The sequel to 2016 horror-thriller Don’t Breathe has been filming in Belgrade, Serbia!
Actor Stephen Lang, who is reprising his terrifying role as the Blind Man in the follow-up, tweeted out to fans that he had completed shooting the film. It’s not clear if the sequel is done filming altogether, or it was simply Lang’s section that had wrapped.
“I’m wrapped! A splendidly rugged shoot,” Lang posted. “Thank you Belgrade. All health and safety protocols observed to the letter. Well done all!”

Fede Alvarez directed the first film and is this time on board as co-writer and producer. Making his feature directorial debut with the film is Rodo Sayagues, who co-wrote the first and 2013’s Evil Dead with Alvaraz.
The synopsis on Don’t Breathe 2‘s IMDb listing is simply, “The Blind Man returns to terrorize more unsuspecting people.” Another synopsis that has been doing the rounds reads: “Don’t Breathe 2 is set several years after the home invasion of the first movie, with the Blind Man living in quiet solace…until his past sins catch up to him.”
Not too much to go on, BUT, horror site Bloody Disgusting may have now unveiled a good amount more:
In Don’t Breathe 2, the Blind Man has been hiding out for years in an isolated cabin and has taken in and raised a young girl orphaned from a house fire.
Their quiet existence is shattered when a group of kidnappers show up and take the girl, forcing the Blind Man to leave his safe haven to save her.
While nothing is official at this stage, if that synopsis is what it sounds like, could the Blind Man be more of a protagonist this time around? It’s going to be interesting if we’ll be having to root for him, in any capacity, considering how much of a monster he turned out to be in the first film. There’s also no word on whether the first film’s star Jane Levy will be back in the sequel; her arc was left on a bit of an open ending.
Don’t Breathe was quite the hit, making over $US157 million worldwide from a budget of around $US10 million. Stay tuned for more on the sequel.
