M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—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.
James McAvoy is going BIG with Glass. He didn't have time to get too muscled-up before filming Split, but now that The Beast is back in Glass, the 39-year-old Scottish actor turned to a professional for help. Cue celebrity trainer Magnus Lygdback, who was tasked with taking James McAvoy's Beast to the next level for the sequel. As the trainer put it...
Glass has been written, co-produced and directed by Manoj Nelliyattu Shyamalan, better known professionally as M Night Shyamalan. The movie is a sequel to Shyamalan's 2000's Unbreakable and 2016's Split Together, the movies form a superhero-psychological-thriller series known as the Unbreakable series, also known as the Eastrail 177 Trilogy. Glass’s director, James Wan, posted a photo of himself with actor Randall Park. It appears that Park’s character is being added to the film in the reshoot process. In the picture, Park is holding a few papers in his left hand. No big deal, right? But then, the internet did what the internet does, and dissected the image pixel by pixel. And what they spotted may have a major impact on the film.
M. Night Shyamalan's upcoming movie Glass is a strange beast since it's technically a direct sequel to two different movies. Not only is it finally reuniting us with David Dunn and Elijah Price nearly 20 years after Unbreakable, it's also following after the events of Split. With so much mythology to work with, Shyamalan acknowledged that it initially looked like Glass was going to be a tale stretching over three hours. The director recalled:
