New Glass teaser shows the return of David’s son, Joseph
While writer/director M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass will tie together characters from 2000’s Unbreakable as well as 2016’s Split, and the movie’s official Twitter account posted a special featurette that shows the evolution of Joseph Dunn. The character, played by Spencer Treat Clark, was the son of Bruce Willis’ David Dunn in Unbreakable, and will be also reprising his role in Glass.
It’ll be interesting to see how the relationship between these two characters has involved, as Unbreakable focused on David and Joseph’s relationship as much as it did on David coming to terms with his superpowers.
Willis and Clark will be joined by their Unbreakable co-star Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah “Mr. Glass” Price and James McAvoy’s The Horde, who first appeared in Split. They’ll be joined by Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story) as a psychiatrist who specializes in “individuals who believe they are superheroes” and who is treating the trio at a mental hospital. Also starring in the film is Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast, who reprises her role from Split. Plus Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother.
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Blumhouse Production’s 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.
A Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production, Glass will be released by Universal Pictures in North America on January 18, 2019, and by Buena Vista International abroad.
