M. Night Shyamalan begins filming sequel ‘Glass’

I think we can all say it at the same time: Split surprised us all. I’m not saying it was a masterpiece, by any means, but honestly I think we can say that with all the rough films M. Night Shyamalan has produced lately, this was a breath of fresh air. It’s difficult to say at what point many of us began to fall out of love for the director that had caught lightning in a bottle with his directorial debut, 1999’s The Sixth Sense, but it was clear to all of us: we needed some space. And after much space had been given, Shyamalan came back to us, and offered us something that brought us back to the good old days, even if it was just a taste of it.

Now Shyamalan has announced that his upcoming sequel to his unique comic book inspired film, 2000’s Unbreakable, has begun filming! Shyamalan took to Twitter to let fans know of the auspicious day in glorious fashion, of course, excited to the core that he had finally begun filming his upcoming film, Glass.

Unbreakable‘s Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard join Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Sarah Paulson for Glass in anticipation of the film’s January 18, 2019 release.

Here’s the official synopsis for Glass:

From Unbreakable, Bruce Willis returns as David Dunn as does Samuel L. Jackson as Elijah Price, known also by his pseudonym Mr. Glass. Joining from Split are James McAvoy, reprising his role as Kevin Wendell Crumb and the multiple identities who reside within, and Anya Taylor-Joy as Casey Cooke, the only captive to survive an encounter with The Beast.

Following the conclusion of SplitGlass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

This riveting culmination of his worldwide blockbusters will be produced by Shyamalan and Jason Blum, who also produced the writer/director’s previous two films for Universal. They produce again with Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, and Steven Schneider, who will executive produce.
