M. Night Shyamalan weaves together the unforgettable narratives of two of his visionary original films—2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller Glass.
Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn along with Samuel L. Jackson as the highly intelligent Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass in the third installment of the Eastrail 177 movie franchise. Joining them are Split’s 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”.
In the upcoming flick, Dunn has turned into vigilante hero known as “The Overseer” and is tracking down Crumb’s superhuman personality. Under the care of Dr. Staple, the two are detained in the Raven Hill Memorial Psychiatric Research Hospital where Dunn’s nemesis, Price or simply Mr. Glass, has been kept for the past 16 years.
Joining the all-star cast are Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson portraying the mysterious Dr. Ellie Staple.
Tackling diverse themes including the root of identity and whether or not reality can be shaped by our own minds, the much-awaited film from the American director will surely put both cinephiles and comic book geeks at the edge of their seats.
M. Night Shyamalan shares his excitement in directing the movie: “I’ve never done anything like this. People are excited to see this movie because of their connection to one or both of the two movies, and that’s a strange relationship to the audience I’ve never had before.”
Glass is produced by Shyamalan’s A Blinding Edge Pictures and Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions. It is distributed by Universal Pictures in North America and Walt Disney Studios internationally.
