Shyamalan also tweeted that the script for Glass is 134 pages, which is down eight pages from where it started.

Glass will be following M. Night Shyamalan's Unbreakable (2000) and this year's Split in the franchise.

Early this year, Shyamalan‏ released Split as a standalone sequel, starring James McAvoy, Anya Taylor-Joy and Betty Buckley, about a man with 23 personalities who kidnaps and imprisons three teenage girls; Willis makes an appearance as Dunn. His most recent post confirmed that filming is now underway on Glass (at the time of writing this), in addition to making mention of successful rehearsals for the film. And today, both studios involved announced that Universal will handle domestic distribution and Buena Vista International will be orchestrating things overseas.

The talented creative team behind Glass includes a group of previous Shyamalan collaborators including cinematographer Michael Gioulakis (Split, It Follows), production designer Chris Trujillo (Stranger Things, Nerve), editor Luke Ciarrocchi (Split, The Visit) and costume designer Paco Delgado (Split, Les Misérables). The film will feature Dunn hunting down Crumb's "The Beast" persona, while Mr. Glass. Split star James McAvoy will also star in Glass, again playing Kevin Wendell Crumb and his many different identities.

Unbreakable's Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard join Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Anya Taylor-Joy, and Sarah Paulson for Glass in anticipation of the film's January 18, 2019 release.

Glass arrives in United Kingdom cinemas on 18 January 2019.

Split was far from a total success for the american film director M. Night Shyamalan.

Jason Blum, Marc Bienstock, Ashwin Rajan and Shyamalan are all producing Glass.
