Well… well… well… it would appear that M. Night Shyamalan is done embarrassing himself with crap films i.e. After Earth and The Last Airbender, and he’s not indulging himself with a break to bask in the success of his most recent film, Split.
Shyamalan has just announced, Glass, the sequel to Split and Unbreakable. If you were smart enough to remain in the theater for the credits to finish, then you saw a stinger that informed audiences that Split takes place in the same universe as Unbreakable.
Via Twitter Shyamalan released a statement:
Finished the new script… It’s taken 17 years but I can finally answer the #1 question I get, ‘Are you making a f#&@ing sequel to Unbreakable or what?’ My new film is the sequel to Unbreakable AND Split. It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film.” — Shyamalan
Diehard Shyamalan fans can rest easy, because both of the franchise’s major stars will reprise their roles. Fans can look forward to seeing a mentally ill +20 personality possesed man played by James McAvoy, David Dunn played by Bruce Willis, and Elijah Price played by Samuel L. Jackson in the upcoming sequel.
Not gonna lie, I will be buying a ticket to Glass – Shyamalan is back baby!
