Perhaps the biggest twist of Split (other than that M. Night Shamalama-ding-dong finally released another decent film) is how it’s a sequel too 2000 superhero film Unbreakable. But not that the secrets out, a third film, named Glass, the title of Samuel L. Jackson’s villain, is officially in the works, with a plot synopsis giving us a hint where the movie might be heading.
“Following the conclusion of SPLIT, GLASS finds David Dunn pursuing Kevin Wendell Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Elijah Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.”
James McAvoy is confirmed to return as The Beast, with both Jackson and Willis reprising their roles from Unbreakable as well. Anya Taylor-Joy, the lone survivor of Split, will be returning as well, with Sarah Paulson completing the cast in as of yet unannounced role.
There’s no denying Split was a significant step up from Afterearth, The Last Airbender, and pretty much every other film M. Night has released in the last decade. Id go as far to say it was actually better than Unbreakable. Whether or not Glass will continue his hot streak or bring it to a (train) crashing halt won’t be known until the film releases in 2019.
