Excellent news, indeed! Shyamalan is correct that the cast in the upcoming film is iconic, and Sarah Paulson has a proven track record of bringing out the best in an ensemble cast. Shyamalan’s hashtag, “powerhouse” may be referencing the fact that Paulson has been wowing audiences with her numerous roles in American Horror Story and her incredible portrayal of Marcia Clark in American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson.
Shortly after Shyamalan’s announcement, Sarah Paulson took to Twitter to communicate her excitement about the upcoming project:
Humbled and SO damn excited!!!!

Hopefully, Shyamalan will continue to share news on the project directly with fans in the coming months. Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more details on Glass as they break!
