — also known by his pseudonym "Mr. Glass". Bruce Willis reprises his role as the "Unbreakable" David Dunn who was last seen sitting at a diner watching the aftermath of the events that took place between James McAvoy's - Kevin Wendell Crumb and Anya Taylor-Joy's - Casey Cooke in Split. The synopsis for Shyamalan's latest appears to be a game of cat and mouse between Willis's Dunn and McAvoy's 'The Beast'.
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.
Glass is set for release January 18, 2019 and will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum (Blumhouse Productions), who also produced Shyamalan's previous two films for Universal. Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, will executive produce.
