Interview: Fede Alvarez Talks Don’t Breathe (Exclusive)
Immediately judging a person just on their appearance is an erroneous trait that many people take on, as they’re encouraged to follow society’s lead of not thinking they should appreciate others for their personalities more than anything else. Swiftly being placed in dangerous situations that reveal people’s character as they struggle to protect themselves ultimately proves whether or not those instant intuitions are indeed accurate. Director and producer Fede Alvarez, who wrote the script for the horror film, ‘Don’t Breathe,’ with his frequent co-scribe, Rodo Sayagues, stunningly proved that people’s natural reactions in times of despair offer the most accurate insight into their temperament.

Newswire: Don’t Breathe is probably getting a sequel

  • The AV Club
Here’s some bad news for desperate criminals looking to make an easy score by breaking into homes belonging to elderly blind soldiers: Fede Alvarez’s thriller Don’t Breathe is probably getting a sequel. We don’t actually know if it’ll involve more people foolishly pissing off a blind badass like the first movie, but Alvarez and co-writer Rodo Sayagues are at least pretty sure that the movie is going to happen. Speaking with Coming Soon, the two revealed that they’re developing a Don’t Breathe sequel and that they “know exactly where it goes,” but they wouldn’t say much more beyond that. If we had to guess, we’d say the sequel will be called Can’t Breathe and it’ll involve criminals evading a blind man while in space or underwater, but that’s just wishful thinking.

We probably won’t be seeing this

Fede Alvarez Confirms ‘Don’t Breathe’ Sequel In The Works

  • The Playlist
When Sony sat back and looked at the spreadsheet for “Don’t Breathe,” they were likely quite pleased. Fede Alvarez‘s late-summer horror/thriller cost under $10 million, but received strong reviews and won over audiences to the tune of $152 million worldwide. That’s quite the return on investment, and it’s not a surprise the studio felt confident giving the director keys to “The Girl In The Spider’s Web.” But they also know potential franchise material when they see it, and we’re going to be getting a follow-up to “Don’t Breathe.”

“There’s…going to be more ‘Don’t Breathe,’ ” Alvarez’s producer and co-writer Rodo Sayagues told ComingSoon.

Don’t Breathe 2 Is Already In Development

Without a doubt, Fede Alvarez’s Don’t Breathe was one of the very best horror films of the year.

There’d been murmurs of one for a while now, and while chatting to Coming Soon to promote the film’s Blu-ray release, Alvarez and producer Rodo Sayagues finally confirmed it.

“Is it all true?” says Alvarez. “Yeah, it’s true. We’re putting together the story right now. Obviously, there’s a book and there’s a script that’s great. Because we write everything I direct, we’re working on that part right now to make it our own and put our imprint in it so it feels like it’s part of our filmography.”
