Shared sequel for M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and Unbreakable now on location in Philadelphia
A shared sequel to 2016’s Split and 2000’s Unbreakable, entitled Glass, is now being filmed on location in Philadelphia. Principal photography began on Monday, just as news dropped that Buena Vista had signed on to handle the film’s international distribution.
Picking up where Split left off, Glass will follow David Dunn (Bruce Willis) in hot pursuit of Kevin Wendell Crumb (James McAvoy), both of whom are being watched by Elijah Prince (Samuel L. Jackson).
Additional returning cast members include Anya Taylor-Joy, Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard. Sarah Paulson will also star in a currently unknown role.
On a small budget of USD9 million, Split became a sleeper hit after grossing a total of USD278 million at the global box office. Unbreakable enjoyed similar success, amassing USD248.1 million from a USD75 million budget.
Philadelphia recently played host to the American remake of The Intouchables, starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart. The production filmed on Broad Street and at the Centre for Architecture and Design.
Production activity within the state of Pennsylvania is incentivised with a dedicated film incentive programme. Eligible projects that incur at least 60% of their overall spend within Pennsylvania can receive a tax credit of up to 30%. The incentive is also one of the few worldwide that extends to commercials productions.
Glass is scheduled to be released January 18th 2019.
