Filming has now wrapped on Don’t Breathe 2, the sequel to Fede Alverez’s 2016 hit home invasion horror. Stephen Lang, who starred in the original returns as the badass blind man.
During a chat with THR earlier this week, Lang teased that the sequel will be “very much its own thing.”
I never walked away from a scene on this feeling like we’d left something on the table there. We really strived to get everything we could out of it,” said Lang. “It has a tremendous kinship with the first film, but in many ways — in every way — it’s very much its own thing.”
We kind of debate and negotiate and massage every word, every phrase, every grunt,” Lang added. “We all have a ball doing it, because we enjoy working together. On the day-to-day life on set, I had a lot of input into it.”
Don’t Breathe 2 is the feature directorial debut of Rodo Sayagues, who co-wrote the Don’t Breathe with Alverez.
In the sequel, the blind man has been hiding out for years in an isolated cabin and has taken in and raised a young girl orphaned from a house fire. Their quiet life is shattered when a group of kidnappers takes the girl, forcing the man to leave their once safe haven to save her.
Bobby Schofield, Rocci Williams, and Adam Young co-star in Don’t Breathe 2, set to open in theaters in the summer of 2021.
