It was announced last month that WWE Studios is bringing See No Evil back to life, producing a sequel with Lionsgate to the horror film that will again star wrestler Kane as a psychopath that goes on a killing spree, Variety had reported.
Production on See No Evil 2 will start in the fall, with identical twin helmers the Jen and Sylvia Soska (American Mary) set to direct.
In addition to WWE’s Kane, the film will star Danielle Harris (pictured below; Hatchet 2, Hatchet 3, Rob Zombie’s Halloween and its sequel) and Katharine Isabelle (pictured above; American Mary, Ginger Snaps, Freddy vs. Jason) and Michael Eklund (The Call, The Marine 3: Homefront, The Day), say Dread Central.
“Kane will return as the reclusive madman Jacob Goodnight, who rises from the dead in the city morgue after his killing spree at the Blackwell hotel and goes after a group of medical students who fight to survive.”
In Gregory Dark’s first film, Kane’s seven-foot tall, 400-pound character has a rusty steel plate screwed into his skull and razor-sharp fingernails as he stalks a group of juvenile delinquents tasked with cleaning up an abandoned hotel.
See No Evil was the first film that WWE produced through its film division, and went on to earn $19 million worldwide when it was released in 2006 — its biggest hit until this year’s Halle Berry thriller The Call, which generated $52 million to date.
