M. Night Shyamalan took to Twitter earlier today to announce that an American Horror Story alum had joined the cast of Glass.
Sarah Paulson has come on board the Unbreakable (2000) and Split (2016) sequel, joining a cast that currently includes Bruce Willis, who’ll be back as his Unbreakable character David Dunn (Willis made a surprise cameo appearance at the end of Split, confirming that Shyamalan's movie was set in the same universe as Unbreakable); Split’s James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb, aka The Beast, and his multiple split personalities; Anya Taylor-Joy (Split) as Casey Cooke; and Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass, the villain of Unbreakable and the titular character of Glass.
Here's a synopsis:
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.
Produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, Glass is slated to open in movie theaters on Jan. 18, 2019. There’s no news as to the character the American Horror Story vet will play yet, but she’s such a fantastic actress I can’t wait to see her in Shyamalan’s next movie. What do you think of Sarah Paulson joining the cast of Glass?
