Fede Alvarez confirms Don't Breathe 2 is written & ready to roll

Last week we passed along the news that director Fede Alvarez (THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB) is still very much interested in taking the helm of LABYRINTH 2. And earlier this year we passed along a tweet from the busy-ass director asking fans which sequel they would rather see, DON'T BREATHE 2 or EVIL DEAD II. And today, Alvarez addressed the latter tweet regarding sequels to his hit films, and some of his comments are positive and some... not so much. But there is a script for DON'T BREATHE 2!

Fede Alvarez on DON'T BREATHE 2 and EVIL DEAD II:

They're just ideas right now. Nothing to announce officially. 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.

Regarding his tweet about the two films, he adds:

I've learned to shut my mouth when it comes to these things. It tends to turn into headlines. 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.

Yeah, sorry, Fede but I'm in the boat with everyone else who would rather see a sequel to EVIL DEAD (2013) than a sequel to DON'T BREATHE. Not that I wouldn't fucking LOVE to see DON'T BREATHE... AGAIN! (or whatever it'll be called), I'm just more interested in seeing EVIL DEAD... AGAIN! (or whatever they end up calling it). Which of Fede Alvarez's sequels would you rather see first? Let us know below!

DON'T BREATHE stars Jane Levy,  Dylan Minnette, and Stephen Lang and follows

Rocky (Jane Levy), Alex and Money are three Detroit thieves who get their kicks by breaking into the houses of wealthy people. Money gets word about a blind veteran who won a major cash settlement following the death of his only child. Figuring he's an easy target, the trio invades the man's secluded home in an abandoned neighborhood. Finding themselves trapped inside, the young intruders must fight for their lives after making a shocking discovery about their supposedly helpless victim.

EVIL DEAD (2013) also starred Levy and followed

Mia (Jane Levy), a drug addict, is determined to kick the habit. To that end, she asks her brother, David (Shiloh Fernandez), his girlfriend, Natalie (Elizabeth Blackmore) and their friends Olivia (Jessica Lucas) and Eric (Lou Taylor Pucci) to accompany her to their family's remote forest cabin to help her through withdrawal. Eric finds a mysterious Book of the Dead at the cabin and reads aloud from it, awakening an ancient demon. All hell breaks loose when the malevolent entity possesses Mia.
