As for what to expect from the movie, actor James McAvoy told Entertainment Weekly that we will get to meet more of Kevin Wendell Crumb’s personalities. He said that “We get to spend some time with some new people that live inside Kevin.” Sarah Paulson will be joining the cast playing a psychiatrist, Dr. Ellie Staple. The director said that “she deals with people that think they’re comic-book characters, it’s kind of the modern-day equivalent of ‘I think I’m Jesus’ or ‘I’m an emperor.’ ”
Other cast members include Anya Taylor-Joy returning as Casey Cooke, Bruce Willis as David Dunn, Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, Spencer Treat Clark as Joseph Dunn and Charlayne Woodard as Elijah’s mother.
The official synopsis reads:
From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.
Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.
Glass will be released on January 18, 2019.
