Filming on ‘Glass,’ the sequel to twist maestro M. Night Shyamalan’s 2000 modern classic ‘Unbreakable’ and last year’s psychological thriller ‘Split,’ has officially kicked off this week in Philadelphia. Shyamalan tweeted out a photo of the clapperboard to confirm the news.


‘Glass’ follows David Dunn, Bruce Willis’s seemingly common security guard who realises he is nearly indestructible, as he pursues superhuman personality The Beast (James McAvoy) in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Mr Glass (Samuel L. Jackson) again emerges, apparently holding secrets critical to both men.

‘Unbreakable’ actors Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard will reprises their roles from the first film, with Anya Taylor-Joy reprising her role from ‘Split.’ Sarah Paulson (‘American Horror Story,’ ‘Ratchet’) also stars.

This riveting culmination be produced by Shyamalan and horrormeister 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.

GLASS is scheduled for release January 18, 2019.
