WWE Studios and Lionsgate announced today that production on See No Evil 2, the follow up to the duo's 2006 horror release, See No Evil, is scheduled to start in fall 2013. WWE Superstar Kane, a dominant force within the WWE, is set to reprise his lead role as reclusive madman Jacob Goodnight. Fanboy favorites and identical twin directors of horror, the Soska Sisters, Jen and Sylvia (American Mary), are set to helm the film. See No Evil 2 was penned by co-writers Nathan Brookes and Bobby Lee Darby.

See No Evil 2 revives the nightmare of the first film when Jacob Goodnight rises from the dead in the city morgue after his killing spree at the Blackwell hotel. In this ominous, underground locker for the dead, a group of medical students fight to survive as this deranged psychopath once again starts to pick them apart one by one.

Lionsgate will handle worldwide distribution of See No Evil 2, while WWE Studios will utilize its extensive global reach through television, digital and social media and print assets to market the film.

WWE Studios President Michael Luisi offered the following statement about this sequel.

"We are so pleased to extend what has been an ideal partnership with
Lionsgate. Their expertise in distributing and marketing thrilling genre films complements our own vision and efforts for these movies perfectly. We are equally excited to work with the Soska Sisters, who will apply their truly unique filmmaking style to See No Evil 2."


Lionsgate Motion Picture Group President Steve Beeks released his own statement regarding the follow-up.

"The WWE team has proven success in building strong global brands and have proven to be a great partner in our past ventures together. We are thrilled to expand the partnership in the development and marketing of genre features that marry WWE's stars with our own global distribution expertise."


See No Evil 2 is the fourth partnership between Lionsgate and WWE Studios following See No Evil, The Condemned and a reboot of the Leprechaun franchise.

See No Evil was released May 19th, 2006 and stars Glenn Jacobs, Christina Vidal, Michael J. Pagan, Samantha Noble, Steven Vidler, Cecily Polson, Luke Pegler, Rachael Taylor. The film is directed by Gregory Dark.

    bad idea. he died and it was sick. making part2 to something like this is nothing but money grab. just like "hatchet" they keep bringing him back even after he's been 200% dead. if you wanna make more, then dont kill him off. but dont make 1 of those movies where you kill off somebody and then try to bring them back from the dead. or make it seem like they lived.
