The cast of Glass includes Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, Samuel L Jackson, Spencer Treat Clark, Charlayne Woodard, Sarah Paulson, and Anya Taylor-Joy. Described as the culmination of the Unbreakable and Split story, Glass is produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum (Blumhouse Productions), Ashwin Rajan, and Marc Bienstock.

The Blinding Edge Pictures and Blumhouse production will be released by Universal Pictures domestically on January 18, 2019. Buena Vista International is handling its release in foreign markets.
Details on Glass: M. Night Shyamalan brings together the narratives of two of his standout originals — 2000’s Unbreakable, from Touchstone, and 2016’s Split, from Universal—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.
Joining the all-star cast are Unbreakable’s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard, who reprise their roles as Dunn’s son and Price’s mother, as well as Golden Globe Award winner Sarah Paulson (American Horror Story series).
