Ever because the realization that M. Night time Shyamalan’s Cut up was truly a quiet sequel to his hit Unbreakable, followers have been excited to see Glass, the film that may mix the 2. It seems the director is a bit more than merely excited. He recently posted to social media that filming on the brand new film may be very almost full, however as one of many story’s key actors wrapped, Shyamalan bought greater than a bit of emotional about it.
Whereas M. Night time Shyamalan has had a profession that has hit several peaks and valleys, Unbreakable was considered one of his early movies that resonated with most followers and critics. As such, it’s no surprise that the director holds the film in a particular place. The truth that Cut up was also well received, even earlier than the twist ending that put the film in the identical universe as Unbreakable, actually did not harm. The truth that Shyamalan determined to show Cut up right into a sort-of sequel in any respect exhibits that he nonetheless finds the story vital. It is the one film to make a direct connection to any of his others.
And that led to Glass. As soon as the connection between the 2 movies was made, it was clear that no less than yet another entry can be obligatory to complete the story. The movie will star Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, and James McAvoy and can deliver collectively the characters from each Unbreakable and Cut up, right into a single story, with Willis’ David Dunn monitoring down McAvoy’s The Beast. Apparently, Samuel L. Jackson’s Mr. Glass would be the final villain right here, as he could also be orchestrating events himself. Anna Taylor-Pleasure can even be reprising her function from Cut up, although precisely how she matches into the story nonetheless is not clear.
It is fairly outstanding simply how shortly issues are transferring alongside. Cut up was launched lower than a yr in the past, and now, right here we’re, with principal images of Glass very almost completed. Samuel L. Jackson, who performs the title character this time round has already wrapped his work on the movie. Sadly, except the film will get pushed up, it is nonetheless going to be fairly a while earlier than we see it. Glass has a set launch date of January 18, 2019, which suggests it will likely be greater than a yr as soon as filming is finished earlier than it sees the sunshine of day. One wonders if M. Night time Shyamalan’s massive twist this time round will likely be a shock launch date.
