M Night Shyamalan reveals cast, release date and title of Unbreakable/Split sequel

April 27th, 2017 by Marc Comments

It’s been no secret that, after the awesome ending of Split, M Night Shyamalan has been moving forward with the sequel to one of his first – and best – movies, Unbreakable (here).

And now the writer/director has dropped a load of awesome news on his twitter (full stream below).

Firstly, he has confirmed that the principal cast from the first two movies will be returning: Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L Jackson as Elijah Price, James McAvoy as Kevin Crumb (and others) and Split’s breakout star Anna Taylor Joy as Casey Cook.

He also confirmed that the movie will be released on January 18th, 2019 worldwide and will be called Glass. This fits in with the motif of the other two movies and also alludes to Samuel L Jackson’s ‘super villain identity’ in Unbreakable: Mr Glass.

So Unbreakable, Split and Glass: the M Night Shyamalan comic book trilogy is officially a thing now.

Man, we are so excited for this one.

Isn’t it great to have Shyamalan back? Yeah it is.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
