Fede Alvarez Confirms ‘Don’t Breathe’ Sequel is Still Happening

Stephen Lang and Dylan Minnette star in Screen Gems' horror-thriller DON'T BREATHE.

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. But six months have passed since we last heard a peep about a Don’t Breathe sequel, which has led us to wonder if it’s still happening.

According to Alvarez himself, it most definitely is:

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.”

    Sigh. Any one who read my posts already know what I’m going to say.
    I rather have…

      Me too

    • Creepshow

      …a good rap to the kisser.

  • Creepshow

    Can’t wait! I’ll be first in line to see something else.

  • Don’t Breathe is one of the best thrillers ever, but I don’t know if really needs a sequel.

    • qwef

      I agree, there are very few ways i could see this working and i LOVED the movie.

      I really really hope its not more kids get trapped into the house type of deal.

      • In my opinion, is more necessary a sequel for Evil Dead (2013).

        • qwef

          YES 100% agreed

          I would be jumping up and down if that was the case

          • Me too! I want to see Mia again!

    • Creepshow

      Whoa there Pedro, those are some strong words you’re throwing around. You hated Split, but it was still better than this turkey baster full of jizz. And you’re right, nobody needs to suffer through a sequel. One cum-shot to the face is enough.

      • Creepy, I loved the movie because is so intense, I found Split so overrated, boring, uninteresting and full of plot holes.

        • Creepshow

          I can respect your opinion of the two films, but to call Don’t Breathe one of the best thrillers ever, is an insult to even mediocre thrillers. I felt like Cookie Monster while watching it, because my eyes were rolling in my head so much.

    Still happening? Hasn’t even been a year since release.

    As I wait over here for this damn f13 to get off the ground.

    • MadCows

      We need another Friday the 13th already!

  • DarkBree

    Evil Dead sequel, please.

    • Weresmurf


  • Munchie

    Lemme guess, it’ll be about the blind dude’s jizz collection.

    Worst, most overhyped shit film in some time.

  • Rohan

    I thought don’t breathe was ok, but it was kind of a downer. I didn’t like Levy’s character, I would have liked to have seen her shot instead of the other kid. He was a much more interesting character.

  • The chicken man

    I was bored to tears by Don’t Breathe. And I love almost all horror just because. A sequel is unnecessary. Evil Dead please.

  • Simon Allen

    To quote myself ……”DON’T BOTHER !!!!! “

    • Creepshow

      That’s some Austin Powers shit right there.

      “Allow myself to quote…..myself.” Brilliant!

      • Simon Allen

        Thank you .Us Brits may have appalling teeth but we we are occasionally quite witty .

        • Creepshow

          Yeah, what’s up with that whole teeth thing? Are tooth brushes an illegal import?

          • Simon Allen

            I’m afraid most of it is down to the widespread Meth problem most of us have .

          • Creepshow

            That’ll do it. But meth is soo damn yummy.

          • Simon Allen

            So moreish .

          • Creepshow

            I hear you on that one. But hey, I only sniff coke because I like the smell of it.

  • Karl-Göran Gustavson

    The foreshadowing at the start of this movie ruined it for me. I still like it but I think the movie would have been way better if they excluded that scene.

  • Jeremie Jayzik

    I really, REALLY hope Evil Dead 2 is still bouncing around in his head. I’ve never been so entertained with a horror movie.

  • Billy Beefcaked

    Don’t Breathe was good. I gave it a 6/10 which I rate as “good”.

    I’m fine without a sequel personally. Let the story go.

    I would much prefer Evil Dead 2. That movie scared/grossed the hell out of me. I want to see the next chapter of that!
