M. Night Shyamalan has revealed plans for the sequel to Unbreakable and his most recent movie, Split. The acclaimed director announced the film in a flood of tweets sent out earlier today, naming actors, sharing the project’s release date, and more. Known as Glass, the “crazy comic book thriller” will star Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy; its release date is currently set for January 18, 2019. “My new film is the sequel to #Unbreakable AND #Split,” tweeted Shyamalan. “It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film … Universal Pictures will release #Glass on January 18, 2019 all over the world. How’s that for not keeping a secret!”

You can check out the official synopsis of Glass below. For more, check out our recent analysis of M. Night Shyamalan’s movie characters. Shyamalan is also working on a modern reboot of Tales From the Crypt.

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.
