Night Shyamalan Announces Unbreakable and Split Sequel Glass for 2019

Katie RamirezApr 27, 2017

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.

Glass - scheduled for a release in 2019 - will serve as his next project, and a direct sequel to both Split and Unbreakable.

Here's how the director broke the news to the internet, which quite rightly went mad... It used to be you walked into a Shyamalan movie looking for the twist, which would inevitably disappoint.

The film featured a surprise cameo by Willis as David Dunn, who was revealed in Unbreakable to have superhuman abilities.

The writer-director announced the news on Twitter on Wednesday after months of teasing a new script he's been writing. From UNBREAKABLE, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr.

In fact, as he revealed to Heat Vision, he actually wrote James McAvoy's Split character Kevin Wendle Crumb into early drafts of Unbreakable, but the villain ultimately had to be cut.

In that same tweetstorm, Shyamalan also stated that it was "Always my dream to have both films collide in this third film", and now that dream is becoming reality. Shyamalan's recent films have a renewed focus on telling an interesting, scary story. Shyamalan confirmed that not only is Samuel L. Jackson returning as Mr. The film has also become one of Shyamalan's most successful at the box office.

Glass is set to premiere on January 18, 2019, which gives Shyamalan plenty of time to think of new ways to pull the wool over his audience's eyes.
