Two Unbreakable Cast Members Join M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass
We’ve been pretty excited ever since learning from the ending of Split that an official sequel to Unbreakable is on its way from M. Night Shyamalan titled Glass, and now we have a casting update to share, which involves two very familiar faces!
Per THR, Spencer Treat Clark (below left, “Animal Kingdom”) and Charlayne Woodard (below right, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”) are reprising their roles from the 2000 hit Unbreakable. In case the names don’t ring a bell, Clark returns as Bruce Willis’ character’s son, while Woodard returns as Samuel L Jackson’s character’s mother.
Willis plays the role of security guard David Dunn, who is imbued with superpowers, while James McAvoy is back as Split‘s Kevin Wendell Crumb, a man with multiple personalities, including the creature known as The Beast.
Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass (Jackson), emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
Anya Taylor-Joy, who co-starred in Split, is also back, portraying Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast, while Sarah Paulson has joined the Glass project in a new, so far undisclosed role.
Shyamalan, who wrote the script and is directing Glass, is producing with Jason Blum. Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock are also producing, while Steven Schneider will executive produce.
