According to Daily Mail, the recent set photos of the Glass movie shows Jackson donning a purple metallic trench coat outside Allentown State Hospital on its Pennsylvania set. He is reprising the role of a comic book art gallery owner-turned-arch villain Elijah Price aka Mr. Glass.

The 39-day-production of the movie has begun on October 3 and is still going on in a real-life mental institution which has been shuttered since 2010.

Split star James McAvoy and Anya Taylor-Joy will also join the movie as well. Besides that, Sarah Paulson has joined the cast to play a significant role.

McAvoy recently took to Instagram to tease the new look of his character Kevin Wendell Crumb aka The Horde. In the black-and-white photo, he was seen wearing a wig of long hair as captioned: "I got a hair transplant."

Split 2 or Glass is set to be released on January 18, 2019.
