Director Rodo Sayagues’ Don’t Breathe 2 with Stephen Lang has wrapped filming and will be unleashed in August. And today we learned the MPAA slapped it with a hard R-rating for “strong bloody violence, gruesome images, and language.”
Sounds good to us!
Set years after the 2016 hit, the horror sequel catches up with blind veteran Norman Nordstrom (Stephen Lang). He’s been living in an isolated cabin but has his solace interrupted when past sins catch up to him.
Don’t Breathe was directed by Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead, The Girl in the Spider’s Web) from a screenplay co-written with Sayagues. Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert produced.
The first flick followed three thieves (including Jane Levy) who get word about a blind veteran who won a major cash settlement following the death of his only child, the trio invades the man’s secluded home in an abandoned neighborhood. Finding themselves trapped inside, the young intruders must fight for their lives after making a shocking discovery about their supposedly helpless victim.
Don’t Breathe 2 hits theaters on August 13, 2021.
