It’s finally happened. Fan fiction has become reality. After years of begging and wishful thinking about one of the most underrated Superhero flicks, Unbreakable, getting a sequel, it’s been announced.
M. Night Shyamalan has confirmed his next film will be a sequel to the cult classic and titled Glass. The film will see both Unbreakable and last year’s Split’s universes come together.
The news was revealed via a Tweet by Shyamalan:

Universal quickly released a press release confirming the name of the movie to be Glass and Samuel L Jackson returning as Elijiah Price while Bruce Willis also coming back as David Dunn.
The official announcement and film summary is as follows:
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.
I haven’t been this excited about a movie announcement in a long time.
