Posted 2017/11/18 0 0
Samuel L. Jackson's work on M. Night Shyamalan's Glass is done and dusted.
Earlier today, Samuel L. Jackson wrapped up his shooting for Glass, an upcoming thriller written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, confirms M. Night Shyamalan. The director has posted an update on Glass, the follow up to both Unbreakable and Split, revealing that production lasts for one more week, and that Samuel L. Jackson has finished all his filming.
As for Shyamalan fighting back tears: The trilogy has long been a dream of his, and, if all goes according to the current plan, nearly two decades will have separated its first and third installments. Glass serves as a sequel to both Shyamalan's off-kilter superhero origin story Unbreakable, which was released in 2000, and his psychological horror-thriller flick Split, which was a surprise hit amongst critics when it debuted earlier this year through Universal. In Unbreakable, a hard-working man named David Dunn (Bruce Willis) meets Elijah Price after surviving a train accident, and soon discovers how and why he escaped the would-have-been-deadly tragedy without a scratch on him. Split centers around Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), a man who suffers from dissociative identity disorder (DID) that plagues him with 23 distinct personalities, some of which are extremely dangerous. Each time one of Kevin's personalities rises to the surface, his body chemistry is altered, setting off his 24th personality called "The Beast." One young woman, Casey Cooke (Anya Taylor-Joy), gets caught in the crosshairs of Kevin's disorder, becoming his captive and a potential victim of 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.”
Glass features James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson, Spencer Treat Clark, Luke Kirby, Charlayne Woodard, Nina Wisner, Marisa Brown, and Charles W. Harris III.
The film is slated with a release date of January 18, 2019.
