It’s been almost twenty years since writer / director smash hit The Sixth Sense came out and thrust him into A-list director status which he cemented with the follow up Signs and Unbreakable before things got a bit wobbly with The Village before the critics mauled him for The Lady in the Water before it all came crashing down with the disastrous The Last Airbender and After Earth which did little for Will Smith’s career too.
Since then he’s returned to a number of small budget films with The Visit and Split. Now he’s doing the unusual thing of making a film which an Unbreakable / Split sequel with a film called Glass.
So what do we know about Glass?
- It will be released on 18th January 2019
- Anya Taylor Joy will reprise he role from Split as will James McAvoy
- It will inevitbaly feature a cameo from the writer director in a small speaking role.
- The film will run at over two hours and was shot late 2017
- The film will be a co production between Universal studios and Disney’s Touchstone pictures
- Samuel L Jackson will again play the villainous Glass who holds information on David Dunne the superhero payed by Brie Willis who in turn is pursuing James McAvoy’s The Beast.

We can probably expect to see the first trailer in early Autumn.
