Night Shyamalan Is Making a Sequel to 'Unbreakable' and 'Split'

Unbreakable, if you haven't seen it yet, is a moody slowburn that focuses on a security guard (Willis) who suspects that he may have superhuman abilities. He revealed the film is called Glass, and that Bruce Willis (as David Dunn) and Samuel L. Jackson (as Mr. Glass/Elijah Price) will return. Now that Split's success is poised to give birth to the long-awaited sequel, with Shyamalan sitting down to write it soon with the intention of making it his next film, let's look back on the legacy of the genre-bending original that still fascinates over 16 years later. Now, Shyamalan has revealed details for the third film in the shared cinematic universe, Glass.

Shyamalan said it "was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film".

"Unbreakable" was released in 2000 and grossed almost $250 million worldwide.

Shyamalan is coming off a hot streak, with his latest movie, Split, earning more than $275 million worldwide on a $9 million budget. Not only that, breakout star Anna Taylor Joy will also be returning as Casey Cooke.

But in typical M. Night Shyamalan fashion, there's a twist.

In January, Jackson told the Sun that he was surprised by Split's connection to Unbreakable. Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and Anya Taylor Joy will be returning as their iconic characters.

Glass will follows Dunn as he tracks The Horde in "a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men".

Producers are Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced "Split" and "The Visit" for Universal.
