M. Night Shyamalan Confirms Sequel for Unbreakable & Split Titled Glass

After 17 years, M. Night Shyamalan is finally delivering a proper sequel to Unbreakable.

The writer-director announced the news Wednesday on Twitter after months of teasing a new script he’s been writing. He revealed the film is called Glass, and that Bruce Willis (David Dunn) and Samuel L. Jackson (Mr. Glass/Elijah Price) will return. Universal will release the film Jan. 18, 2019.

“It’s taken 17 years but I can finally answer the #1 question I get, ‘Are you making a f#&@ing sequel to Unbreakable or what?’ ” he tweeted. “My new film is the sequel to #Unbreakable AND #Split. It was always my dream to have both films collide in this third film.”

Unbreakable, which Shyamalan released in 2000 one year after skyrocketing to stardom with The Sixth Sense, deconstructed the superhero genre and remains one of his best-regarded works. Shyamalan is coming off a hot streak, with his latest movie, Split, earning more than $275 million worldwide on a $9 million budget. Split starred James McAvoy as a kidnapper with multiple personalities and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, one of the young women who must fight to survive his capture.

With Split, Shyamalan pulled off perhaps his greatest twist yet.

A last-minute cameo from Willis revealed that Split is set in the same universe as Unbreakable. In January, Shyamalan revealed to Heat Vision that Split villain Kevin Wendle Crumb (McAvoy) was actually included in his first drafts of Unbreakable, but had to be cut out. He also revealed he was hoping to write and direct a third film that would include characters from both films.

Shyamalan revealed Wednesday that both McAvoy and Taylor-Joy will return for Glass. Here’s the logline Universal has released: “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.”

Glass will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.

This $30 Special Glass Promises To Make Your Coke Taste Better

Riedel, an Austrian company that makes specially designed glasses to bring out the flavor of certain wines and spirits, has made their first glass for a non-alcoholic beverage. 

The specially engineered Coke glass is designed to ensure the right balance of “sweetness, acidity, minerality, and effervescence,” so that you can pretentiously smack your lips and comment on the “longer finish” and more “intense aroma” of your soda.

Coca-Cola asked the company to make a new glass last February. Riedel now has a licensing deal with the soda company, the first time Riedel has worked with a non-alcohol brand. With wine glass sales slowing in Europe, Riedel sees glassware for carbonated beverages as an untapped opportunity.

The glasses already in stores sell in sets of two for $29.90 and the first run will be 80,000 pieces.
