Shyamalan shared the latest casting news via his Twitter writing, “Incredibly fortunate to round out our iconic cast of actors on #Glass… @MsSarahPaulson will be joining us. #powerhouse.”
Shyamalan is reteaming with Blumhouse’ Jason Blum to produce Glass for Universal, along with Marc Bienstock and Ashwin Rajan. The film will bow theaters on January 18, 2019.
