Don’t Breathe was released in 2016, produced and directed by Fede Álvarez. The film stars Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette, Daniel Zovatto, and Stephen Lang, and focuses on three friends who get trapped inside a blind man’s house while breaking into it.
The film became one of the surprising horror hits of 2016, which led to the news of a sequel was being developed a while back, and when ScreenRant asked Stephen Lang who played the very deadly blind man in the first film, he replied, “Oh yeah, we’re doing a sequel.”
Now, Don’t Breathe 2, which is reportedly titled Don’t Breathe Again, lately, is currently in the works. Stephen Lang reported via twitter that he’s wrapped filming.
I’m wrapped! A splendidly rugged shoot. Thank you Belgrade. All health and safety protocols observed to the letter. Well done all! #@DontBreathe #@DontBreatheMovie pic.twitter.com/u8CUBIBCVc

There are not many details yet about the plot for the sequel, only that the film is being directed by Rodo Sayagues. Producer Sam Raimi is really excited about the project, telling IGN: “It’s only the greatest idea for a sequel I’ve ever heard. I’m not kidding.”
In that same interview, Álvarez added: “The challenge obviously is we just don’t want to do the same movie again and just have 2 in it. We’ll feel so embarrassed if we do that. At first our reaction when they told us was no no no no no that’s Hollywood, that’s the devil pushing us to do something just because we can. And then we had an idea that we got really excited about, we won’t tell you what it is, it’ll spoil the whole thing.”
Álvarez also said: “It’s exciting to see a character you want to see more out of it. At least I do. I’d love to see the blind man on the screen do some other things. What’s going to happen with him in his life?” This certainly indicates that Lang’s blind man character plays a major part, which brings us back to the start of this story: filming is either completed or close to it.
