About the Prequels
Unbreakable (2000) is a story where Bruce Willis is portrayed as The Overseer who has the superpower that
allows him to see the visions of the crimes committed by a person after he touches him/her, and also, Samuel L. Jackson plays the role of Mr. Glass, who is a mass murderer.
The second movie, Split (2016), stars James McAvoy as The Horde, who suffers from multiple personality disorders wherein he switches among 23 personalities.
Dr. Ellie Staple
The Glass is a crossover of all the three insane characters brought together, who meet in a mental hospital and Sarah Paulson plays the role of Dr. Ellie Staple who is a specialist in treating such patients with ‘superhuman’
Powers. The twist is that the doctor isn’t who she claims to be. She is actually an undercover agent with a
motive to oust such patients for the sake of humanity.
The viewers have given a positive response to the movie.
What do Sarah Paulson’s fans have to say about her character?
Sarah has been appreciated for her role in the movie by her fans. According to reports, the fans are now demanding for an Ellie Staple spin-off movie.
“It’s still my hope that we’ll do another movie. Some fans are tweeting, ‘We want an Ellie Staple movie. We wanna
know more!’ I was like, ‘Yeah!’ That would obviously be totally thrilling, but I’ve heard nothing. I don’t think there are any plans to do anything like that,” says the actress.
A Red Signal From the Director, though
Night, in one of his interviews, has confirmed that Glass will be the last sequel of the trilogy, and the production of no other movie is being planned as another sequel to the trilogy.
