Samuel L. Jackson is out promoting his next film ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard,’ and during a press junket the actor revealed his production schedule to ‘Glass’ the M. Night Shyamalan follow up to ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split.’
‘We start rehearsal on [September] 18th and I start shooting on the 25th. (…) I’m anxious,’ said Jackson to Collider.
‘Glass’ will look to Jackson to carry the film as he reprises his character Elijah Price (Mr. Glass), and we all know, the greater the villain, the better the hero.
M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals—2000’s UNBREAKABLE and last year’s SPLIT—in one explosive, all-new comic-book thriller: GLASS. From UNBREAKABLE, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from SPLIT are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast. “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’ hits theaters on January 18, 2019.
‘Split’ was an unexpected surprise at the box office in 2017, all eyes will be on ‘Glass’ in 2019. Do you think Shyamalan can handle the pressure? Comment below.
