Glass, M. Night Shyamalan’s sequel to both Split and Unbreakable, the sequel we didn’t realize we were getting until this year, has officially begun filming.
Yesterday afternoon, Shyamalan tweeted a photo of the clapboard, which shows the new logo for Glass as well:

“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 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.
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.”
Glass could be really great, if for no other reason than it puts Bruce Willis front and center in a movie he may actually care about. It will be here January 18, 2019… pay no attention to that release date. This will buck the trend of shitty January movies.
