The Soska Sisters Set to Helm See No Evil 2; WWE Superstar Kane Returning in Lead Role





The Soska Sisters Set to Helm See No Evil 2; WWE Superstar Kane Returning in Lead RoleWWE Studios and Lionsgate announced today that production on See No Evil 2, the follow-up to their 2006 horror release See No Evil, is scheduled to start in fall 2013 with Kane returning in the lead role and the Soska Sisters directing.

From the Press Release:
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.

"We are so pleased to extend what has been an ideal partnership with Lionsgate,” said Michael Luisi, President, WWE Studios. “Their expertise in distributing and marketing thrilling genre films complements our own vision and efforts for these movies perfectly. We are equally excited to work with the Soska Sisters, who will apply their truly unique filmmaking style to See No Evil 2.”

"The WWE team has proven success in building strong global brands and have proven to be a great partner in our past ventures together," said Steve Beeks, Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President, Lionsgate. "We are thrilled to expand the partnership in the development and marketing of genre features that marry WWE's stars with our own global distribution expertise."

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.

Of all of the WWE films; 'See No Evil' is the best, it's a decent slasher film no more no less and delivered some fun kills.

Your excitement tells me you obviously haven't seen too many WWE movie sequels the past few years.

I thought the first one was a surprisingly good fun slasher movie, so I'll check this out. It should also be said that Platinum Dunes' Friday the 13th remake was a remake of See No Evil disguised as a Friday the 13th movie. Seriously look at Jason keeping that girl captive and compare it to Jacob Goodnight doing the same with Samantha Noble's character in See No Evil.
