M. Night Shyamalan’s sequel to both Unbreakable and Split has just added two familiar faces to its cast.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Unbreakable actors Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard have signed on to reprise their respective roles as David Dunn’s son and Elijah Price’s mother in Shyamalan’s next thriller, Glass.
Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson are already confirmed for the sequel, as are Split stars James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy. American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson is also on board in an undisclosed role.
Shyamalan — who wrote the script and is back at the helm — recently revealed that the project would begin filming towards the end of the month. An official synopsis for the film can be found below.
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 currently set to hit theaters on January 18, 2019. Stay tuned for more news on the project as we learn it.
6 R-Rated Comic Book Movies Audiences Deserve
Logan and Deadpool have shown studios that R-Rated superhero movies can succeed. Sure, Watchmen and 300 kind of proved that same point in 2009, but now both Marvel and DC have said R-Rated movies are a possibility. Audiences are tired of so many comic book movies featuring similar plots, so opening more projects to the potential of being R-Rated makes it possible that different, mature stories can be told.
Some characters, like Superman and Spider-Man, should never receive the R-Rated treatment. If a character is defined by a sense of hope or optimism instead of a dark, gritty core that grounds all their actions, then a R-Rated movie likely won’t work.
