Shyamalan connects film worlds with ‘Glass’

James McAvoy

In 2000, the world got hooked on M. Night Shyamalan’s intriguing story of security guard-turned-protector David Dunn (Bruce Willis) in “Unbreakable.”

In 2016, the filmmaker took the cinemas by storm with the thrilling sinister personalities of Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy) in “Split.”


Now, he connects both of his supernatural narratives in an all-new comic-book-inspired thriller, “Glass.”

“I’ve never done anything like this. It was really different for me to kind of bring characters from two different movies that I had invented earlier and then create a third version,” Shyamalan shares.


Willis expresses his excitement on being able to return as David Dunn: “Night creates characters that are unique and memorable and feel personal. I was just as thrilled to play David Dunn as it was the first time I played him.”

Meanwhile, McAvoy shares, “‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split’ were both, in a way, deconstructionist superhero movies …  taking super people—super hero and super villain archetypes—and putting them in a very different kind of movie.”
