M. Night Shyamalan is known for his twist endings, but even his most loyal fans were shocked by the ending of his 2016 psychological thriller “Split.”
The movie ended with the reveal that “Split” existed in the same universe as Shyamalan’s 2000 superhero movie “Unbreakable.”
The sequel is titled “Glass,” and it turns out Samuel L. Jackson had no idea Shyamalan was readying the “Unbreakable” sequel until he saw “Split” himself.
By sneaking in Willis’ Dunn at the end of “Split,” Shyamalan was able to make good on his promise.
“Glass,” opening in 2019, will find Dunn facing off against the multiple personality-stricken Kevin, played by James McAvoy in “Split.”
He called Shyamalan back soon after in disbelief and wondering if an “Unbreakable” sequel was finally on the table.
“I was like, ‘So are we gonna make this movie?’ And Night says, ‘Well, it depends on the opening weekend,’” Jackson said. »
