WWE Studios has announced that it’s returning to the horror genre later this year as production gets underway on a sequel to 2006′s See No Evil, which will see WWE Superstar Kane returning as the reclusive madman Jacob Goodnight under American Mary directors Jen and Sylvia Soska. Here’s the official plot synopsis:
“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.“
See No Evil 2 will be distributed by Lionsgate, who is also set to tag up with the WWE on a reboot of the Lephrechaun franchise, with Hornswoggle taking on the role of Lubdan in Lephrechaun: Origins.
