It’s good news and bad for fans of director M. Night Shyamalan, but when is it not? The once-revered Sixth Sense director has officially booked a new Apple TV series, albeit with official confirmation that FOX drama Wayward Pines will not move forward with a third season.
If you haven’t seen M. Night Shyamalan’s Split by now, you probably ought to skip this until you have. But you’ve also probably already heard most of the discourse around that movie and its upcoming sequel, which means you probably already know that Split is actually something of a sequel to Shyamalan’s 2000 movie Unbreakable, and Glass is something of a sequel to both. Which is why it should come as no surprise that two more Unbreakable characters are being added to the mix in Glass.
Sarah Paulson will star in ‘Glass,’ M. Night Shyamalan’s follow-up to ‘Split’ and ‘Unbreakable,’ according to the writer-director himself. She joins the already-announced James McAvoy, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, who all played central roles in the previous two films.
It’s been well over a year since TNT’s M. Night Shyamalan reboot of Tales From the Crypt was announced; since running afoul of some legal challenges. Some internal teasers peaked our interest, but according to TNT boss Kevin Reilly, “I’m not waiting around four years for this thing.”
