WWE Superstar Kane, a dominant force within the WWE, is set to reprise his lead role as reclusive madman Jacob Goodnight in See No Evil 2. Fanboy favorites and identical twin directors of horror the Soska Sisters, Jen and Sylvia (American Mary), are set to helm the film. See No Evil 2 was penned by co-writers Nathan Brookes and Bobby Lee Darby.
See No Evil 2 revives the nightmare of the first film when Jacob Goodnight rises from the dead in the city morgue after his killing spree at the Blackwell Hotel. In this ominous, underground locker for the dead, a group of medical students fight to survive as the deranged psychopath once again starts to pick them apart one by one.
Lionsgate will handle worldwide distribution of See No Evil 2, while WWE Studios will utilize its extensive global reach through television, digital and social media, and print assets to market the film.
See No Evil 2 is the fourth partnership between Lionsgate and WWE Studios following See No Evil, The Condemned, and a reboot of the Leprechaun franchise.
