With The Girl in the Spider’s Web and a new Labyrinth film in the works, Fede Alvarez is one busy dude at the moment. But don’t worry. He’s not leaving horror behind.
It was announced back in November that a sequel to Don’t Breathe was on the menu, which was not surprising to hear given the film raked in $150 million at the worldwide box office on a $10 million budget. At the time, Alvarez even said that he was potentially returning to the director’s chair.

As Alvarez and producer Sam Raimi explained back in November, the focus of the sequel will be the Blind Man, played by Stephen Lang. “The challenge obviously is we just don’t want to do the same movie again and just have 2 in it,” Alvarez noted. Raimi added, “It’s only the greatest idea for a sequel I’ve ever heard. I’m not kidding.”
