Okay. Here we go. Finished the new script. It’s taken 17 years but I can finally answer the #1 question I get, “Are you making a f#&@ing sequel to Unbreakable or what?” My new film is the sequel to #Unbreakable AND #Split. It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film. The iconic Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn. The incomparable Samuel L Jackson will return as Elijah Price/Mr. Glass. The virtuoso James McAvoy returns as Kevin Wendell Crumb, Patricia, Dennis, Hedwig, Barry, Jade, Orwell, The Beast, Heinrich, Norma, Pol-And the prodigy, Anya Taylor Joy will return as Casey Cooke. I’m reteaming with my partners Jason Blum and Universal Pictures for this crazy comic book thriller.And the film is called GLASS… Universal Pictures will release #Glass on January 18, 2019 all over the world. How’s that for not keeping a secret!
In M Night’s Split, James McAvoy plays a man with 23 different personalities who has kidnapped three girls, who have to work out which of those personalities will help them escape and which of those personalities will try to stop them..
After Kevin Wendle Crumb makes his escape, the film moves to a bar, where a news broadcast recounts some of the events of the film. A man with multiple personalities kidnapped three young women and held them captive — and police have given him a name: The Horde. Someone in the bar remarks, didn’t authorities have a nickname for that man in a wheelchair who caused trouble 15 years ago? Pan to Bruce Willis’ Unbreakable character, David Dunn, who says yeah, “Mr. Glass.”
Prior to the release, the final moments of Split were more than 15 years in the making, a secret so guarded that writer-director M. Night Shyamalan didn’t allow it to be included in test screenings of the film.
As of this article, there is no description of the sequel available but we know that Samuel L. Jackson will return as Mr. Glass and Bruce Willis will reprise his role as David Dunn, Mr. Unbreakable.
