A film that left fans stunned around the world in 2016, Don't Breathe, starring Avatar fame Stephen Lang alongside Jane Levy, Dylan Minnette and Daniel Zovatto under Fede Álvarez's direction was a massive commercial and critical success. The horror-thriller made at a budget of less than $10 million went on to collect over $150 million worldwide. Now, the sequel to the global blockbuster titled Don't Breathe 2 directed by Rodo Sayagues will be coming out in theatres across India on September 17 in English, Tamil, Telugu and Hindi languages. 

Stephen Lang reprises his role as Norman in Don't Breathe 2 and will be seen this time as an anti-villain – a twisted, misguided man who thinks he’s doing the right thing, but ultimately, there’s no hiding who he really is. Speaking about his role in the upcoming sequel, Lang says, "His moral compass is completely broken." He adds, "I think most people think they’re in the right – villains don’t know they’re villains. But this character has been beaten down so many times, and his will to survive is so strong, that he can no longer tell the difference between what is right and what is not. For him, there’s only survival, or not." 

Don't Breathe 2 is set eight years after the events of the original film and shows Norman now living with 11-year-old Phoenix, the daughter he’s always wanted. Speaking about the character Norman in the sequel, director Sayagues says, "Norman was by far the most interesting character in the first movie,. We realized there’s something that’s never been done before, which is to take the villain from a movie and tell his story in the front seat. We could never make him the hero – he isn’t heroic – but we could tell a story from his point of view…We thought that was a lot of fun – let’s further explore this guy’s life and character, and let’s tell his story about what happened to him after the first movie." He adds, "We’re expanding the character, dwelling deep into his heart and soul, into his psyche. What makes this guy unique? He’s very tough on Phoenix – putting her through a military training routine – but he also clearly cares for her and genuinely loves her. This little girl is all that matters in his life."
