Published Apr 26, 2017One of the film world's worst kept secrets was the fact that M. Night Shyamalan's Split took place in the same world as his 2000 film Unbreakable. Now that everyone has figured it out, the director has announced plans for a joint sequel to both films.
The third film in the series is called Glass, and brings back the key roles from both previous entries.
Glass is expected to arrive in early 2019. Here's the official announcement about the film from Universal:
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.
