Samuel L. Jackson will be one of the leads in the movie Glass, directed by M. Night Shyamalan. The cast includes Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, Sarah Paulson, and Anya Taylor-Joy. The movie is set to release on January 18, 2019.
Glass follows a psychiatrist, "Dr. Ellie", that specializes in dealing with patients that have delusions of believing they are superheroes. She introduces herself to Bruce Willis’ character, "David Dunn" (from Unbreakable), James McAvoy’s "Kevin" and his Split-personalities (from Split), and Samuel L. Jackson’s "Elijah Price" (a.k.a. Mr. Glass), sitting across from her in an institution.
Each of the three men represent a super hero living in the world as we know it (Bruce Willis), a super villain expressed through multiple personality disorder (James McAvoy) and a super villain that wants the world to know they exists (Samuel L. Jackson). The plot is centered around the conflict that arises when a super hero and two villains are locked in a room together.
