Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues have plans for a Don’t Breathe sequel
Today, Don’t Breathe, the second feature film from Evil Dead‘s Fede Alvarez, comes home on Blu-ray and DVD. If you’ve already met Stephen Lang‘s Blind Man on the big screen, you know that a dark house might be the best way possible to experience the horror hit. That’s one of the topics Alvarez and producer/co-writer Rodo Sayagues discuss with CS in an exclusive video interview that you can watch in the player below!
“I think that our attitude as filmmakers is really to try and be as shocking as we can,” Alvarez says, likening his approach to film to a Heavy Metal show. “We don’t mind alienating an audience. We don’t mind kicking some people out of theater if they’re not true fans.”
True fans should be very excited to hear that a Don’t Breathe sequel is in the early stages of development. Check out the video for Alvarez and Sayagues’ thoughts on returning to the Blind Man down the road.
Don’t Breathe also stars Jane Levy (Evil Dead), Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps, Prisoners) and Daniel Zovatto (It Follows, Fear the Walking Dead), Don’t Breathe is a Screen Gems and Ghost House Pictures production, Don’t Breathe takes place in Detroit and centers on a trio of friends who routinely commit small time burglaries. When they uncover a score that they think will see them set for life, the group decide to break into the house of a blind man, thinking it will be easy to get in and out with a sizable amount of cash. As it turns out, what was to be an easy take may end up becoming the last thing any of them ever do.
Don’t Breathe was produced by Ghost House’s Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert alongside Joseph Drake, Nathan Kahane and J.R. Young.
