Since the beginning of his directorial career, M. Night Shyamalan has demonstrated a love for surprises and twist endings. Perhaps one of his finest came at the end of Split, when he revealed that it was the stealth sequel to Unbreakable. Next year, Bruce Willis' David Dunn and James McAvoy's Kevin Wendell Crumb will collide in Glass, a new film that also reintroduces Samuel L. Jackson's iconic Mr. Glass.
At Comic-Con, SYFY WIRE spoke with Shyamalan about revisiting the titular character of Glass and sharing his joy with Jackson.
"It's just so fun to write him," said Shyamalan. "I was texting Sam [Jackson] and I'm like 'I just love writing this character. He's just struggling to find his place in the world, and why he would be born this way."
"For me, I'm not sure who are the villains and who are the heroes," added Shyamalan. "There's people that do empirical bad things and the empirical good things, but their motivations are very complicated."
SYFY WIRE also caught up with Glass co-stars Sarah Paulson and Anya-Taylor Joy, both of whom were hesitant to share any plot details of the upcoming sequel. However, Paulson expressed delight at the opportunity to perform opposite the leading actors in the film.
"Every day was kind of a pinch [me]," recalled Paulson. "I've been lucky enough to work with some extraordinary actors, and I remember seeing [Unbreakable] in the theater... I remember loving it."
