If you haven’t seen Split by now, then you probably should, because the film possesses some very interesting revelations. And that includes the fact it’s something of a sequel to one of M. Night Shyamalan’s previous films, Unbreakable.
The movie contained an after-credits scene which brought back Unbreakable actor Bruce Willis and his role as David Dunn. It was a real shocker for audiences and suggested that he’d be meeting up with Split’s antagonist Kevin Wendell Crumb.
And now Shyamalan has confirmed this is indeed the plan, and all of the big stars from both films will be returning. You can check out the director’s tweets on the subject below.
Unbreakable was released in 2000 and followed David Dunn (Bruce Willis), “the sole survivor of a devastating train wreck. Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) is a mysterious stranger who offers a bizarre explanation as to why David escaped without a single scratch — an explanation which threatens to change David’s family and his life forever.” The film was a huge success and Shyamalan had been hinting at a sequel for years until Split finally came along.
Split was released 16 years later in 2016 and followed “David Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), a man with 23 different personalities who kidnaps and imprisons three teenage girls in an isolated underground facility.”
The third film in this series, titled Glass, will be hitting theaters January 18, 2019.
