According to a report from Variety, WWE and Lionsgate are once again partnering for a sequel to the surprisingly successful See No Evil film first released in 2006 starring Glen Jacobs, who you know much better as Kane, as madman Jacob Goodnight.
And, yes, he's back for more.
From the report:
Production on "See No Evil 2″ will start in the fall, with identical twin helmers the Soska Sisters Jen and Sylvia ("American Mary") set to direct. They are also among the directors that will contribute to the anthology series "ABCs of Death 2."
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. Nathan Brookes and Bobby Lee Darby are co-writing the script.
The first flick grossed just over $15 million on a budget of $8 million, though it received negative reviews across the board. That's because it was a stock horror slasher flick. Certainly nothing worthy of a sequel, but it was the most successful WWE film for years until Halle Berry came along with The Call and claimed that spot.
This makes it possible, at the very least, that Kane could be written off television following his SummerSlam match against Bray Wyatt, which was just made official during last night's episode of Monday Night Raw.
Let's just hope this doesn't lead to another silly ass storyline like the May 19 nonsense when the first movie came out.
