Kane to star in ‘See No Evil’ sequel



WWE.com

WWE Studios and Lionsgate have announced 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. Kane is set to reprise his lead role as reclusive madman Jacob Goodnight. Genre 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″ 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.

“We are so pleased to extend what has been an ideal partnership with Lionsgate,” said Michael Luisi, President, WWE Studios. “Their expertise in distributing and marketing thrilling genre films complements our own vision and efforts for these movies perfectly. Our enthusiasm is amplified with the addition of the Soska Sisters on board to apply their truly unique style to ‘See No Evil 2.’ ”

“The WWE team has proven success in building strong global brands and have proven to be a great partner in our past ventures together,” said Steve Beeks, Co-Chief Operating Officer and Motion Picture Group President at Lionsgate. “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 an upcoming reboot of the “Leprechaun” franchise.

    Honestly that build makes me feel like this one is going to better then the first. Which was a decent horror movie, completely watchable and entertaining but nothing special.

    I’m a little intrigued on their leprechaun reboot project, even though i’m not sure it’s a reboot in more just using the name, since given only one person played the original leprechaun, i don’t see why Hornswoggle can’t simply be a new leprechaun and coexist. And besides it’s not like Leprechaun was the only killer leprechaun movie anyway, i hope both these projects do well, i’ll buy them for sure.

    I did pick up The Day but i haven’t watched it yet, and i really have no interest in action films, so that eliminates me probably being entertained by a lot of the things WWE Films has made/been involved with.

    Overall i say i’m happy they did learn something from their past issues, this new method of either direct to video with limited runs or partnering up with a bigger studio for bigger projects are a true sign the heads at WWE are screwed on right, and not like the internet make believe land wants to believe.

    So, does this mean he will lose to Wyatt at Summer Slam???

    I’m curious to see if this means he’s losing the mask again or if just won’t be wearing it for the movie, but still keep it on when he’s wrestling. But then that would be weird. All I know is, that for me personally, I don’t want to see him lose the mask again.
