Stephen Lang is confident the Don't Breathe sequel will happen

Stephen Lang Don't Breathe Fede Alvarez

The Sam Raimi-produced, Fede Alvarez-directed home invasion horror film DON'T BREATHE was a hit in the summer of 2016, earning $157 million at the global box office on a budget just under $10 million. As you'd expect, the filmmakers intend to make a sequel - but they're not exactly striking while the iron is hot on this one. A year and a half after the film's release, Alvarez is working on rebooting the GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO franchise with THE GIRL IN THE SPIDER'S WEB and there's been nothing but silence regarding DON'T BREATHE 2 for quite a while.

At one time, Raimi said that Alvarez's plan for the follow-up was "the greatest idea for a sequel I've ever heard." That was so long ago (fourteen months ago), I had forgotten he actually said that.

So what's going on with DON'T BREATHE 2? Is this sequel going to happen or not? There has been no official word, but someone who is confident that the sequel is going to be made is actor Stephen Lang, who played DON'T BREATHE's homicidal kidnapper Blind Man who's looking for a girl to impregnate with a turkey baster. When asked by Screen Rant if there had been any sequel or prequel talks, Lang replied, 

Oh yeah, we're doing a sequel."

We'll have to take the Blind Man's word on it for now.

Starring Lang, Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, and Daniel Zovatto, the first DON'T BREATHE had the following synopsis: 

Three teens who get away with perfectly planned home robberies have set their sights on one last payout that will get them out of crime forever. Their target: a reclusive blind man with millions of dollars in hiding. But as soon as they break into his home, the tables are turned and they find themselves trapped and fighting for survival against a psychopath with secrets of his own.

We'll let you know if/when there is any further news about the sequel.
