Horror fans were clamoring over the horror thriller ‘Don’t Breathe‘ when it was released this year and even with an ending hinting at a sequel it almost looked like one might not be in the works, until now. In a recent interview, we didn’t learn anything about what it could be about but that an idea had bloomed that the pair would like to pursue. Of course, I would like to point out at this is all speculation at the moment as Sony hasn’t been informed or approved of the idea quite yet but Sam Raimi does say that they likely won’t enjoy what the duo have cooked up. First off, Fede Alvarez said that he wasn’t all of that interested in making a sequel until he came up with this idea. The concept was solid but with how events panned out it would be hard to really create something that wasn’t a prequel or just a direct ripoff of the first film:
“Right now we have Don’t Breathe 2 as something we really want to do. The challenge obviously is we just don’t want to do the same movie again and just have 2 in it. We’ll feel so embarrassed if we do that. At first, our reaction when they told us was no no no no no that’s Hollywood, that’s the devil pushing us to do something just because we can. And then we had an idea that we got really excited about, we won’t tell you what it is, it’ll spoil the whole thing…”
Before he could get another word out though Raimi jumped in:
“It’s only the greatest idea for a sequel I’ve ever heard. I’m not kidding.”
High praise from the creator of the ‘Evil Dead’ franchise and while I can’t see where they would go from here, I’m excited to find out! Let’s just hope that Sony is as well and pushes the project through. Especially when Alvarez says:
“(Sony is) going to freak out when they find out, but we’re excited about that. We’re probably going to start writing pretty soon. If I love it, I might direct it as well. We’ll see what happens. It’s exciting to see a character you want to see more out of it. At least I do. I’d love to see the blind man on the screen do some other things. What’s going to happen with him in his life?”
My money is not on this turning into a horror romantic comedy where he goes on a dating site and starts kidnapping women but you never know. Are you looking forward to whatever idea these two have cooked up for ‘Don’t Breathe 2’? What kind of a film do you think they might have in mind? Share your thoughts below!
