There’s a ‘Don’t Breathe’ Sequel in the Works

Don’t Hold Your Breath? That would be a cool title for a sequel to Fede Alvarez‘s Don’t Breathe, which was one of the biggest horror films of 2016.

The film banked in $150 million worldwide on a $10 million budget, which by using unconfirmed math would mean it soaked in a hefty $50 million in profits before even arriving on home video. With those kind of numbers there’s absolutely no reason to not attempt a sequel.

Alvarez confirmed to Comingsoon that he is in fact developing a sequel and intends on returning to the director’s chair.

In the film, 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 (Stephen Lang) 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.

The big twist is that there’s a young woman trapped in the basement, who turns out to be the girl who accidentally killed the blind man’s daughter. Hypothetically, we could see a prequel and learn how this girl ends up in a blind man’s basement (although in my head it’s as simple as she was overcome with guilt and stopped by the man’s house looking for redemption). A sequel was teased in a deleted scene in which the blind man is following Levy at an airport, cane and all. More than anything I’m interested in how they could further this story that seems to have run its course.

    Wouldn’t “Hold Your Breath” make more sense…? But I think Don’t Breathe 2 would suffice. Interested to see where they go with this. Assuming it will be a while before we see it since Alvarez is working on the next Girl With the Dragon Tattoo film.

      Woodsboro, i’m glad you brought up the fact that Fede is first going to do GIRL IN THE SPIDER’S WEB before any DON’T BREATHE sequel. it’s worth being noted.

      • Simon Allen

        I’m pretty surprised that this site hasn’t reported that as it’s pretty common knowledge ….but then again . not really LOL.

    Hold Your Cojones.

    “Don’t Hold Your Breath” would mean exhaling. Which is breathing. Which is the exact opposite of what Fede wants to do. Come on, man.

    Also, there’s probably a fair amount of people who haven’t seen the film that don’t need it spoiled for them. Not sure why spoilers had to be included.

  • Simon Allen

    I’ve got a great title for it ….”Don’t Bother !”

    • Creepshow

      “Don’t Breathe” is sound advice. That way you won’t smell this sloppy fart.

      • Simon Allen

        Whatever we do …it will always stink !!!

        • Creepshow

          I can’t even imagine how dumb and uninteresting the sequel will be. And I will gladly never find out. Because, if I wanted to watch crap, I’d stare into the toilet before I flush. (It be more entertaining too)

          • Simon Allen

            The only terrifying thing about Don’t Breathe is that there now will be a sequel .

          • Nick Botic

            Man…you guys are so cool. I wanna be just like you when I grow up

    • Se_7_eN

      Damn, that was good.

      • Simon Allen

        I thank you !

  • The movie is really good but doesn’t need a sequel! I would prefer Evil Dead 2.

  • Sasha Kozak

    Got no problem with a sequel if the same director is handling it and they let him take his time.

  • Rowdy

    More turkey baster action?

  • G.A. McGillivray


    I’m glad I just recently saw this or I would have been pissed that this article ruins any surprise from the last half of the movie which I though made it more interesting of a movie… Talk about spoiler. Sure, lots of people saw this movie but come on…. You can’t spoil a movie after it’s been in theatres only a few months….

  • Oh fuck no.

  • corpus vile

    I really disliked his Evil Dead remake but thought Don’t Breathe was really good, so I’ve no problem with him doing a sequel and would be open minded going into it.


      It’s not perfect but I really enjoyed his take on evil dead.

      I didn’t really like Don’t breathe though.

      But I can see why it got the high praise that it did though.

      Only reasons I didn’t like it though is probably because I didn’t like the characters that and I kept thinking these guys are idiots.

      • corpus vile

        Sorry I had meant to say “entertaining” and edited. I enjoyed Don’t Breathe but equally get why others don’t- it had serious plot holes & I agree with you on the characters being thoroughly unlikable.

  • Cure4Humanity

    You should maybe have considered putting up a spoiler warning for people that might not have seen it.

    “Ugh” is right. I liked Don’t Breathe. It was suspenseful, more action than dialogue, and different from other films currently about, but I didn’t care for it enough to nor do I think the story has enough to be a sequel. Again, the worst part of the movie industry: something makes money because it’s inspired which ironically makes sequels just to make money. Fede is talented and shouldn’t waste time on a sequel to a solid film and should invest energy into another good, inspired project.

    • Freida Peeple

      the sequel is entitled “DON’T FART” and focuses more on his acute sense of smell.

      • THGrimm

        You’re hilarious. I can’t type enough “haha” to accurately describe how much I laughed at that.
