Check out the first official photos from M. Night Shymalan’s upcoming film Glass, the trilogy to both Unbreakable and Split films, courtesy of EW.
Returning for Glass are cast members Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L. Jackson asElijah Price, aka Mr. Glass, and James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, aka The Horde. They’re joined by Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series) as a psychiatrist who specializes in “individuals who believe they are superheroes” and who is treating the trio at a mental hospital.
Shyamalan and McAvoy tell EW that we’ll also be seeing more of Crumb’s other personalities along with some familiar faces:
“We get to spend some time with some new people that live inside Kevin,” McAvoy said. Those are not the only franchise returnees: Charlayne Woodard, who played Elijah’s mom, and Spencer Treat Clark, who played David’s son, also make appearances. “[They] play a big role,” Shyamalan teased to EW.
As for how Sarah Paulson’s character fits into all of this, she’s the psychiatrist treating Crumb, Dunn, and Glass. “She deals with people that think they’re comic-book characters,” says Shyamalan. “It’s kind of the modern-day equivalent of ‘I think I’m Jesus’ or ‘I’m an emperor.’”
Also starring in the film is Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast, who reprises her role from Split. Plus Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother.
Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18th, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad.
