Master of the twist ending M Night Shyamalan has two more movies on the way.

The Glass director will direct two currently untitled thrillers to be released by Universal on February 26, 2021 and February 17, 2023 respectively, and he has confirmed them both as "original films".

"There are wonderful studios out there, but Universal has made it a mandate to release original films," Shyamalan said (via Variety).

"They are the best at finding an audience for new stories with unexpected tones."

"I believe original films are crucial to the longevity of the theatrical experience. I am so excited to be working with them again and bringing new stories to the movie screen for years to come."

Universal Pictures president Peter Cramer added: "M. Night Shyamalan continues to create exciting, highly original stories that keep global audiences on the edge of their seats."

"There is no one like him: he is a master filmmaker working at the height of his powers, and we are honoured that he has once again chosen Universal to be the home for his next two incredible projects."

News of Shyamalan's forthcoming projects follows the director claiming that Glass, a follow up to Unbreakable and Split, would be an end to that particular universe.

It also follows him previously admitting that he "cried" over bad Glass reviews and admitting that he will only make a Marvel of DC movie under one condition.

"There’s been light conversations in the past about these things," Shyamalan previously told Entertainment Weekly. "But it would have to be in a way that would allow for very weird, big weirdness to be okay.

"I mean, you never know, you never know."
