With just a little over a week left until M. Night Shyamalan’s new film Glass hits theaters, the filmmaker dished some film details which his fans are going to love!
Glass will be Shyamalan’s final installment/sequel film for his previous hits Unbreakable and Split. Bruce Willis (who plays David Dunn) and Samuel L. Jackson (who plays Mr. Glass) are reprising their roles from Unbreakable for an epic conclusion to the surprise trilogy. The very ending of Shyamalan’s most recent film Split, starring James McAvoy, shocked viewers with a tie-in to Unbreakable. McAvoy is also returning to reprise his character with 25 different personalities (etcetera!) from the Split.
In a recent interview with Fandango, Shyamalan revealed that Glass will actually contain previously cut scenes from Unbreakable. Specifically, viewers are going to get the chance to see David Dunn’s son Joseph (played by Spencer Treat Clark) grow up through the years. For the diehard fans, that’s pretty exciting that we’ll get to see some never-before-scene footage. Shyamalan said:
[row]“We had Joseph, his son, played by the same actor, Spencer. Spencer is now 30-years-old. So, it was wonderful to see the same character. And you do see — I don’t want to give too much away — but you do see moments of the original Unbreakable, scenes you didn’t get to see… You’ll see the same actor change 18 years on camera in front of you, which is really powerful.”[/row]
The official synopsis for the film reads as follows:
[row]“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. From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.”[/row]
