Glass aka Unbreakable 2 (Willis / Jackson / McAvoy) (January 18, 2019)

In perfect M. Night Shyamalan style, the director teased he would share some “unbelievable news” on his Twitter feed today. And he did not disappoint. In a slow reveal, the helmer whose latest film, Split, has been a $275M worldwide hit for Blumhouse and Universal, confirmed his next picture will be the sequel to both that movie and 2000’s Unbreakable. Titled Glass, it will reteam Unbreakable stars Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, along with Split‘s James McAvoy and Anya Taylor Joy. Universal will release Glass on January 18, 2019.

Shyamalan says of the “crazy comic book thriller” that will be his third collaboration with producer Jason Blum, “It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film.”

A fan favorite, superhero thriller Unbreakable starred Willis as David Dunn, a security guard who survives a terrible train crash. With the help of Jackson’s mysterious and manipulative comic book shop owner Elijah Price — whose rare disease renders his bones as fragile as glass — Dunn learns he possesses superhuman powers. It grossed $248M globally.

Psychological thriller Split, which stars McAvoy as a kidnapper with multiple personalities, marked the second collaboration for Shyamalan and horrormeister Blumhouse after 2015’s The Visit. It was a monster in its debut, grabbing $40M domestically and going on to $138M in North America and $137M overseas. Japan is still to release.

What? How can this be a sequel to Split and Unbreakable? I haven't seen Split yet myself.

HOLY SHIT! I never would have thought the two movies took place in the same universe. Just watched Split and everything clicks now. First of all, about time he made a sequel to Unbreakable but it's also the kind of movie that didn't really need a sequel. He's doing a great job so far though so we'll see how the third one turns out.

I wonder if this was his plan all along with this movie or if he just threw in that little twist at the end at the last minute...

Unbreakable was the origin story of a superhero, so it always needed a sequel.
