The long awaited sequel to 2000’s Unbreakable marked its first day of production today.
Fans of the offbeat superhero flick were ecstatic to see the return of Bruce Willis’ David Dunn, the main protagonist and security-guard-turned-superhero of Unbreakable, in the closing scenes of Shymalan’s most recent effort, Split.
Split starred James McAvoy as a severely disturbed man with an abnormal (this is an understatement) form of disassociate personality disorder, who kidnapped three young women and held them captive in an isolated underground facility.
With the big reveal of Willis’ David Dunn, it was a no-brainer that a direct-sequel to Unbreakable was looming just over the horizon. A windstorm of speculation kicked up among Shymalanites everywhere, and not long after they got the confirmation they long yearned for: the sequel was indeed in the works.
Seventeen years in the making, Glass will not only see both Willis and McAvoy reprising their respective roles as David Dunn and Kevin Wendell Crumb, but Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price, AKA Mr. Glass, will be returning as well.
Which, you know, given the title is probably a dead giveaway.
Other members of Unbreakable alum set to return are Spencer Treat Clark as Joseph Dunn, son of David Dunn, and Charlayne Woodard as the mother of Mr. Glass himself. Anya Taylor-Joy will return as Casey Cooke, the “girl who got away” in 2016’s Split.
Here’s to hoping that Mr. Glass can orchestrate a few more grand schemes, tying both David Dunn and Kevin Crumb into his next villainous venture.
Glass is set to hit theaters on January 18th, 2019.
