Well, this is certainly a weird day for news. In a completely out-of-nowhere announcement per Variety, WWE & Lionsgate are teaming again to make a sequel to the 2006 slasher, SEE NO EVIL. They’ve tapped independent filmmaking duo Jen & Sylvia Soska (AMERICAN MARY) to helm SEE NO EVIL 2, making this their studio debut. WWE wrestler Kane be back to presumably gouge eyes & rack up a body count.
Sure, SEE NO EVIL is a nasty, mean-spirited (even fun) little film, but it’s been 7 years since it came out. WWE Films seems committed to staying in the horror genre after NO ONE LIVES and the upcoming LEPRECHAUN remake (don’t forget the direct-to-video BARRICADE!), and what better way to create a franchise than with a belated sequel.
Kane will return as the reclusive madman Jacob Goodnight, who rises from the dead in the city morgue after his killing spree at the Blackwell hotel and goes after a group of medical students who fight to survive.
