M. Night Shyamalan's been counting down the weeks till the beginning of principal photography of the follow-up to psychological horror-thriller's Unbreakable and Split on Twitter, and today the filmmaker's most recent post has just confirmed the beginning of production for Glass. We know that production should run about 39 days, and that the current script should result in a roughly two-hour-and-fifteen-minute movie.
Shyamalan has been ramping up the tweets in the last month or so while doing location scouting around Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Glass is the sequel to "Unbreakable", which starred Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, and was released by Disney's Touchstone label. Additionally, actress Anya Taylor-Joy's Split character, Casey Cooke, will be in Glass.
While there are no details about the plot for "Glass", all of the major players from both films are set to return with Willis, McAvoy and Jackson all signed on to appear as well as Anya Taylor-Joy reprising her role from "Split" as the only survivor of "The Beast".
The synopsis for the film (Glass) reads: "Following the conclusion of Split, Glass 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".
Fast forward to 2016 when Shyamalan debuted his latest film titled "Split", which chronicles a man named Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), who kidnaps a group of teenage girls before revealing that he's got multiple personality disorder.
Glass has a January 18, 2019 release written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, and produced by Shyamalan, Jason Blum, Ashwin Rajan and Marc Bienstock, with Steven Schneider serving as executive producer.
