It’s hard to talk about ‘Glass‘ without revealing the spoilery twist at the end of ‘Split’ so we’ll just get that right out of the way. If you haven’t seen ‘Split,’ then you might want to turn back now.
When M. Night Shyamalan’s last feature film came to a close we saw that Bruce Willis was reprising his role as Dunn from ‘Unbreakable’ and was now after James McAvoy’s ‘The Beast’. In the film, we first met McAvoy as Crumb who seemed to be a man suffering from multiple personalities but soon came to learn that he was so much more. Now, this insanely powerful “beast” and a human who just can’t be injured are going to be going toe to toe.
The best part? It sounds as if Willis and McAvoy won’t be the only ones returning for this next outing in the series.
According to the synopsis we also have more confirmation that Samuel L. Jackson will be returning as Elijah Price!:
“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.”
Word has it that Anya Taylor-Joy will also be reprising her role from ‘Split’ with Sarah Paulson (‘American Horror Story’) also joining the cast. I’m quite eager to see how Price, or, Mr. Glass is once again setting up all of these players. It should also prove to be interesting if another super powered person ends up being introduced into the movie.
Are you looking forward to ‘Glass’? Do you feel that Shyamalan finally has a concept that will be a hit with audiences after so many of his films fell short at the box office? Share your thoughts below!
