The first Don’t Breathe was a chilling horror-thriller with Stephen Lang playing a pretty vile character who is anything but noble. A sequel is on its way and this time it looks like Lang’s The Blind Man is coming back with a vengeance and turning into an anti-hero or anti-villain as the case may be which bodes really interesting. Check out the new key art and trailer below!
Some people are not comfortable with the synopsis as the Blind Man was a pretty heinous chat in the original but director Rodo Sayagues who could-wrote the screenplay with Fede Alvarez promises that Lang is not a good guy. Interesting indeed. I think it’s a good idea just like Scott Adkins’ Boyka turned into an anti-hero after Undisputed 2.
Stephen Lang is a film treasure and his profound gravitas elevates any movie he is in. I’ve been a fan since Band of the Hand back in the 80’s and when Lang’s name is attached, genre fans are always in for a chaotic and mesmerizing treat.
Lang stars along with Adam Young, Bobby Schofield, Rocci Williams, and Madelyn Grace.
