If you haven’t seen Split yet, then just the headline of this article is a little bit of a spoiler. I won’t get into more details, but I will go as far as to say that Split and Unbreakable are films that exist in the same universe. What a Twist, right? If you want to know more about it, then go watch Split.
Without going into too many details here, M. Night Shyamalan today announced that ‘Split’ will be getting a sequel in 2019. He also confirmed that, as we now know the films exist in the same universe, the movie will be titled: ‘Glass’ and will star Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, and Anya Taylor-Joy. That is pretty freakin awesome. It still doesn’t make up for The Last Airbender, but it’s awesome none the less.
Here’s the official Synopsis for ‘glass’
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s UNBREAKABLE and last year’s SPLIT—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.
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.
