Fede Alvarez’s extremely suspenseful Don’t Breathe made it into my top 30 films of 2018 list, but rumours that there may be a sequel coming along seem to surface every now and again. Personally I don’t think it needs a sequel, and would much rather see one to his much-better-than-expected Evil Dead remake. Anyway, while out promoting his latest effort The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Alvarez was asked by ‘Movieweb’ about the sequels to both films, and replied:
“It doesn’t mean that we won’t make them. And that I make them might not be that I’m directing, but I might be producing. They’re just ideas right now. Nothing to announce officially. We do have a script for Don’t Breathe 2. That’s the only difference. We don’t have a script for Evil Dead 2. But we do have a script for Don’t Breathe 2 that we wrote. Once I’m done with The Girl in the Spider’s Web we’re gonna start thinking of ways to bring that story to the screen. Me directing or me producing. It really depends on the time that we’ll have. I’m particularly excited about that because it’s a really different sequel, when it comes to sequels. It’s a very different approach and I’m excited about that.”
Well I guess if it’s really different then maybe it’ll be worth making. In the meantime, The Girl in the Spider’s Web is in cinemas this Friday, and one of us will probably review it.
