Glass is the movie I’m most excited for, aside from all the billion dollar properties from Marvel, DC, and Star Wars. Finally, 17 years after M. Night Shyamalan’s best film, Unbreakable, we’re getting a proper sequel with Bruce Willis back as David Dunn and Samuel L. Jackson reprising the delicious role of Elijah Prince aka Mr. Glass. Of course, Glass is also a sequel to Split and will bring back James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke. Saura Paulson has also been cast in a yet to be revealed role.
The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that two more actors from Unbreakable have joined the cast of Glass. Spencer Treat Clark is back to portray Willis’ son, all grown up, as he was thirteen in 2000 when Unbreakable hit theaters. Charlayne Woodard returns as Jackson’s mother.
Robin Wright has yet to be cast as Willis’ wife, but based on how rocky their relationship was in Unbreakable, I would not be surprised if she is no longer a part of the plot moving forward.
The question arises then, will we be be seeing Elijah’s mother in the present day or through further flashbacks as in the first film? The latter almost makes more sense, as her character was already fairly old in the present day finale of Unbreakable, and Woodard herself is not an older actress. Sure, the first film was an origin story, calling for flashbacks, but I would not be surprised if we learned more about young Elijah in Glass, seeing as he is the title character.
The Hollywood Reporter gives the following synopsis for Glass:
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.
