Samuel L. Jackson has returned to one of his famous roles in these new Glass set photos. In this post by the Daily Mail newspaper in the UK, Jackson is pictured as the villainous Elijah Price/ Mr. Glass in the sequel to Split and the hugely popular Unbreakable, both of which were directed by M. Night Shyamalan.
Glass Set Photos Show Samuel L. Jackson As The Returning Elijah Price
Shooting is currently underway in Pennsylvania where the new Glass set photos were captured. The outlet reports that these were taken outside the shuttered Allentown State Hospital on Tuesday. They say that shooting is scheduled to last a few weeks at the real-life mental institution, which was built in 1912 and closed in 2010.
Glass revolves around the imprisoned Elijah Price (aka Mr. Glass), who holds secrets critical to both David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and Kevin Crumb (James McAvoy).
Shyamalan was quoted as saying in a recent interview: “I hope [a third Unbreakable film happens]. The answer is yes. I’m just such a wimp sometimes. I don’t know what’s going to happen when I go off in my room, a week after this film opens, to write the script. But I’m going to start writing. [I have] a really robust outline, which is pretty intricate. But now the standards for my outlines are higher. I need to know I’ve won already. I’m almost there but I’m not quite there.”
It seems he’s there now as shooting continues Stateside.
McAvoy also shared an image from the set this week over on his Instagram page.
‘I got a hair transplant!’ The actor posted a new image on Monday, a behind-the-scenes snap of himself as his Split character Kevin Wendell Crumb aka The Horde
