M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN weaves together the unforgettable narratives of two of his visionary original films—2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’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 him, 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.
Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s SPENCER TREAT CLARK and CHARLAYNE WOODARD, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Emmy and Golden Globe winner SARAH PAULSON (American Crime Story: The O. J. Simpson Story, American Horror Story series).
The film’s director of photography is MICHAEL GIOULAKIS (Split), the production designer is CHRIS TRUJILLO (Netflix’s Stranger Things), and the costume designer is PACO DELGADO (Split, Les Misérables). Glass is edited by LUKE CIARROCCHI (Split) and BLU MURRAY (Sully). The composer is WEST DYLAN THORDSON (Split).
This riveting culmination of Shyamalan’s worldwide blockbusters is produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s 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 executive produces. GARY BARBER, ROGER BIRNBAUM and KEVIN FRAKES also serve as executive producers.
A Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production, Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad.
