Shyamalan, Samuel and McAvoy Interview
Fans of M. Night Shyamalan’s groundbreaking super-powered movie Unbreakable were completely surprised when the ending of his 2016 thriller Split spoiler warning revealed itself to be an Unbreakable sequel. Shortly after the film debuted, M. Night announced that his next film would be one 18 years in the making a third installment in the series, titled Glass, that would bring the central characters from both Unbreakable and Split together for an event film that would expand on the mythology and open up this cinematic universe to all sorts of fun, freaky possibilities.
