M. Night Shyamalan announced this morning on Twitter that American Horror Story actress Sarah Paulson has joined the cast of his highly-anticipated Unbreakable and Split sequel, Glass.

She joins a cast that includes Bruce Willis as David Dunn and James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb and his multiple identities, Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, and Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, aka Mr. Glass.
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.
This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and 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. Glass will arrive in theaters on January 18, 2019.
Released in 2000 (by none other than Walt Disney Pictures), Unbreakable brought in $248 million at the worldwide box office upon release with fans clamoring for a sequel ever since. Split debuted this past January and brought in $274 at the worldwide box office.
