As we get closer to discovering the secrets of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, the director has revealed a couple of juicy tidbits about his trilogy capping movie.
Speaking with Fandango’s Erik Davis about the eagerly anticipated superhero blockbuster, the usually secretive Shyamalan said “I don’t want to give too much away but you do see moments of the original Unbreakable… scenes you didn’t get to see.”
Perhaps this means we will get to see Robin Wright’s Audrey Dunn, the only notable cast member not confirmed to return for this sequel, or more of the fractured relationship between Dunn and his son, once again played by Spencer Treat Clark. The footage might also be used to confirm the oft-rumoured link between James McAvoy’s Kevin Wendell Crumb and Unbreakable, with some theories suggesting the two crossed paths when The Beast was a child.
The chat also cleared up where Glass sits in the Eastrail 177 trilogy timeline, with M. Night clarifying that the events take place 2-3 weeks after Split, and somewhere in the region of 15-16 years after Unbreakable. You can head to Davis’ Twitter account for the full interview.
Some nuggets from our chat:
– GLASS picks up a couple of weeks after SPLIT
– You will see McAvoy perform about 20 different personalities
– Never-before-seen footage from UNBREAKABLE will be in the film

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.
Glass will see the return of Bruce Willis (David Dunn), Samuel L. Jackson (Elijah Price), Spencer Treat Clark (Joseph Dunn) and Charlayne Woodard (Mrs. Price) from Unbreakable and James McAvoy (Kevin Wendell Crumb) and Anya Taylor-Joy (Casey Cooke) from Split, while Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) also stars. The film is slated to hit cinemas on January 19th 2019.
