Unbreakable and Split fans, get ready, because production has officially begun for M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass, as announced by the writer-director himself.
The filmmaker took to Twitter last night to share his excitement for today’s start of a journey. He mentioned a week of rehearsals, and from the sound of it, it all went well. We can only hope the film itself meets the expectations surrounding it.
About to go to sleep before the first day of shooting #Glass. Thinking about the incredible week of rehearsals we had & hoping for the best.

Glass is the third film in the series that began with Unbreakable, and then unexpectedly continued with Split earlier this year, with Bruce Willis showing up at the tail end of the film.
M. Night Shyamalan is a filmmaker who hit Hollywood with a bang in the early 2000s, but in more recent years, his work tended to receive more criticism than praise. Last year’s The Visit marked a small turnaround for him, and this year’s Split not only brought back a beloved franchise, but also marked another positive turn in his career.
The synopsis for Glass is below:
“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.”
Are you excited that the production of Glass has begun? Are you apprehensive that this conclusion won’t live up to the high bar set up by the past two films? Let us know your thoughts down below!
