Split, the wildly entertaining (and extremely profitable) low-budget B-movie that has proven to be writer-director M. Night Shyamalan's creative and commercial comeback, has two twists, neither of which are very easy to guess.
But the director who became famous for twist endings pulled off a surprise bigger in Split than the fact that Bruce Willis was dead the whole time in The Sixth Sense.
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals-2000's UNBREAKABLE and last year's SPLIT-in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: GLASS. Glass. Willis also returns as the David Dunn character from "Unbreakable". And that supervillain existed in the same world as Bruce Willis' superman character David Dunn, from Unbreakable. Glass, likely the inspiration for the new title.
Stay tuned for more info on Glass, and find Shyamalan's announcement tweets below. In a series of tweets, he confirms he's teaming with Blumhouse Productions on a sequel to Unbreakable and Split. But people are apparently loving the connection, so Shyamalan is appeasing them with a new film he's calling Glass. "It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film", he added.
James McAvoy returns from "Split" as Kevin Wendell Crumb - and his 23 personalities - along with Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey.
Glass will be released by Universal Pictures on January 18, 2019.
Today, Shyamalan finally confirmed what many assumed: The shared universe between the films will continue.
"The shadowy presence of Price [Jackson] emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men".
