[UPDATE #2] The Glass panel should include cast members Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor-Joy and writer/director M. Night Shyamalan – based on this year’s Conan taping line-up.

As for Halloween? Well, the OG Scream Queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis, has confirmed she’ll be in attendance.

 [UPDATE] Glass director M. Night Shyamalan confirmed on Twitter that he will be in attendance for the Hall H panel, along with “the cast” and “a surprise”. He also confirmed that the panel is set for Friday, July 20.

James McAvoy also confirmed via Instagram that he will be on the panel, along with “a whole horde” of cast members.

[PREVIOUS] Hall H is about to get a lot scarier this year. Deadline reports that Blumhouse/Universal is bringing two of their upcoming films, Halloween and Glass to Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this year.

io9 had previously reported that Halloween, the eleventh installment in the franchise, would be heading to Comic-Con this year. There’s no word yet on which cast members will be in attendance, but the film stars Jamie Lee Curtis (reprising her role as Laurie Strode from the original 1978 film), Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and others. It’s also got some Comic-Con friendly people behind the scenes as well, as the script was co-written by David Gordon Green (who also directed) and Danny McBride.

And then there’s Glass, the sequel to director M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable (and also the sequel to Split). Deadline reports that attendees won’t be treated to a screening the way they were for Shyamalan’s The Visit, but we’ll be getting a Hall H panel. Again, no word yet on cast in attendance, but the film stars Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, James McAvoy, Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Spencer Treat Clark. The film will follow Unbreakable‘s David Dunn, a security guard, as he tracks down Split‘s Wendell Crumb, a disturbed man with multiple personalities.

It’s unclear if the panel would be branded under Universal or Blumhouse, but we’ll know soon enough.
