Don’t Breathe 2–directed by Rodo Sayagues, who co-wrote the screenplay with Fede Alvarez (who directed the original film)–reportedly is set several years after the horrific home invasion depicted in the first movie. The Blind Man is now living in peace–at least until his past catches up to him.
In the sequel, the Blind Man has isolated himself in a secluded cabin, and has even been raising a young girl who was left homeless by a devastating fire. But their peace is shattered when kidnappers show up, snatch the girl and force the Blind Man to abandon his cabin and try to rescue her.
The film was produced by Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Alvarez, with Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisition and its Stage 6 Films division backing the movie.
The original Don’t Breathe–which starred Lang, Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette and Daniel Zovatto–followed three friends who had pulled off a string of burglaries. But when they break into the house of a certain blind man–thinking it will be an easy score–they soon learn it may be the last heist any of them ever attempt.
The film–directed by Alvarez and produced by Raimi, Tapert, Joseph Drake, Nathan Kahane and J.R. Young–was a sleeper hit and a cash cow, grossing $157 million worldwide on a budget of just $10 million.
No release date for the sequel has been set as of this writing, so keep reading Horror News Network for all updates on Don’t Breathe 2.
