Just a couple of weeks after the first photos emerged of Samuel L. Jackson on the Glass set, the iconic actor has wrapped filming his scenes on M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable/Split sequel.
Shyamalan tweeted the news at the weekend, adding that just one week of filming remains. With the film’s release still more than a year off however, there may still be a little wait before we see any footage.
Bruce Willis stars alongside Jackson, both reprising their respective Unbreakable roles of David Dunn and Elijah Prince aka Mr. Glass, while James McAvoy will return as Split’s ‘The Beast’. Fast-rising genre star Anya Taylor-Joy (The Witch) also returns from Split, with American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson completing the lead cast.
Following the conclusion of SPLIT, GLASS finds David Dunn pursuing Kevin Wendell Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Elijah Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.
Jason Blum and Shyamalan are producing alongside Ashwin Rajan, Marc Bienstock and Steven Schneider.
Glass will hit cinemas on January 18th, 2019.
