Fede Alvarez and his Don’t Breathe cast take you inside this Friday’s intense, exacting thriller
After making his feature film debut with 2013’s Evil Dead, writer and director Fede Alvarez is back with the equally intense Don’t Breathe, in theaters this Friday. CS had the chance to sit down with Alvarez and his Don’t Breathe cast for look inside the edge-of-your-seat thriller. Headlined by Evil Dead star Jane Levy, the Don’t Breathe cast also includes Dylan Minnette (Goosebumps, Prisoners), Daniel Zovatto (It Follows, Fear the Walking Dead) and, as the film’s terrifying antagonist The Blind Man, Avatar star Stephen Lang. In the player below, you can watch as Alvarez explains how the film was first mapped out with action figures (with Chewbacca in Lang’s role!) while he and the cast also reveal their choices for the best movies to double feature with Don’t Breathe.
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 scripted by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues and is produced by Ghost House’s Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert alongside Joseph Drake, Nathan Kahane and J.R. Young. Look for it to open in theaters Friday, August 26.
