Are you expecting a sequel of “Don’t Breathe”? The horror-thriller film that was released in 2016 is confirmed to get a sequel.
News emerged, when the director, Fade Alvarez asked his Twitter followers which sequel they would like to see made first: “Don’t Breathe 2” or “Evil Dead 2”? “Evil Dead “ won a wide margin, hardly a surprise given the franchise’s fans base dates back to Sam Raimi’s original film that was first released in 1981.
In his recent interview with MovieWeb, Alvarez said:
I’ve learned to shut my mouth when it comes to these things, we just never want to play with anyone’s expectations. When I tweeted that I was interested in seeing what people prefer. We were having some internal debates about what people would be interested in most. Unfortunately, ‘Evil Dead 2’ won. Which, I guess I would have preferred ‘Don’t Breathe 2’ to win because it’s one of my own creations. Obviously, ‘Evil Dead’ has the bigger following. So that’s what happened.
In the interviews, Alvarez also announced in terms of whether or not “Evil Dead 2” or “Don’t Breathe 2” will actually happen one day, but he did reveal that there is at least a script for the latter.
We do have a script for ‘Don’t Breathe 2.’ That’s the only difference. We don’t have a script for ‘Evil Dead 2.’ But we do have a script for ‘Don’t Breathe 2’ that we wrote. Once I’m done with [‘The Girl in the Spider’s Web’] we’re gonna start thinking of ways to bring that story to the screen. Me directing or me producing. It really depends on the time that we’ll have. I’m particularly excited about that because it’s a really different sequel, when it comes to sequels. It’s a very different approach and I’m excited about that.
It remains unclear whether Alvarez will be back to direct or just a producer of the film, but it appears “Don’t Breathe 2” will become an actual movie before “Evil Dead 2.” Screen Gems released “Don’t Breathe” in August 2016 and it became a horror blockbuster, starring Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette and Stephen Lang, “Don’t Breather” earned over $150 million worldwide opposite a budget just under $10 million. The film centered around a group of kids who try to rob a blind man, only to realize he can’t easily be fooled.
