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.

Shyamalan said: “Eighteen years ago I had this idea: What if comic books were based on reality? I tried to tell the story of superheros in the real world with David Dunn. Then two years ago, I got another crazy notion: What if the afflictions and disorders that everyone in society thinks make a person bad were actually gifts? And I created the origin story for an anarchist who could be good or bad.”

Glass will be released on January 18. 2019.

The film stars Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price (Mr. Glass), Charlayne Woodard as Mrs. Price, Spencer Treat Clark as Joseph Dunn, James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb (The Horde), and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke. Sarah Paulson will be joining the film as a new character.
