Rodo Sayagues to Direct ‘Don’t Breathe’ Sequel

While director Fede Alvarez will not return for the sequel to Don’t Breathe, he did find a replacement that he knows and trusts.

Rodo Sayagues, the co-writer (along with Alvarez) of 2016’s Don’t Breathe and 2013’s Evil Dead remake, will make his directorial debut with the sequel, which will begin production in April.  Sayagues is also listed as co-writer of Don’t Breathe 2.

Stephen Lang will reprise his role as the Blind Man and The Hollywood Reporter describes the few plot details, and it appears that the new film will be “…set several years after the home invasion of the first movie, with the Blind Man living in quiet solace…until his past sins catch up to him.”

Alvarez, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert of Ghost House Pictures and Good Universe will serve as producers of the new film.  Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisition and their subsidiary Stage 6 Films will provide the financing for the lucrative horror sequel.

Don’t Breathe made a robust $157 million worldwide on a budget of only $10 million, a figure that any studio would “kill” for in today’s market.

Stay tuned to Horror News Network for more information on the sequel as it is announced.
