After an incredible turnout at the Box Office and the will of critics, Split was a success and signalled a return to form for director M. Night Shyamalan, Split wasn’t just a return to form, however, it was also a return to a franchise. Before it’s Box Office run could end it was announced that ‘Glass’ would be going into production later this year, a movie that will finish what Unbreakable started back in 2002.
Shyamalan has been vocal about his appreciation for those who want to see Split, saving his career in a way. He’s being just as vocal about the production and schedule for Glass too.

The director says the script clocks in at 134 pages, (which transfers to a number of minutes too) with a 39-day shoot. Glass will see a return from Anya Taylor-Joy, Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson as well as the likes of Sarah Paulson and Spencer Treat Clark. Scheduled release for January 2019, it’s a similar time to the release of Split with Universal probably trying to recreate Split’s successful box office run.
Glass synopsis 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.
