With Unbreakable and Split in the rear-view, M. Night Shyamalan is filming the secret sequel to both films, Glass. Samuel L. Jackson is now reprising the classic role as Mr. Glass in the upcoming movie and the first photo of this character from the set has surfaced online.
Rolling around in the wheelchair, just as he did in the original Unbreakable, Jackson’s Mr. Glass looks super menacing.
For those who remember, Glass had been revealed as Unbreakable’s big villain at the end of the movie. He had been playing David Dunn (Bruce Willis) all along. The character was wheelchair-bound as he had a disease that made him fragile and ultimately led to his choice to become a villain.
Glass is sporting a new jacket in this movie, which looks more regal than the underground outfit he was sporting back in 2000. It seems like Glass has taken the role as the villain to new heights in this movie.
Shyamalan kept the Glass project a secret up until the release of Split. While the movie was about a group of teenagers trying to escape a man with multiple personalities, it was a hidden sequel to Unbreakable. At the end of the movie, David Dunn had appeared to the audience, connecting the stories of the two movies.
Glass, which is set to hit theaters in January 2019, will act a sequel to both Split and Unbreakable.
