We’ve been following news of M. Night Shyamalan’s planned follow up to this year’s mega-hit Split since the project was first announced in March; Glass will continue the story of Kevin Wendell Crumb aka The Beast (James McAvoy) and will also feature McAvoy’s Split co-star Anya Taylor-Joy reprising the role of Casey Cooke. Most exciting, though, is that Glass will create a larger Shyamalan-iverse by connecting to 2000’s Unbreakable; David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and Elijah Price aka Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) will be folded into a combined mythology.
Today, via ScreenRant, we’re getting our first official synopsis for Glass; it’s not vastly revealing, but it’s definitely something fans can get excited about!
Official Synopsis: 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.
American Horror Story mainstay Sarah Paulson was recently revealed to have joined the cast of Glass, which Shyamalan is hoping to premiere in January 2019; Blumhouse is producing. It’ll be ages before we have a trailer, but we’ll be keeping our ears to the ground to bring you additional Glass details as news emerges. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, check out the trailers for Split and Unbreakable below.
Official Synopsis: Though Kevin (James McAvoy) has evidenced 23 personalities to his trusted psychiatrist, Dr. Fletcher (Betty Buckley), there remains one still submerged who is set to materialize and dominate all of the others. Compelled to abduct three teenage girls led by the willful, observant Casey, Kevin reaches a war for survival among all of those contained within him — as well as everyone around him — as the walls between his compartments shatter.
Official Synopsis: David Dunn (Bruce Willis) is the sole survivor of a devastating train wreck. Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) is a mysterious stranger who offers a bizarre explanation as to why David escaped without a single scratch — an explanation which threatens to change David’s family and his life forever.
