M Night Shyamalan casts Unbreakable alumni in Glass

September 27th, 2017 by Dave Bowling Comments

Following on from Split, this year’s sort-of sequel to Unbreakable, M Night Shyamalan is moving forward on his plans for a third film set in the same continuity.

Unbreakable actors Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard have been confirmed as reprising their roles from the first film, joining Bruce Willis, Samuel L Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, and James McAvoy in reprising their roles from the other two movies. Clark played Joseph Dunn, the son of Willis’s unbreakable hero David Dunn, while Woodard played Mrs Price, the mother of Samuel L’s villain Elijah Price/Mr Glass.

From what we know so far, it seems that Glass will involve David Dunn pursuing McAvoy’s superhuman personality The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Mr Glass again emerges, apparently holding secrets critical to both men. Touch wood, it seems that Shyamalan’s long spell of producing terrible movies might be at an end. At least we hope so.

Glass is scheduled for release on 18 January 2019.

Dave was born at an early age to parents of both sexes. He has been a self-confessed geek for as long as he can remember, having been raised through the 80s on a steady diet of Doctor Who, Star Trek, Red Dwarf and (sigh) Knight Rider. Throw the usual assortment of Saturday morning cartoons into the mix and we have something quite exceptional: someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of utter tosh; a love of giant robots and spaceships fighting; and the strange desire to leap tall buildings in a single bound while wearing his underpants over his trousers. The death ray is currently in the works and one day you shall all bow to him, his giant space station and fleet of funky orange space shuttles...
