Unbreakable actors Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard join M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass
Unbreakable actors Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard have been cast in M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, according to THR. They will reprise their roles from the 2000 film. Clark will play the son of Bruce Willis’ David Dunn and Woodard will play the mother of Samuel L. Jackson’s Elijah Price.
Clark and Woodard join 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. Sarah Paulson has also been cast.
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.
Clark is known for his work in the films Gladiator and Mystic River. He recently appeared in four episodes of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Woodard is known for her work in The Crucible, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and The Leftovers.
